Bossman Reports: Fried Chicken Cart
Got another great tip from the commenter who goes by the name of “Bossman”:
You want to talk about crazy ass shit? There’s always been this Halal cart on 55th and Mad (Southwest corner) that had a fryer setup. Convenient when the urge strikes for fries along with your street meat. Aside from that there’s nothing that stands out about the place. I used to frequest it because they’ll throw your gyro on a hero and I always found that held up better than pita. The guys are real nice and if I found myself getting lunch at 2:45 (like today) I’ll hit it up.
So today I see a sign saying Fried Chicken w/ fries (4 Pieces) $6.00. It’s all your fault Zach- prior to reading ML I would’ve ran for the hills, nowadays it just raises a bunch of questions:
Fried chicken truck, yes. But cart? Has Zach done that? How could they? Pre-cooked and just warmed through?
…and finally “how could I not?”
Anyway, what I got was 2 tenders, a wing, a drumette, and a thigh and fries all freshly fried (obviously they’re better at dishing the food than counting it). Of course, it’s not your Grandma’s chicken but it was pretty damn good for what it was (especially as a conduit for hot sauce). What will they think of next?

Yummy! I think I speak for everyone when I say thank you sir. Fried chicken from a cart! How could I not we all not. Got a lunch you want to share? Feel free to email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
