Breaded Buffalo Chicken Burger

There is this little diner inside the Wells Fargo building near my office. It looks shady and offers typical American fare like chicken tenders, burgers, chicken burgers, chicken salad sandwiches, frito pies all made by an old little korean lady. Her little Korean husband takes the order and shouts it to her even though she is less than 5 feet away. Don't underestimate her though, she has the memory like an elephant. There could be 20 people in line and she will remember each order no matter how high-maintenance it is. On Monday, I got the #6 - a chicken burger sandwich, fries, and bottle of water for a whopping $3.99. It's a steal and it tastes mighty delicious. It also inspired me to make my own breaded chicken sandwich at home and with my latest obsession with buffalo sauce, it's a harmonious combination in my tummy.
