    As far as BBQ sports bars in the city goes, this does a great job. Brisket and pulled pork won't be the best you've ever had, but it's certainly not the worst. Plates are big, sharing is enough!

    For the gluttonous, try out the chain's unlimited ribs deals, offered on Sundays. Try out any flavor of pork ribs or get a combination plate that includes all three. Read more

    They have Cheerwine here. If you are from the South, you'll get why this rocks. If not, you must taste it's cherry goodness for yourself.

    Great place definitely use the free pbr or marg from four square. Be careful if Ariel is your waitress. She screwed my friend and cousin over on the bill, charging $230 for a $30 meal

    Basically a pricey 90s college bar. Fine insofar as that goes, so a nice nostalgic place to watch games. But avoid the Mac n cheese: uses Velveeta.

    Don't drop money on the floor. We dropped a dollar bill and didn't pick it up right away and the bouncer snatched it. Otherwise, try the pickle back shot. True southern colors.

    Beware, we were served rotted fish here. (To add insult, the manager insisted on charging us) Hopefully, no one gets sick. The rest, dried chicken, pork, corp beer list, no hot sauce. Avoid.

    The frickles are delish but the portion is ridiculously small. Pickles cost like 50 cents and there is literally only one pickle cut up in this $8 dish.
