The gustatory gurus at The Chicken Joint Grill and Bar compile a menu overflowing with hearty burgers and chicken breaded for wings, sculpted into tenders, and deep-fried for southern platters. Garlic-parmesan, general tso’s, or eight other varieties of sauce await the pub's signature wings ($8.49/dozen), and the cooks surpass even their usual heaping serving sizes Monday–Thursday with all-you-can-eat orders of wings ($13.99). Exposed-brick walls and white pillars look on as patrons lounge on leather couches and salivate over southern fried chicken ($6.49/four pieces), golden-brown chicken chunks ($6.99–$7.99/half portion) and tender, meaty ribs. Meanwhile, a jukebox sings serenades, cues click and tiny football teams scrimmage atop a billiards table, and eight flat-screen televisions flicker overhead, illuminating chicken tenders ($7.99/five pieces) as they dip into honey-mustard sauce. On Friday nights, karaoke challenges guests to see who can swallow a microphone after they’ve finished their wings and tenders.

But these comforting classics must vie for diners' attention with a few more exotic offerings, such as sancocho soup studded with Caribbean vegetables and meats or mofongo, a garlicky concoction of mashed and fried plantains and pork cracklings. Either way guests' palates guide them, they're sure to leave feeling as warm and full as the dryer on your once-annual laundry day.
