We live in the Sunshine State, where the weather is always prime and we're constantly thinking about improving our bikini bods before we hit up a gorgeous beach or spring — but sometimes we just wanna EAT. If you're looking for a new spot to hit up on cheat day, Better Byrd in St. Pete has some sinfully delicious items on their menu.
Better Byrd specializes in everything chicken - chicken on buns & in bowls and in wraps & tacos too. If you really want to indulge your cravings get your chicken buttermilk fried (you'll thank us later; their fry oil is also gluten free) or you can try to keep it a little healthier by getting it char-grilled instead.
Probably the most drool-inducing thing on their lunch and dinner menu is the jalapeño bacon mac n cheese topped chicken sandwich they call the 'Mac n Byrd'.
It usually comes on a potato roll, but you can sub for a wrap or make it extra cheesy with a jalapeño cheddar biscuit, which they recently added to their bun lineup and it's lookin' like some crumbly and cheesy southern goodness.
No sandwich is complete without a tasty side, and their side menu has some extra unique options like the Truffle Garlic Parm or Bacon Sriracha & Queso smothered Fries. If you love hot stuff, they even have Nashville Hot Fries just for you. We'll take 1 of everything, please!
Other options on the menu include tacos, wings, strawberry peach froze, and other alcoholic beverages. They also have succulent shakes for those with a sweet tooth — which you can add rum to for only $2 and turn it into a boozy milkshake (you're welcome)!
If you're the kind of person who likes an indulgent brunch, they even have a weekend brunch menu that is to die for. Glazed donut and chicken breakfast sammy anyone?
They even thought about those who eat vegan or gluten-free. Any sandwich can be subbed with crispy cauliflower bites or the vegan impossible burger and any bun can be subbed for a wholewheat gluten-free wrap. Even the shakes can be subbed with vegan ice cream. We're scheduling our cheat day — WE DESERVE IT!
