Only chicken is Halal, as verified verbally by the owner. He said that he buys halal chicken from a halal store in Needham. The food was good. We had grilled chicken burgers and grilled chicken pizza, both were excellent.
Jazak Allah Khair
I will try to visit this place this week Insha'Allah and then write my answer.
Chicken sold at Restaurant Depot is mostly machine slaughter and does not qualify to be considered Halal for Muslim's consumption. The case of meats sold by the name of Halal at Restaurant Depot has to be verified individually.
And Allah knows best.
