Order the Signature Sandwich at Butter Me Up

New breakfast and lunch spot Butter Me Up should think about changing their name to Feels Like Home, and here’s why. Feels Like Home is the name of the casual eatery’s most popular sandwich – a delectable marriage of buttermilk brined fried chicken, soft scrambled eggs, caramelized onions, pickles, and smoky cheddar. It’s simply a masterpiece on a toasty, buttery roll. Sure, there’s also smoke-cured pork, turkey sausage, and angus beef patty options, but there’s something magical about that chicken. Be sure to add a side of sweet potato tots or home fries with fresh herbs, and perhaps a fresh lemonade to wash it all down. All of the sandwiches at Butter Me Up taste especially good after a late night out, and the coffee is worthy of a trip alone. But once you smell the hot sandwiches and fried sides coming out of the kitchen, there’s hardly a chance that you’re just walking out with coffee. Find Butter Me Up on Florida Avenue in the Howard University campus area. Doors open daily at 8 a.m., and it’s a busy spot until closing time at 3 p.m.
