Look, eating for less than $5 isn't that hard, if you're willing to settle for a crummy burger, soggy fries and a soft drink from a fast-food chain. Getting a real sit-down supper on the same budget is much harder. But it can be done every day at Niecie's. The $4.99 fried-chicken dinner here offers three pieces of dark meat, juicy under a deliciously crispy crust (the white meat dinner costs $2 extra), and served with two side dishes and a choice of roll or cornbread. The dark-meat plate is particularly good with Niecie's tasty mashed potatoes and vinegary stewed greens. Feeling rich? Spend a little more and get a slab of caramel cake or sweet-potato pie for dessert.
