Brother Jimmy's Union Square

Yee-haw! If all a guy wants is meat, ball games and blasting tunes, this string of faux-thentic Carolina honky-tonks can scratch the itch. Platters of tasty fried chicken, pulled pork and ribs (either spice-crusted or saucy) hit tables with a steady thud. Specials abound, including Saturday afternoon 1/2 price hot wings and the Sunday Rib Feast—all you can eat and drink in two hours for $27.95.

Located a block away from Union Square, Brother Jimmy's is a decent place to get some Southern cooking at Manhattan prices.  The wings have always been above average and continue to be so.  Pulled pork sliders were tasty and corn bread is always delicious.  They have a good sampling of beer, but they are costly.  The ambiance is a bunch of southern knick knacks hanging on the walls and wooden tables and floors.  Good place to gather to watch sports.  They used to provide discounts if you have a Southern license, alas I never received a discount.

As a southern girl, this place feels like college.  The crowd can certainly be douchey, but it's fun. Their margaritas are great, there are games to play, and it's a big enough space that it doesn't feel too packed, even when there is a sport game on TV.  The food is great too.  The brisket nachos are my favorite.
