Super fry

Babe's chicken is as good as you'll get 'round these parts

Our waitress hauled out platters of hot chicken, along with bowls of soft mashed potatoes and thick white gravy stiffer than the spuds, bowls of cut corn sweetened and creamed, and baskets of biscuits. You can eat it all and ask for more of anything you want, except you have to pay for more chicken. But chances are you won't ask for more, because a couple of huge pieces of this rich, thick-crusted, juicy chicken will finish you.

For "dessert": tall, tender buttermilk biscuits. The butter soaks right in, and then you carefully drizzle them with honey--pure unfiltered gold from Waxahachie--or, if you are truly of the south with a capital "S," sorghum. (It tastes a bit like light molasses, and Babe imports it from Mississippi.) Some of us drizzle the fried chicken with honey--returning to the sweet-and-meat combination of tastes that was popular back when King Henri IV of France first expressed a wish for a chicken in every peasant's pot on Sunday.

Democracy is wonderful--at Babe's, every day but Monday, you can have chicken and all for only $5.99. Such a deal. Kids eat for less money, but they have to share your chicken.

Babe's Chicken Dinner, 1456 Belt Line Road, Suite 171, Garland, 496-1041. Open Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Open Sunday 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
