What others say: “At Highland Fried, patrons can pick and choose which parts of the bird they’d like to eat — the menu offers individual wings, drumsticks, thighs, and breasts — or they can just opt to eat a whole bird. On the barbecue end, Highland Fried is offering classics such as pulled pork, brisket, burnt ends, smoked chicken, ribs, and sausage.” — Terrence B. Doyle, Eater Boston
