In what we’re sure is a surprise to no one, we love fried chicken! Here are some places to celebrate National Fried Chicken Day!  Enjoy!

Hunter’s Kitchen + Bar

Hunter’s features many fried chicken items on their menu – including popcorn chicken and the Hot and Messy Fried Chicken Sandwich – but a standout is their family style Fried Chicken Dinner – full or half-bird served with sides like mash + gravy and buttered corn!

The Broadway

Enjoy The Broadway’s Crispy Fried Sandwich features, bacon, Buffalo-Ranch Mayo and lettuce and tomato.


Have you tried the Chicken and Waffle Bites at Gather? These bad boys are life changing, all the deliciousness of fried chicken and waffles but done of the hassle of cutlery.  Each bite is a perfect ratio of fried chicken, waffle, and sausage gravy.

Lincoln Tavern


If you want to spice things up, try Publico‘s spicy garlic fried chicken wings with fried thai chilis, sesame seeds, side of blue cheese dressing and PubliCo hot sauce

Coming at you like a dark horse!  Did you think Doughboy was just breakfast?  No way! Doughboy Donuts + Deli has a sneaky good dinner menu and their broasted chicken is delicious. What is broasted, you asked? Well, it’s cooked in a Broaster Co. high-pressure cooker, and according to their menu “is more juicy, tender, and flavorful than conventional fried chicken.” Give it a try!

Village Pizza and Grill

Have you heard of the legend of The Fish Pier’s chicken sauce?  The Fish Pier might be gone, but their chicken sauce lives on at Village Pizza and Grill.  

The Smoke Shop

Enjoy a heapin helpin of fried chicken with fermented honey hot sauce and choice of two delicious sides like pimento mac and cheese and cornbread at The Smoke Shop. 


Ok, so you probably don’t think Sullivan’s when you think National Fried Chicken Day, but you should!  Their fried chicken sandwich is delicious enough on its own, but also pairs beautifully with French fries…and onion rings…and a hot dog.

Moonshine 152

If you’ve had Moonshine’s Boston’s Best Fried Chicken Wing then you know why they made this list.  Served with Poblano ranch dressing! Perfection!

You’re definitely craving fried chicken right now, so either you’re welcome or we’re sorry!

    Terrible article. Best fried chicken by far is at Moonshine 152. Fall off the bone good. Buttermilk good. By the way… Gather is in the Seaport District. If you consider that Southie you really shouldn’t be writing for this site.

      Don’t be a jerk. Nobody likes a jerk. And Seaport is Southie whether you like it or not.

        You tell him Mo these newbies no nothing about their adopted town and by the way the No Name actually states their address is South Boston on the website.

          At least we “know” how to use the correct spelling of a word. “No” worries though, I absolutely consider Legal Sea Foods as a South Boston restaurant, Babbo has the best pizza in Southie, and The Grand is the hottest new club in Southie. What’s the zip code over there anyway???

            You should like the four zip codes in Dorchester know they can only have one. And tell all the Southie resident stickers in the Seaport they no longer qualify for residential spots. Good thing you know everything and are kind enough to share your knowledge.

          • Maureen Dahill July 10, 2018 at 1:11 pm

            What are you talking about? It is South Boston. Does our resident sticker work there? Yes, it does. Until the city changes it, it’s South Boston.

        Maureen, you are so right, it IS SOUTH BOSTON and some people are trying to take that away, we won’t let them.

    Just looked at Doughboy’s menu. I never knew they had meals there! I definitely want to give them a try!
