Six Dallas Chicken Sandwiches to Eat While You Protest Chick-Fil-A
If you haven't heard, tomorrow is National Same-Sex Kiss Day at Chick-fil-A. The event encourages gay rights supporters to head to their nearest Chick-fil-A restaurant and take pictures or videos of themselves making out. News of the event spurred Mike Huckabee to call for a preemptive Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day that drew customers in the hundreds to many locations to sit around and eat chicken -- kind of boring comparatively.
But that doesn't solve the real problem at hand: the need to eat fried-chicken sandwiches. That in mind, here are six sandwiches around Dallas to help sate your desire for a little bird between the buns.
Off-Site Kitchen (pictured above)
It's small, but so is Chick-fil-A's, and the crunchy crust on the chicken blows the fast-food version out of the water. With lettuce, tomato and a drizzle of ranch dressing, choosing this sandwich feels less like a protesting effort and more like a lunchtime indulgence.
Zaguan Bakery and Deli
Of all the chicken sandwiches in Dallas, Zaguan's may have the best bread. It has a decent crust that's tough and blistered and stands up to warm fillings where other loaves go limp. Served with melted Swiss cheese and mayonnaise, with warm chunks of chicken breast coated in tomato sauce, Zaguan's namesake sandwich is a keeper.
The Bye-Bye Birdie is a massive chicken breast encased in a thick, greasy coat of deep-fried waffle batter. It's not my favorite chicken sandwich in Dallas, but look at the size of this thing. If you're out past Lakewood and you want a meal that will last you for days, this is the chicken sandwich for you.
