AVL-MarchMadness-Feature Image

With the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments just around the corner, we’re joining the fun of bracket competitions with a face-off of our own.

We asked you to share who makes your favorite fried chicken sandwich in the 828, and now — thanks to you + the help of a random generator — we have the official lineup for our bracket.

How it works

Beginning today, we will host several voting rounds within our newsletters and social channels to determine Asheville’s best fried chicken sandwich. Who moves on is up to you. Vote for your favorites, and the sandwich maker with more votes moves on. Simple as that. We’ll go until we have a champion, which will be announced in our Mon., March 21 newsletter. You will be able to vote once per round.

How to participate

Vote for the fried chicken sandwich you’d like to see advance to round two using this poll. You can vote for all four spots or as little as one. Once we count all the votes, we’ll share an updated bracket and new poll in an upcoming newsletter.
