Earl Abel’s celebrates this year’s 80th anniversary with an offer to customers that will be hard to resist: their popular fried chicken will be 80 cents per piece Friday (March 15). There’s a limit of 10 pieces per order for those who order from the “to go” department.
This might be a tasty Southern staple, but it is especially a San Antonio favorite, say the owners of the family restaurant.
There’s also a little history to the fried chicken at Earl’s — early on, the chicken was pan-fried, then pressure-cooked, but the ultimate instrument became the deep-fryer. The chicken is breaded by hand, and fried in non-trans-fat oil.
Eat in, and Earl’s also gives you an anniversary deal of up to three pieces of chicken, plus mashed potatoes and choice of green beans or carrots for 80 cents apiece. That means $1.60 for a two-piece meal, and $2.40 for a three-piece meal.
“Earl Abel’s is proud to be celebrating its 80th year of serving this great community we call home. We wouldn’t be here without the support of our many long-time and loyal customers — thank you for making us a San Antonio tradition,” said Roger Arias, president of Earl Abel’s.
