    The deliciously prepared chicken sandwich is one of the best meals I've ever had — especially without the mayo and honey but with added pickles and their "K-BBQ" sauce. The best sauce I've ever had.

    Has nearly 50 styles of Bourbon to choose from. Add that to 36 drafts, 80 bottled beers & comfort food classics like tequila, chile, & beer marinated wings with lime, & this just might be Man Heaven. Read more

    Awesome lunch spot for the area. Personal favorite is the pato loco, a burrito with duck and pork belly. My coworkers ALWAYS get the friggin chicken sammy though. Also. Tots with siracha.
