Take out fried chicken and heroes

Looking for both for a party, Bellmore-Merick area. Any suggestions?

    1. In CT, I've found that the best fried chicken anywhere is at Stew Leonards in Norwalk. I know they have a Stew's in Farmingdale, LI. I haven't had theirs, but if its the same as here in CT, its great!

        No Stew Leonards in Farmingdale. Was suppose to be one but only ended up with a wine store.

          Ah, I sit corrected. I though it was a full Stew's.

      2. If you're just looking for hero by the foot, Ciriello's Fine Foods in the Willow Wood shopping center in Wantagh has good hero at a pretty good price. The bread is good, and not as crusty as the typical hero bread, which makes it a little easier to eat those thin slices without making a mess.

        1. Wish there was a Stew's. They have exactly what I want!

          1. There was supposed to be a Stew's. The land was cleared and then litigation began. Something to do with building near the airport. I once e-mailed them and they responded that they don't give up, they keep up the fight. They said that it took 10 years to resolve all the legal issues to build one of the newer locations...
