    Sandwich is ah'ight but for the price I'd rather have 2 chick-fil-a sandos. Don't get me wrong I will tear up one of these again but I ain't waiting in some hour long line for it. Fuku pay me.

    Koreano is good, but stick with the original. It's on the menu for a reason.

    Only one thing to get, the chicken sandwich has a beautiful, mild, long dry heat.

    Just OK. Overrated & overhyped. Could def do w/o the bun..nothing special. Chicken had the right amt of crisp & juiciness. Also, you can't call it a spicy chicken sandwich when it's not spicy AT ALL.

    The music is so loud! Solid chicken sandwich, but not sure it was worthy of all the hype. Eat it at the park.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Good deal for the $, but if the line is over 30 min, just get a sandwich at Schnitz.

    They don't have a bathroom here but they will let you use the bathroom at Momofuku Noodle Bar a few doors down.

    Small and uncomfortable venue. One sandwich to be had. Food was great but I have a feeling I won't be back.

    only explanation for high rating = falling for hype. tastebuds were not involved. p.s. think about whether you want to feel very ill after eating here before you decide to take the plunge

    Had HIGH expectations for this. Just ok. Pricey & huge chicken sandwich that under delivers in taste. I'd rather 2 C-F-A sammiches.
