Unbelievable marinated chicken meal -cheap eats at Bartley's...

I almost hesitate to write this for fear that Mr. and Mrs. Bartley (1246 Mass. Ave, Harvard Sq., Cambridge- hrs mon-sat 11 am -9 pm, CLOSED SUNDAYS!!!) will quickly raise the prices on this sublime meal. Also, interestingly the new take-out menu left off the chicken dishes but they do indeed still exist- okay, for $8.25 you get half a roasted marinated chicken- some of the best, most tender, most "chickeny" tasting chicken I've ever had in my life- succulent, loveley and seemingly lovingly spiced marinade mixture- perfectly cooked chicken- simply exactly what it should be and more- w/ 2 sides to choose among: mashed potato, corn, fresh carrots, herb stuffing, best butternut squash pureed, baked beans, french fries, pasta salad, coleslaw, tabouli (which is perhaps, surprisingly very good at Bartley's)- onion rings or sweet potato fries are .99 extra. The take-out menu I have says comes with corn bread but it seems that dinner roll w/ butter is what actually comes with- you can probably ask for corn bread but the roll is wonderful- classic dinner roll- soft, sweet and yeasty tasting and often still warm. For the winter I always get w/ the herbed stuffing and butternut squash and then for summer I switch to coleslaw and sweet potato fries. My other one always gets tabouli and onion rings w/ his order. All their sides are great (that I've tried atleast) and they do take-out of this meal very well. A wonderful chicken treat at Bartley's burger and salad cottage (I love their full name)...
