Between the eclectic atmosphere, happy people and great food, this place is worth the drive and the wait. The alligator cheesecake app is a must and the fried chicken is great. It is crispy and not over-spiced. That way you can feel the crunch and...More

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate

fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife
and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s
