Known for their smash burgers, Rudy also needs to be applauded for their excellent fried chicken sammy. The Valentino, topped with coleslaw, signature Valentino sauce and hot sauce, is all the carby, drippy, greasy goodness you could ever ask for.

Where BOB Coffee Bar used to be, The Davenport has newly taken up shop. And one of their most impressive menu items so far is the Bang Bang. This cheeseburger is topped with a hefty piece of fried chicken, making it the ultimate double-whammy to enjoy with a weekend brew.

Address: 440 Christie Street
