After praising J.R. Crickets' chicken wings, karaoke shindigs, and live music, Metromix went on to declare the late-night-dining destination a place where "[m]odern chic and good times meet." J.R. Crickets' culinary crew lightly fries or grills seafood, slathers baby back ribs in sauce, and carefully calibrates wings to three levels of spiciness. Diners can opt to take feasts to-go or kick back in the eatery, where TVs and live DJs forge an atmosphere as high-spirited as a haunted mountaintop.
The Ultimate Bar & Grill’s chefs break free from the shackles of pub-grub conventions with a revamped menu of bar starters and full-grown entrees.

Cloak Vienna beef dogs in an ensemble of Chicago-style duds, including mustard, relish, veggies, celery salt, and Prohibition-era fedoras ($6.99). Twinkle-toed clusters of snow crab legs quickstep through Cajun seasonings ($19.99), and chicken ($13.99), steak ($14.99), or shrimp ($15.99) cascade across the teriyaki stir-fry's mound of peppers, onions, and garlic. Taste buds plunge into the drink menu's wines, suds, and creative cocktails, such as the vodka-laced Electric Lemonade.

Chefs top the all-beef hot dogs with combinations such as BBQ sauce, bacon, and cheddar, or scoops of baked mac and cheese. These pair with the unique flavors of house cocktails, which range from sweet to sour.
