Fried Chicken to go

Where is the Best Fried Chicken in the Boston area.
I need to buy 30-40 pcs so price is a bit of a consideration.

      the only thing about mrs. jones is that it's only wings iirc.

    2. Soul fire in Allston does a great job of fried chicken a little pricy 1/2 chicken around $12, maybe they will do a deal for quantity

        I dunno - I've gotten takeout fried chicken from Soul Fire twice and both times it was seriously subpar. The first time, about a year and a half ago, it was very crispy but incredibly salty (and I love salt, this was just way over the top). The second time, just a couple of weeks ago, it was bland and greasy. almost the opposite of my first visit.

        Maybe they can produce good chicken, but if so I've yet to see it.

          Some fried chicken wings (typical southern-fried, not buffalo style) that I tried there a month or so ago were perfect - shatteringly crisp, well seasoned, and juicy. I ate them in-house, so perhaps they don't travel well, or perhaps they're just wildly inconsistent.

          The saucy wings I had on their monday all-you-can-eat night, however, were disgraceful.

      2. Coast Cafe in Cambridge is quite good. Might be on the pricier side, though for a larger order.... give them a call!

        1. I'm a fan of Lenny's Bakery on Blue Hill Ave. I think they only have thighs and drumsticks but at $1.25 per piece, they can;t be beat. You would probably need to pre-order that big an order.
