Chris VR Jun 6, 2002 06:56 PM

Saw the recommendation for Chef Lee's in Dorchester... so who else is a contender?

    I still like the fried chicken breast w/ skin on mashed and cole slaw at Johnny's. Easy to eat and $9.95.

        Are you referring to that "Johnny's?"
        I've eaten there a handful of times, but never had their fried chicken.

        Mass Ave, under Dolphin Seafood, a little bit south of Harvard Sq.

          Yep, Johnny's Luncheonette, also in Newton Center. Haven't eaten there much but really liked the fried chicken and just had some good cereal crusted french toast a couple weeks ago.

            have you tried the "Glorified Fried Chicken" at Bob the Chef's near the corner of Columbus and Mass Ave. Awesome Chichen and you must try thr Sweet Potato Pie!

              I had their chicken (and Sw Pot. pie) at a benefit there last fall (and was on TV too!) and thought it was good, but the ease of eating the chicken breast is what I like about Johnny's. And at $9.95 for that and great mashed pot., it's a relative bargain.

                fairly tasty but the last two times I've eaten there the chicken has been somewhat dry.
