Like the Chick Fil A #1? Cool, go here instead. Both of Bobwhite's locations are an excellent stop for solid southern cooking. Fried chicken, mac 'n' cheese, pie, etc. abound on the exceedingly unhealthy menu. 

The only reason I can't give it a 5 is that the bun on the fried chicken sandwich could really be better, but the Buffalo option let's you put on toppings as you so choose and it's great. 

On the whole, Bobwhite is a great place for a quick carry out or a casual sit down. The beer options are pretty solid, and if you're so able I recommend capitalizing upon their happy hour special--$5 for a chicken sandwich and a beer from 3-5.

I'm always in search of amazing fried chicken and this is definitely some of the best I've found in the city.  I love the location in Alphabet City too!  The prices are very reasonable.  I recommend checking it out!

unbelievable find. knew i was coming in to the city yesterday with my mom and sister-in-law and found an online review of this place as being pretty good AND cheap. yeah, it was under $50 for three of us. mom and i had the chicken sandwich with a mustard sauce on it and it was amazing. sister-in-law got herself a chicken dinner and even ate the coleslaw (which she normally doesn't like). i also got me some fried okra, which i could probably live on for the rest of my life. 

go out of your way and eat here. it's a rrrrrreally tiny restaurant so if you have to wait, do it. the waitsatff is sweet and friendly, too (so make sure you tip well!)
