The Burn Brae Dinner Theater is the first area buffet house to do ''Driving Miss Daisy,'' the off-Broadway play that made history as a movie. It starred Jessica Tandy as the Atlanta matron who agreed, grudgingly, to allow herself to be driven about town by a chauffeur.
The Burn Brae production is a very respectable one. The pace may be slow, but it is very even, and at two hours and 10 minutes (that includes the usual intermission), the evening is a very manageable, pleasant one.
The company adds to the running time with delayed scene changes, but the time is well spent. During those lulls, we are treated to songs of the periods covered by the play, one that begins in 1948 and ends in 1973. Among the titles are ''The Ballad of Davy Crockett,'' ''Rag Mop,'' ''Santa Baby,'' ''Ain't That A Shame?'' and ''Unchained Melody.''
