    The thing to get is the fried chicken as everyone else says. It's juicy, delicious and they give you big portions. The service was great. Kid friendly place with booths and also a bar

    Fried chicken is great, but so is the salad with feta and beets. They have a rhubarb shrub right now that's pretty great too.
  • Pueblo Viejo Tequila
    Close with a flourish this spring break and enjoy a refreshing Pueblo Viejo Cocktail here at Sidecar.

    If you want to freshen up with a delicious cocktail at Sidecar, try a Paloma mixed with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.

    Order a Manhattan and throw back some oysters. I can't recommend the burger with blue cheese enough for a very enjoyable meal and overall experience.

    The buttermilk fried chicken was succulent and tasty through and through. And that sautéed kale was sweet and went well with the thick cut bacon. Make sure to also try the seasonal cobbler.

    The gumbo is good but hot hot hot. Also don't sit near the bar. There's a regular that comes in and when he sits at bar, his plumber's crack was staring at us the whole time, blech!

    Great drinks. Solid French fries. Chicken is good. But all of the other food here is a bit of a let down. We keep giving their other food another chance, but haven't had a truly great meal here yet.

    They don't hold tables, so make sure you get there ahead of time, especially if you want one of their tables in the back. The succulent fried chicken entree made it worth the wait, though...
