This pop-up, which has found a semi-permanent home at Quality Athletics in Pioneer Square, makes some of the best fried chicken sandwiches we’ve tried lately. The chicken’s coating on the “Cookie’s Country Sando” is packed with flavor, and has a subtle crunch that lets the other elements shine - specifically the sunny sauce (which resembles Thousand Island) and perfectly-melted American cheese. And like any good fried chicken spot, Cookie’s serves some excellent sides, like mac and cheese, crispy waffle fries, and outstanding collard greens.
