Fried chicken biscuit sandwich


If southern hospitality had a taste, I’m sure this would be it! Cheeky sandwiches has literally been on my Yelp bookmark list for at least 2 years and I finally got around to trying it out 😋

Chicken Cheeky Sandwich= Two of my favorite things together

= Fried chicken + biscuit= deliciousness.

Tender crispy boneless fried chicken smothered in gravy, topped with coleslaw in between a sumptuous buttermilk biscuit. $6.50

I could eat that buttermilk biscuit by itself with a smear of jam, it was sooo pillowy and soft. I could’ve done without the coleslaw. It tasted different from typical coleslaw, didn’t have a vinegary kick but it did help cut the taste of fried chicken so it tasted healthier LOL. Not very salty at all. Would love to try this with hot sauce next time. Filling but not very heavy. It was probably the size of a small burger. I did not fall into a food coma afterwards which is always a plus. It was a little hard to eat because it was stacked a little high. Open wide!

Beignets fresh from the fryer

The owner hooked it up with a few fresh beignets after I finished the sandwich so woohoo! I was so full that I was only able to eat one of the bite sized beignets lolo. They were amazinggggg. Reminded me of a super fresh, hot donut dusted with powdered sugar.

On a side note, they have a cute little outhouse style bathroom  that looks like a shed from the outside LOL. Had to pop a squat to pee though. See how there’s no lever to flush? You’ll see a rope, pull it to flush.

To wake up laughing

Satin shimmered by in blues, reds and pinks

Their eyes were hidden by white masquerade masks

Perched atop majestic white stallions in various stages of standing and sitting

Reminiscent of expert circus performers

Yet the aura of something super human, was felt

A strange wave of soothing warmth pulsed in the air 

Looking forward with a laser focus

They looked at nothing and no one but the road ahead.

-Woken by my own laughter as sunlight streamed through the curtains. My friends would not be dressed up in sailor moon costumes riding on horses in the countryside in real life 😂. Ridiculous. Okay maybe they would be in costume just not on horses too LOL. It was like a procession. The sailor scouts also don’t wear masks. Only sailor moon’s boyfriend does!

If you’ve woken up with tears spilling down your cheeks, remember the dream that made you wake up laughing.
