They'll let you awkwardly stand up eating your AMAZING fried chicken on the pinball machine after getting kicked out of a table reserved for a Monday night DJ, unaware there's an outdoor area 🙄
Dive bar & fried chicken? Doesn't make sense. But somehow, it works beautifully. Seat yourself (you may have to wait a bit) & order @ the bar. They'll bring it to you. The honey butter is MAGIC.
I had fish tacos. Surprisingly good. Good salsas.... a green and a chipotle, decent slaw, fish was nice and really thin crispy batter, not a heavy floury batter. Six or so beers on tap. Totally decent
You'd never expect such a divey dive bar to have such amazing food... The hot fish sandwich is perfectly crispy, fish hanging off the sides of the bun, perfectly spicy, and piping hot. Chkn is oily.
This is not your average dive bar. This southern style restaurant offers up some of the best burgers and fried chicken in the city. Leave a trust rating to help spread the word: http://bit.ly/1mOq5L4
Three-thigh fried-chicken plate, with biscuits and hot sauce; the hot breast sandwich; the equally incendiary hot fish. There’s also a classic burger, an irresistible pimento-poblano grilled cheese.
You may have to be a bit aggressive to snag a table; but it's absolutely worth it. All of the food is beyond incredible, and they have fun old-timey cocktails like a sloe gin fizz!
The cheeseburger's patty is seared & slipped onto a Martin's potato roll with lettuce sliced to ribbons, thick pickle chips, chopped white onion, bound with mayonnaise. It's reliably delicious!
I should hate this place (looks like a '70s basement), but instead it's my favorite spot in Williamsburg. The fried chicken is the star, and the honey butter will leave you licking your fingers.
Get the fried chicken. Just get it. It is incredibly delicious, crispy, & juicy, and enough for 2 people to share, easy. The biscuits with honey butter that come with it are killer, too. Get it.
For the fried chicken lover, Chef Stephen Tanner’s kitchen serves up three crispy mammoth thighs and honey butter biscuits with the Egg and Pies ‘n’ Thighs, a dish you’re sure to love.
Seriously this place rocks. Order fried chicken and beer at the bar. The chicken is easily big enough for 2 to share - or to give away a couple of pieces and make friends. DO IT!
I never see the same people working. Everyone working is always the greatest, which is more than I can say for the obnoxious customers like myself. A great place and I love it.
Great place to go when your rum loving sailor friend is suddenly killed in a freak accident and you need a dank corner to drink yourself stupid. Try the fried chicken and the Piña Coldas!
The fried chicken is solid - one of the best in the city. Comes with mini melty biscuits and if you want to feel a bit better about yourself, the kale salad is quite good.
Cheap, good food and drinks BUT tables are kind of dirty and sticky. Its VERY hard to get a table. $20 card minimum for drinks. I like this place a lot when I can find a seat!
Best fried chicken I have ever eaten. Now everywhere else I get fried chicken is a disappointment. Also, Cyclone pinball machine on free play!
Love this place! The burger is delicious and well worth it for $7. The nachos are kind of weird w "queso" instead of melted cheese.
The $4 plate of fries is more than enough for 3 people. The $7 cheeseburger is perfect. Happy hour 2 for 1 beers/well drinks from 4-7pm make a trip even more worthwhile.
The frozen drinks are amazing, but don't expect to get them quickly if it's busy. Not because the service is bad, but because the drinks require some work. Therefore, don't forget to tip well.
I recommend ending your night here by ordering their namesake drink, the commodore. Its so ridiculous in appearance and alcoholic content that you're guaranteed to leave with a smile
The fried chicken/biscuits are enough for two hungry or three snackie people and delicious as hell. The burger is not to be missed, wit' cheese!, and the fries are perfect.
Hot breast sanga was spot on. Nachos were quality too and solid drinks. Outdoor patio is chill. Only downside is trying to order food at a very hectic bar.
A grimy bar with the best Micheladas you’ve ever had. Fried chicken and rolls come with 3 kinds of honey butter to help you slide into a booze-fueled, deep-fried dream.
Alright, this is some absurdly crispy fried chicken. Also there might be crack in the nachos. Nab a booth in the front and hunker down for an awesome drunk meal.
$3 Schaefer's Beer and $7 grilled cheese?! Child, please... Best deal I've come across NYC to slum it. For $5 more, upgrade to 'adult' cheese sandwich (w/ peppers) plus tomato basil soup. #MomSlapGood
Wow the fried chicken biscuit was OUT of this world amazing. With the grits!!! Also tried the burger and pork hash.
Of course the hot breast is great, but the very unconventional green salad with pickles and cheddar is easily overlooked and an excellent starter.
Kalen Kaminski and Astrid Chastka—the duo behind dye-happy line Upstate—swear by the fried chicken and frozen drinks. To read more about these two, head on over to ofakind.com.
after 10 minutes go by and you still haven't placed your drink order, cut your losses and head to any other neighborhood option - you'll be glad you did!
I've had the burger at least 5 times, can't say that about anywhere else. I truly think it it's a great burger & the best $7 burger in NYC.
Looks and acts like a dive bar, with cheap, strong drinks. However, don’t over look the food, especially their Fried Chicken.
best fried chicken in the neighborhood. order from the bar, seat yourself. grab a table on the patio out back on a soon to be fall night
Sick amazing insane food! The fried chicken was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside and the green salad was light and refreshing.
The jukebox is non-functional but respect that they pipe the PA through its speakers. Also, the boat drink is strong and cheap and recommended.
While the planters punch may look a bit silly, it is very potent. 2 of those and you'll feel no pain. And all the chicken dishes are incredible.
The fried chicken was probably the best I've ever had. The biscuits and honey butter are heavenly. I already can't wait to come back!
Your day will improve as soon as your cross the threshold of this establishment. Now, get a table and order the following: hot breast sando + a million boat drinks + nachos for the table. 🏆
Get. The. Nachos. Best in Williamsburg. UFO goes best with the slightly spicy treat. Also, perfect date if you're on a budget.
Sip a million Commodores and eat the ridiculously good burger, fried chicken, and nachos. This place is so annoyingly hipster but the food never disappoints.
