The Bird, San Francisco, 3/10/18

The Bird is a large place that specializes in a spicy fried chicken sandwich. It has a cute fox with a sandwich in it’s mouth as the logo.  It is a small menu that also includes fries and egg biscuit (though I saw no one with this option).  It is busy but the line moves quickly and seats turnover rapidly.  It was mostly filled with young people but it was a friendly crowd with no one staying long.  Beverages included a large selection of beers, which they give you a ‘cozy’ to hold it in, and other bottled/canned drinks.  It was like a fast food place where you go to the counter to order and get a number they call when your food is ready.   They also serve apple fritters which are usually just available in the morning but they still had some when we arrived for an early lunch.

We tried both the regular fries and loaded ones (with sour cream, onions and cheese).  The loaded ones used cheap cheese and got soggy quickly because of the toppings.  The regular fries had little potato taste just a bit of crisp.

The sandwich was moist and tasty and you can get it spicy, which I did and it was.

The apple fritters were sweet and not too greasy with noticeable chunks of apple but not as good as what I can get at many local donut shops.  The sandwich is the only thing to get here in my opinion.
