The famous fried chicken sandwich maker known as Nash & Proper is opening another location in Elk Grove.

Nash & Proper began as a pop-up food truck across the Sacramento region before it expanded into a storefront along K Street near the Golden 1 Center. The founder is from Sacramento and created a special deep-fried boneless thigh chicken sandwich with pickles, spicy-tangy mayonnaise and cabbage-jalapeno on a butter bun.

The “Sammich” became locally famous and led to the creation of Nash & Proper, which serves up more than just a delicious and spicy chicken sandwich.

Quarter bird, half bird, tenders and jumbo wings are also on the menu. Traditional sides include crinkle cut fries, macaroni and cheese, greens, potato salad and pickled slaw.

The main attraction sandwich can be ordered at various heat levels: naked, mild, medium, hot and cluckin’ hot.

Elk Grove’s store will be located at 9080 Laguna Main Street, a central location that’s also an easy bike-ride destination. The restaurant will be Nash & and Proper’s largest, complete with outdoor patio seating and beer garden. Another shop is in north Sacramento.
