I usually buy the Chicken Special at Brachs, used to be $10, now $11 for 1 bbq chicken and one side. Not a bad deal (better in Boro Park but hey, for the 5 towns not bad). Gourmet Glatt charges similar but gives no side, just the chicken for $10+. Today I went to Brachs and did not need chicken since I had left over grilled chicken. Finished shopping and my daughter tells me she still want the diet cole slaw so I ordered it. At the checkout line I noticed that the Cole Slaw was priced at over $6! Thinking there was an err I went back to the deli department to correct the price to which he said the price was correct and that is why he asked me are you sure you don't the chicken? I'm no fool, I told him, take off the $6 price from the cole slaw and I'll take the chicken special.
So here we have it. $6 for 1 lb container of cole slaw or add another $5 for a nice hot fully prepared large bbq chicken. Truly a special (or are they overcharging for the side dishes).
