We love Boxcar Betty's! The Boxcar is it for me, with pimiento theses, pickles and their chipotle mayo. You can build your own as my husband does adding whatever you wish to the cage free chicken. Fries are great, and where else can I get...a side of fried green tomato? Yummy! Also appreciate that all utensils, cups, straws, etc, are biodegradable. Great friendly service, too.More

We are not new the south, but I have never tasted such a great chicken sandwich in my life. So many great choices to personalize your sandwich. The sweet potato fries were crisply fried with with a brown sugar coating.

First time at Boxcar Betty's but certainly not the last. Since it was our first time here we asked for recommendations they told us to go with the most popular choice the boxcar. We got our drinks but the ice machine was broken, but the...drinks were still drinkable. We sat down our table number was 6 the server brought us our food and good lord we were not prepared for the amazing experience this sandwich gave us! Haha literally we said chick fil a who? There are 3 locations in the low country- please start building more. We will be coming back to this location to try out other food items but the sandwich was beyond our expectations. The coleslaw on the chicken sandwich with pimiento sauce was just brilliant! I opted for no pickles and the sandwich was still tasteful. They have the option sweet fries or regular old school fries I highly suggest the regular fries they are crunchy and full of flavor. The set up inside is very much set into the feel of 1950's dinner vibe very simple, classic and clean. It's a must try for everyone. Don't change what is working Boxcar Betty's.More

Ok I finally made it here and it was the best chicken sandwich of all! Hands down! I also tried the sweet potato fries and they were good, but for me, they just didn't click.

Perfectly cooked chicken sandwiches with a perfect combination of toppings. If it your first time, definitely recommend going with the Boxcar. It might sound weird, but the flavor combination is incredible. Fried pickles and the fried green tomatoes are great too.

Ordered their namesake sandwich the Boxcar and was very happy. Got it the way it is featured with peach cole slaw, a little pimento cheese, spicy mayo and pickles. Served hot in a few minutes with just the right amount of breading and a extra...large filet of chicken. Had to try their fresh cut fries too . Like the chicken they were served hot too with a subtle tasty garlic seasoning that was spot on. They also have sweet potato fries too. All in all a great spot to enjoy a great chicken sandwich either fried or grilled if you are in the Summerville area... I’ll definitely be back when I can...More

OMG this place has the best chicken anywhere. In this low country area chicken is king if you measure by all of the chicken restaurants around. In my quest to try them all, if I stopped with Boxcar Betty's I'd be happy for life. The...absolute best. Crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. A great flavor that melts in your mouth. I cannot make better fried chicken at home and I can cook. Every one suggested we try this place and we finally did. Glad we made it. The Boxcar sandwich is outstanding and the tenders are perfect. Pricing is good for what you get and the service was great for a fast/casual place. High quality for sure. Food served hot and delicious. Sorry I did not try this place sooner.More

The definition of a greasy spoon, this was a pleasant surprise! Lots of good reviews so we had to try it. They made Marci's grilled chicken sandwich gluten-free without a bun, and I had the signature sandwich. We were full and happy!

Traveling and needed a quick lunch. Reviews said this quick and amazing, they did not lie! Had their most common lunch plus pecan pie in a cup for dessert. SO GOOD!!! Downside was sweet potato fries had additional sugar so were too sweet for me...but fried pickles more then made up for them with their deliciousness!More
