Lucy's Fried Chicken on Burnet

paternite | Sep 25, 201311:49 AM

Went for a late lunch on Sunday. It was a great day to sit out on the open patio which was pretty packed. I've only had their chicken at last year's ACL so was looking forward to eating some in our hood.

The fried chicken livers were delivered first and they were very snacky.
A perfect chipotle sauce on the side. The basket of chicken was next and was pretty good but a veritable salt bomb. Seriously, we were drinking water for the next several hours. In search of something relatively healthy, we ordered the jicima salad - which sadly, turned out to be inedible. It was basically smoked red cabbage, nary a strand of jicama in site, languishing in a thin, flavorless mayo glaze. They were nice enough to take it off the bill.

Overall, the chicken was tender, not overly greasy, but not nearly filling enough for 10.00. And the salt was overwhelming. I realize frying a chicken breast is tough but man, I'd like a little more meat than what a leg, thigh and back can provide.
