    Skip the food and go straight for the Swamp Water cocktail served up with ten straws in a literal fishbowl, then drunkenly fight your friends over who gets to keep the toy alligator that comes on top.

    You can't go wrong with brother jimmys, but this one had very limited space. The rest of my experience was good as usual though.

    Horrible. I got delivery and the north ribs were reminiscent of a Chinese buffet. I asked for extra pickles and no gravy on the potatoes, they didn't do either. The Mac and cheese was crap. YUCK!

    Lucia Palmieri · August 2, 2014
  • Raja H.

    (As of May 2014) $16 for all you can eat hot wings and rib tips w/ crappy beer for two hours

    The food was truly amazing and the staff was really nice, but most of all, those COCKTAILS incl. a crocodile toy that can be used as a shot glass, you have to improvise a little, but it's worth it!

    The menu today was SEVERELY limited (no ribs, only brisket and chicken) and they don't tell you until after you've sat there for 20 mins & ordered drinks. We paid for our drinks & left.
