    The full fried chicken supper, with salad and jumbo biscuit, is so affordable that you can share a side or two and still get that overflowing bowl of pecan pie bread pudding for dessert. Read more

    The buffalo chicken sandwich should run for president! Amazing! Homemade ranch for the ranch lovers, not your normal frozen fries they're nice and crispy. Mac & cheese is authentic & really good!

    Bobwhite serves wedge-style French fries alongside classic Southern comfort food dishes. The cut means these fries are bigger and chewier than bistro varieties. Read more

    I am a diehard fried chicken addict and always searching for the perfect dish. Think I found it at Bobwhite! Chicken is seasoned perfectly and crisp and damn the biscuits are good!

    Southern classics worth a try are the pork chop sandwich (with meat from Bev Eggleston's EcoFriendly Foods) and grilled pimento cheese on Orwasher's bread, which will leave you licking your fingers. Read more

    As usual, one of the best, if not the best, fried chicken sandwiches anywhere. Add pimento cheese and all is right with the world. The banana pudding and pecan bread pudding was great too.

    You really can't go wrong with the fried chicken supper on its own, but don't forget to add the mac and cheese as a side. You'll thank us later.

    Worth going out of the way for this place. Fried chicken is light succulent and tasty. Mac and cheese and biscuit as sides are must haves. Homemade sauces pack a punch :)

    Great juicy fried chicken! They also have fried catfish. Can't go wrong with the chicken and biscuit sandwich either. They offer a unique happy hour special that consists of a beer and a thigh. Yum!

    Fried chicken and biscuits are great and the mac & cheese is incredible! Great prices too. Added bonus, they actually serve sweet tea which is few and far between in NY! Would go again & again.

    Happy hour here is solid: 3-7pm, beer&chicken $6, biscuit w/chicken $3.50. Happy hour is the whole place, not just @the bar.

    You’re in for a special treat at this fried chicken joint. The birds are brined in sweet tea and exude a hint of sugar beneath every crunchy bite. Pair it up with a biscuit and some butter pickles!

    might be my favorite thing in all of ABC: Chicken biscuit!!! It may not be on menu but order it! Be sure to; put honey on one side and hot sauce on the other. You're welcome.

    Get the “Chicken Little” supper for 3 fried chicken pieces on the bone, plus biscuit, and a side. Could definitely be the best fried chicken in the city.

    While the experience is decidedly more down-home than downtown, the expert, pressure-fried chicken at the tiny Bobwhite Lunch and Supper Counter might be the best in the city. Read more

    Stupid good. The chicken sandwiches are all $7.09-$7.86 or something. Can’t sit inside anymore but who could complain about seein the cars go nyoom on Ave C and like twelve guys asking you for money

    Best fried chicken in NYC by far, possibly the best in the country north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Young guys running the place are efficient & friendly. An absolute must-visit Alphabet City staple.

    Really really good Mac n cheese and biscuits (order an extra one and thank me later). The catfish was nicely done too. The fried chicken was juicy but lacked flavor. 4/5

    Bobwhite's family-recipe butterflied pork chop's attentively seared, then topped with mayo and chow chow, a mustardy relish. Once you go here, you won't want pork chops from anywhere else. Read more

    The buffalo chicken sandwich is indisputably the best fried chicken sandwich I have ever eaten. The mac & cheese is the correct side option.

    My favorite lunch spot! The buffalo chicken sandwich is great, but the regular is my old standby. Mac and cheese is a must and the staff is the perfect mix of attentive and laid back. Great music too.

    Got the chicken sandwich with fries and a beer for $20 all in, which is pretty good by NYC standards. Most importantly, I was full but would have gladly had another sandwich - it was pretty damn good!

    Get an extra order of the ever-so-cheesy Mac and cheese. Delicious. The catfish is good, but why would you pass up the fried chicken?

    The fried chicken sandwich is great. Add the pimento cheese. Or if you are really a pro, get two of the mini fried chicken biscuits with pimento cheese and hot honey.

    The best fried chicken I've had in New York. The chicken is always perfectly seasoned with crispy skin. I love it paired with the hot sauce and honey! I just wish they served mashed potatoes.

    Get the platter with fried chicken, Mac and cheese, and biscuit and you won't regret it! Very reasonably priced for moist, delicious Southern food. Will definitely be returning.

    Take it from a Southerner, this is legit fried chicken. If it's busy, get on the list & grab a beer next door at Alphabet Beer Co, your stomach will be thankful... Not so much your cardiologist though

    The chicken biscuit is a Wednesday night special, but if you ask your waitress nicely, you might be able to get it other nights. It's incredible.

    Sweet-tea-brined and pressure-fried, the moist, craggy-crusted chicken is the main event at this modest redoubt, and it comes with a tasty buttermilk biscuit and some well-intentioned mixed greens.

    The bread is perfectly crunchy and the cheese is melted perfectly around the collard greens. Mac and cheese is indulgent and creamy, so much so that you might not be able to handle eating both at once Read more

    The fried chicken & their pork chop are the stars but you cannot go wrong with anything on their menu. Take a friend or two so you can order a bunch to share.

    One of the best value meals in NYC period. Some of the most delicious fried chicken and mac and cheese in the Northeast. Cozy place though not too cramped.

    buffalo chicken sandwich is the perfect amount of crunchy with a tangy ranch dressing + zesty slaw. Cool place to sit at the bar and grab a quick feed.

    Can't beat it for the price and quality. In an ideal world, the biscuits would be denser, but the quality of the chicken is very high, making for less breading than your fat ass may desire.

    Amazing fried chicken! Even their simple egg cheese on biscuit sandwiches are out of this world. Friendly service. AC is always blasting so a little chilly
