This rowdy Southern eatery follows the lead of downtown brother Duke’s, serving one part pop-culture ephemera to two parts comfort food. You’ll see bright walls plastered with signed TV star’s headshots, album covers and baseball cards. Heaps of satisfying crab fritters, Cajun fried calamari, fried chicken with cream gravy, catfish po’ boys, and open-faced turkey sandwiches come on TV-dinner trays. “Big-ass drinks,” like banana-berry daiquiris served in mason jars, are at once vulgar and delicious—much like the restaurant itself.
