IT'S BEEN open since 1962, but not much has changed at Price’s Chicken Coop in South End. Outside, Camden Road has become the heart of the neighborhood. Inside, guests still line up throughout the day, cash in hand, to get a cardboard box of the city’s best fried chicken, fries, hushpuppies, cole slaw, and a roll.
