Highland Fried is the tiki version of the Somerville staple, Highland Kitchen. In truth though, only the cocktails are really tiki-themed. The menu consists primarily of fried chicken and BBQ, which no one can truly get upset about. The fried chicken is better than the fried chicken sandwich, especially because the Nashville Hot version is only available in three piece or whole bird form. A side of house pickles is also an essential order.
