Here in the 9th Ward of New Orleans there are dozens if not hundreds of places where you can purchase fried chicken combo boxes and plates. .99c for two dark meat pieces is common although now you’re seeing a few markets sell their two pieces for upwards of a $1.50.
If you want the best and don’t mind a wait, please visit Poppa’s Seafood on N. Galvez. They only cook per order and you are not allowed to phone in advance but they do have the best fried chicken I’ve found in New Orleans.
