BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Jimmy’s Famous Seafood is throwing down in the chicken sandwich battle happening nationwide since Popeye’s released its new chicken sandwich. But what they are doing will benefit a great cause.
On Thursday, they are bringing back their Crabby Chicken sandwich.
“Ok kids, you had your fun. Get out the way,” Jimmy’s tweeted Monday.
The Baltimore seafood restaurant is offering their version of the chicken sandwich, smothered in their crab dip and served on homemade bread.
“It’s something that I came up with years ago,” Tony Minadakis, of Jimmy’s Famous Seafood, said. “Chick-fil-A inspired with the pickles on the bottom. I just wanted to put a Maryland twist on it.”
