Locos Grill & Pub's hearty menu tickles the tummies of patty-craving patrons with any one of its nine specialty hamburgers within the familiarity of a laid-back neighborhood setting. Diners swamped in hunger can zoom free on a blackened Bayou burger cloaked in hot sauce, armored in monterey jack, and propelled by a fan of sautéed onion ($8.99). Chorizo burgers set mouths aflame with pico de gallo and a spicy chipotle sauce ($8.99), and the El Dorado yields its treasure of bacon, egg, mayo, and cheese ($9.49). Basted with a hoisin and soy-sauce glaze, the spicy thai burger spans culture gaps, much like the first towns of the American West, on a sturdy bridge of beef ($8.99).

Reports of strange sights abound near a simple brick building just off the leafy avenues of Avery Park. Some people share stories of a no-frills grill permeated by the smell of juicy steaks and charbroiled burgers, and others tell tales of a hall resounding with music from live bands, laughter, and clinking glasses. These visitors haven’t entered a time warp—they’ve simply found Jekyll & Hyde's, a pub that leads a double life as both a purveyor of hearty eats and nightlife excitement.

Named for the famous short story by Robert Louis Stevenson, the pub celebrates the author’s little-known second career as an artisanal burger chef with specially seasoned beef patties decorated with jalapeño bacon and American cheese. Visitors settle in cozy booths of tufted brown leather to munch on Mr. H's special steak sandwiches or share baskets of chicken fingers, or they can head to the full bar to fix their eyes on the drama of games unfolding on multiple flat-screen TVs. In a separate poolroom, billiard balls clack and clatter over the green felt of nine tables, and players eye their next shots over frosty glasses of beer.

Voted the Best Place to Shoot Pool in a Montgomery Advertiser poll, Déjà Vu boasts high-end Diamond pool tables and a fully-stocked bar and kitchen. This entertainment emporium gives adults 21 and older oodles of options for late night mischief, including time-honored hand-eye coordination challenges such as darts, and rousing exercises in public embarrassment such as karaoke, a favorite of shame-gobbling shame goblins. Billiards tables host everything from friendly games to competitive league tournaments ($5 per hour), while those who delight in the thrill of slightly spirited competition can try their hand at game show-inspired events like Déjà Vu's homage to Minute to Win It, a jaw-dropping showcase of otherwise useless talents. More laid-back entertainment takes a seat at the comprehensive digital jukebox, flat-screen TVs, and full-service kitchen, offering pub favorites such as spicy hot wings ($6.75), loaded potato skins ($6.25), and the hamburger with Angus beef ($6.75). The bar serves up hard liquor and mixed drinks ($3.50–$6.75), and draft and bottled beers ($2.75–$3.25), with cut-rate happy hour prices and rotating daily specials ensuring even the shiest patron can afford to sop up enough suds to inspire cruise-director levels of friendliness.
