Restaurant Review: Boxcar Betty’s

In West Ashley, just outside of historic downtown Charleston, you can find the delicious purveyor of chicken sandwiches, Boxcar Betty’s. Rivaling the chicken sandwiches of even David Chang’s Fuku in Manhattan, Boxcar Betty’s makes their sandwiches with only the highest quality chicken and locally sourced ingredients. The look is ultra-retro and down-to-earth. The counter service… Continue reading Restaurant Review: Boxcar Betty’s
