Of all the flightless birds, chickens remain America’s favorite kind to eat, narrowly beating out penguins, kiwis, and Larry Bird. Make bird the word with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a fried chicken dinner for three, valid for dine-in or carryout at Cluck-U Chicken in Somerville. Dinners include:
- 15 buffalo wings (a $11.49 value)
- Six pieces of fried chicken with three biscuits (an $8.49 value)
- Three side dishes (a $1.99 value each)
The poultrygeists at Cluck-U glorify grilled, fried, and buffaloed bird with a Southern-style bill of fare devoted to the chicken. Diners debate dressings for buffalo wings, choosing from 15 different flavors such as Cluckster's hot, mustard barbecue, and Fiery 911 sauce, which requires a signed waiver and back-up set of taste buds. Six pieces of fried-to-order light meat, dark meat, or a combination of each come standard or, like an amicable bee, bearing a satchel of honey. Three buttermilk biscuits buttress main courses, and seven sides vie to rub elbows with entrees, prompting mac 'n' cheese to plump its profile with four types of dairy and mashed potatoes to reinforce its gravy boat with cannons.
