Bon Chon Chicken (32nd and 5th)

I felt compelled to start a new thread on Bon Chon chicken, since there's a prominent thread whose title is trumpeting its poor service. We've been to Bon Chon twice in the past two weeks, and their lunchtime service has been great. They do warn you that the chicken takes a little time to cook, but aside from the short wait they're attentive and friendly

We've only tried the fried chicken, but they do offer other options on their menu. The chicken itself is fried to order--you can order drumsticks, wings, or a combination of both. The two flavoring options are soy garlic and spicy. The soy garlic is a little on the sweet side, but phenomenal overall. The skin is crispy but not greasy, and the meat beneath is tender and juicy. The chicken comes with a side of pickled daikon radish cubes and a cabbage salad with a spicy (chipotle?) mayo.

I've hesitated to order their chicken for delivery, fearing that the fried skin might get soggy in transit. Has anyone tried ordering in?
