It’s probably half the size of their East Village location, but I think the food here is even better. It’s a lot cozier too, but be prepared to WAIT. Well, we went with a party of six, and probably waited a good hour before we got seated. Factor in how cold it is outside (considering the size of the place, you’re gonna wait outside), and an hour feels way longer. It’s worth it though, especially when you’re in the mood for some feel-good, yummy food.
Starting with the buffalo wings, which you HAVE to order if you can. I’m not normally the biggest fan of messy wings, but the chicken practically fell off the bones on its own…it was THAT tender.
The soup and smokey mac and cheese didn’t disappoint (and once again, the mac and cheese has a really smokey taste so if you’re not into that, you might not like this dish). Also, one thing we missed but I would definitely bee-line for next time is corn on the cob (with lime, cumin and cotija cheese). The people next to us ordered it, and it looked divine. The only exception, at least in this instance, were the burgers– I thought Westville East’s was a little juicier than the ones we had here. I had mine again with cheddar — it was still good enough, just not the best I’ve had.
We ended the meal with two chocolate souffles a la mode, one with vanilla ice cream, the other with mint. I’d suggest the vanilla, unless you’re into the toothpastey-taste thing. Probably the most surprising thing was the bill after our three-course meal…we didn’t get any drinks besides some pop, and I don’t think we paid more than $20 each. Another reason this place is one of my favorites.
Oh and, I GUESS I’ll add this picture of the buffalo wings + Sacko’s hands. He really wanted it in the post. He’s creepy like that:
