Large quantities of fried chicken
Whenever I needed a lot of fried chicken (parties, Mardi Gras, etc.), I used to go to the now-defunct Chicken Box on Claiborne. It was ridiculously cheap (albeit somewhat sketchy but I don't care about that), convenient to get to, fairly tasty, and I liked being able to tell people that if I had bought 1,000 pieces, I could have gotten a free wedding license. Since it's closed, I'm looking for a reasonably priced replacement.
Of course there's always Popeye's but it's more expensive (I mean not in the grand scheme of things but more expensive than Chicken Box). I went to a party recently where they had chicken from (I think) McHardy's. Any ideas for good places for large quantities of party-chicken?
Funny you should ask- I was walking my dog the other day down Bayou Rd (towards Broad) and stumbled upon a corner store that smelled great...there was a line waiting for chicken. I checked out the menu posted outside and it was all manner of big chicken packages (100 wings/$25). Considering it's fairly off the beaten path and the line was huge I thought it might be a hidden gem. I'm going to check it out this week and will report back. It may have been called Cajun Kitchen or something similar. It was near the CocoHut
