King of the Cup
Nashville-style hot chicken is the name of the game in this newcomer Seminole Heights, where a Tennessee-style fire bird is served with toasted bread and marinated pickles and sliced horns ($ 10). Peeled chicken auctions receive round the clock brine, which makes the meat extra juicy. Snackers can choose the signature Nishville-style restaurant spice – warm and quiet heat – or go for the extra hot fury of Coop & # 39; s Fury if they feel bold. For a lenient addition, cooling and creamy cheese with the dessert served by Dirty Bird is a must. – Helen Freund, Food Critic

Yes, technically it is a circuit. But first place was discovered in Tampa in 2011, so we count it as our own. Plus, we can't deny a crunchy chicken sandwich from a fast food establishment. Served with a brioche bun with mayo, lettuce, tomato and grilled dill, it has a substantial slice of artificially roasted chicken, anchoring a sandwich, clearer and more flavorful than many of its fast food counterparts. Also worth exploring? Crispy chicken with chicken cheese, lettuce, potato chips and bacon.
3 Dot Dash
3 Dot Dash, located at the Jug & Bottle Dept. Bottle Shop, quickly became a favorite of Seminole Heights, serving vegan classic fast food bites like the convincing In-N-Out burger with French fries at animal-free style. The chicken sandwich, though, will make you forget about the real bird. What makes it the perfect vegan facsimile on the Southern Staple? Crispy, peppery skin that convincingly chews on "meat". And the batteries are in place: sharp dill and crispy dill Ranch slag. Take it in Tampavil hot if you like to sweat while chewing. – Steve Conterno, Times staff writer
