Fodor's Review

Neon, wood, and Formica set the scene at this massive roadhouse in the Theater District. Start with stuffed jalapeños or—especially—unbelievably succulent barbecued chicken wings. Then, what the hell: go for the "Pig Out"—a rack of pork ribs, Texas hot links, pulled pork, rack of lamb, chicken, and, of course, more. It's that kind of place. There are also five domestic microbrews on tap and a good list of top beers from around the world. The place is absolutely mobbed pretheater, so if that's when you're going, arrive by 6 pm or you'll miss your curtain.
