Let the fast-food chains fight over which of them has the best fast-food chicken sandwich. If you’re in the mood for something less fast food, Huntsville’s got you covered. Who’s got the city’s best chicken sandwich? It depends on what you’re looking for, but here are some options you may want to check out.
The Big Bird - Baumhower's

There are big chicken sandwiches, and then there are big chicken sandwiches. And then there’s the chicken sandwich at Baumhower’s, which moves beyond big into an almost comically large chicken sandwich, worthy of being placed in front of Fred Flintstone, the sort of chicken sandwich that Huntsville’s rockets will let you spot from space.
Baumhower’s offers multiple varieties of chicken sandwiches, but what they all have in common is that the sandwich arrives with the chicken hanging out of a normal-sized but woefully inadequate bun.
Old Faithful - Tenders

Huntsville’s own Tenders – “Where the chicken is kickin’” – isn’t where you go for frills. There’s a few things they do, and they do those few things well. The menu is less about options than it is about quantity: they have tenders, they have wings, they have salads. The question is how much do you want? If you get a tenders combo, you’re going to get a plate with some amount of tenders, slaw, Texas toast, Tenders sauce, and fries. The Tenders Sandwich takes all of those things except the fries and stacks them on top of top of each other – tenders, slaw, and sauce between two pieces of Texas toast. You can get fries on the side, but they’re optional. No frills. Just a good chicken sandwich.
