really REALLY bad chicken – wow all i can say is there is a boston restaurant review show with a couple of brothers who rave about how great this place is, i really belive the the only places that get good reviews from them are the places thay pay them(LOL). THE CHICKEN WAS DREADFULL!!! underseasoned and way way over cooked! and just grade d scrawny little unrecognisable chicken parts(lol) the breast was smaller than a normal chicken thigh, the thigh was some odd shaped flat thing.my wife made the mistake of getting extra crispy! she said thats not extra crispy, thats cement!! it was really gross, too bad because the waffles are pretty good.
Fried Chicken - Ehhhh, It's ok. – I recently went to the Hen House looking for good fried chicken. Sadly, I was pretty disappointed. I ordered a 10 piece of fried chicken (no sides), The chicken had a nice crunch. Very crispy (probably double dipped). The chicken itself was cooked well. Very juicy. That being said, don't expect any spice flavor. It is a very bland fried chicken. This is not a "stand alone" fried chicken. This chicken is about sauces (buffalo, honey, etc.). I tried a few of their sauces, but nothing really wowed me. I see where the Hen House is trying to go with there food...and it looks exciting. However, at this time, the fried chicken needs to go back to the drawing board for some re-work.
Best Wings in Boston – I've gone here twice and still haven't had their signature dish: waffles and wings. But I've had both their boneless and their regular buffalo wings -- they're awesome. The boneless tenders are HUGE. My wife and I ordered 12, thinking we could eat 5 or 6 each. I think we had 3 or 4 before being full. Today we ordered 24 regular wings and 6 boneless for a party of 5 -- and still have plenty left. The bone-in wings are giant too. Really plump, juicy and the sauce is perfect. We like it with medium heat, so we order the Mild. It has the perfect spice mixed with tanginess.
Side note: Their menu is pretty extensive and includes lots of southern specialties. We've ordered a sandwich here too, and it wasn't great. Stick with their wings. Also, make sure to ask for celery and blue cheese at pick-up since it can be forgotten. And although the location isn't ideal (right near Liquorland and South Bay Plaza), the inside is pretty cool and trendy -- considering it's a wing place on Mass Ave.
