The brainchild of a moonlighting firefighter, Triple Deuces fosters the tight camaraderie of a real flame-wrestling unit with an inviting ambience and a varied menu of bites and beverages. The fire-engine-red walls hung with firefighting memorabilia and soot-stained suits thematically match Triple Deuces' lineup of fire starters, such as The Freelancer chicken wings in four increasingly incendiary flavors ($10.95) and Nozzleman fried calamari ($8.95). Louder stomach snarls can be squelched with a Backdraft BLT wrap ($7.95) or a traditional Fireman's Badge of thick bologna topped with cheese, tomato, and onion sided with sweet-potato fries ($5.95). Novelty miniature adults, meanwhile, can sharpen their baby teeth on a Junior Firefighter of either spaghetti, hot dogs, grilled cheese, or chicken fingers ($4.95).
