About the Hampton Roads Chicken Sandwich Challenge

Who makes the best chicken sandwich in Hampton Roads?


Four Chefs will compete to find out and you can have a seat to the showdown! Local Hampton Roads Celebrities will make up the panel of judges and attendees will get to cast their votes.

What started as a friendly online competition between Chick-fil-A and Popeyes fans sparked a nationwide frenzy of who sold the BEST Chicken Sandwich. But the question remains, who has the BEST Chicken Sandwich in Hampton Roads?


Elizabeth Jones of See The Light Be The Light Foundation will be our host for the evening, which means the competiton will be far more than bragging rights and a trophy, proceeds from ticket sales will go to support Out of The Ash, See The Light, Be The Light's program supporting children of domestic violence.
