    The chicken sandwich is a must try. The beignets are also fantastic (only 3 for $1). The people there are friendly and joy to conversate with. It's New Orleans in NYC!

    Staff is superbly friendly. They give away free beignets from time to time to their customers. The beignets are amazing and cheap, chicory coffee is great, and their sandwiches even better.

    The fried chicken is to die for! Ask for it with the honey jam and your mouth will never be happier! Def get a beignet after - they are perfectly warm and small enough to not be overwhelming.

    Fried chicken on a buttermilk biscuit is the way to go here. The place is tiny & you might miss it. It's to the right of the listed address with tiny doors. Ppl are super friendly.

    It's very easy to miss this New Orleans style sandwich shop. It has a more Williamsburg vibe than a Chinatown vibe. The chicken biscuit sandwich here is a must try for NYC locals and tourists alike!

    The chicken biscuit, topped with gravy, is unmatched, the oyster (or shrimp) po’ boy is an excellent and classic option, and don’t skip the horseradish-spiked beef sandwich, either. Read more

    this place is SO underrated and how it has flown under the radar for so long blows my mind. this was the OG fried chicken sandwich in nyc -- w biscuit/gravy/grits!

    Get the classic chicken biscuit sandwich. Juicy chicken filet nestled between two warm, perfectly baked biscuits and dressed in gravy and slaw. You can literally taste the love

    Fried chicken sandwich is one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Although the chicken itself isnt great but the sandwich as a whole with the biscuit, gravy and slaw is amazing.

    If you don't eat meat, the grass sandwich is great! Tough to beat (pun originally not unintended) the goat cheese/beet combo.

    This place has a great vibe and even nicer food! the chicken and biscuit sandwich is absolutely irresistible. The bread on the Po Boys is actually shipped in from New Orleans. Try the Crawfish chips!

    Their chicken sandwich is heavenly — biscuit, gravy, fried chicken. How they make it without it being overly heavy or greasy I don't know. Sublime.

    Pick your own adventure—beef sandwich (on challah) is the delicious, neat choice, the chicken sandwich (on a biscuit with gravy) is the delicious, messy choice!

    This is one of those places where you actually have a hard time deciding what to get because you want EVERYTHING on the menu. I eventually decided on the short ribs on challah & boy, am I glad I did!

    Braised short rib with horseradish on toasted challah. Fried chicken on a buttermilk biscuit with coleslaw and gravy. A veggie muffuletta. This is not your average Boar’s Head–on–rye deli counter.

    Also, the ben-yays & coffee are a delicious, post-sandwich snack & the guys working there are super cool. After we ordered 2 sandwiches & coffees, our ben-yays were on the house! Thanks, Cheeky :)

    Shrimp and oyster po' boy and fried chicken on biscuits. These guys make some of the best sandwiches around. Don't miss the place; the sign's on the pavement.

    One of the best places on earth. The vibe is the definition of cool but without any pretentiousness. The charm is simplicity, offering 4-5 sandwiches that they absolutely knock out of the park.

    Most genuinely helpful service I've had in Manhattan and hands down, the best biscuits. Weirdly, the bathroom has a rustic, mountain outhouse feel to it (minus a water pump).

    If you're looking for a change-up--try the veggie sandwich! The only place I'd actually recommend a veggie sandwich from.

    Fried Chicken and Biscuit: Jeremiah Stone, co-owner of Contra, delights in the way fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits, slaw, and gravy come together in this messy, New Orleans-style pile.

    The white gravy on the chicken sandwich is so good. The biscuit is also crumbly goodness. They also give you a beignet with your order.

    Don’t overlook this small restaurant because you don’t want to miss their chicken sandwich. The crunchy fried chicken topped with savory gravy is perfect in the right-out-of-the-oven, buttery biscuit.

    BEST Oyster and shrimp Po'boy. Their excellent beignets pair well with the Cafe du Monde coffee that they serve. Don't leave without having beignets!

    While I have yet to try Cheeky's signature Fried Chicken biscuit, their braised beef short-rib on challah bread is a great sandwich. It isn't super filling, but it'll surely whet your palate.

    You can't go wrong with the fried chicken on buttermilk biscuit. The gravy is hot as lava but so delicious. Save room for beignets!

    The oyster po' boy ($8.50) "is fully “dressed,” which on a New Orleans sandwich denotes the addition of lettuce, tomato, mayo & pickles, and, on Orchard St., also calls for Tabasco, ketchup & lemon." Read more

    Chicken and Beef are to die for. I wish I loved the Po' Boys here (bread flown in weekly from New Orleans), but it really wasn't that filling.

    Don't be afraid to get two sandwiches if your first time. I recommend a pork and a beef. Best sandwich place in nyc.

    Don't be fooled by the size, one chicken biscuit is actually enough for a meal. Add chips or beignets and you'll be in for the itis

    Chicken sandwich is amazing. The coleslaw gives it a nice crunch. It's the size of your palm so it runs a bit small.
