I do have to say that it has been very hard to find a good fried chicken stop in the middle of NYC. But I think might have found one. At the end of a long night waiting in line to see a tree lite this place was a welcome suprise. Once you walk in to this place it gives you the feel of a lower east side dive. But don’t let the layout fool you the food here is something to write home about. OK back to the fried chicken that I ordered. The chicken was juicy with a very nice crispy outside, with a very southern after taste. A long side of my dream boat chicken I had a half of plate of any thing but healthy green beans. Trust me this place is not the healthy stop but its worth the extra 2 days at the gym. Live bait it a must stop in NYC.

For all of you who keep talking about Union Picnic need to stop. Union Picnic was a dirty place to eat. Jimmy’s is so much cleaner. Ok now down to business. The fried chicken is good but I would not say the best in Brooklyn that title still is held by Junior’s but don’t get me wrong it is good. The burgers are strange but 2 thumbs up on the effort. This for sure is a must stop by. Enjoy.

I am not one to eat out in the Trendy Parts of town, my whole thing is to find the spots that no one else has. I had to make an exception for this place. Ok I was there to see a soccer game. I will toss it out there – At first this looks like your normal I have money and I am here to meet over worked secretaires while my wife is taking care of my kids in Trenton. But I assure you it’s not, well not that I could see. Ok down to the good stuff. This was my first Run in with an Empanada, now mind I have had no others. I have to say it was like haveing sex for the second time, Yes I said second because we all no the first time sucked.  I had the Beef Empanada with a shirley temple (cute right) I will give this place a good review!!!!!! the food was amazing and at a good price, and I did not have to deal with the bullshit SOHO attitude. I would for sure go back.

Lets start off with the bad parts of this Lower East Side eater. Now that I think about there is only one. is the place is way to small and the second is the seating is way to close to each other. With that out of the way lets get to the goods. The Design of the place is amazing I think its is a work of art, you have a great feeling the second you walk in to the place. But the food is not as a good as the layout and desgin. But what can I say when my dinner and drink cost no more then $5.00 I am not really going to out this place down. This is the ideal match.com date spot, it looks high-end but with good pricing. The spot you can take several dates to and not go broke.
