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.

Duke’s is the place to come for big, tasty Texas size portions of comfort food. Start with some artichoke and spinach dip or chili cheese fries for the table to share. You will never go hungry at Duke’s. There are five different kinds of mac n cheese, four delicious types of sliders, huge chopped salads, enormous sandwiches like the Memphis BBQ pulled chicken and the smoked BBQ brisket. You also can have mouthwatering burgers and some Southern favorites such as chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits and a Southern fish fry. The kitschy and colorful décor make for some good conversation

I've been walking by this place for months and finally went for dinner. I was by myself, but didn't feel uncomfortable eating there. It happened to be Taco Tuesday and $5 Texas Tea night. 

Talk about value AND quality for your money!  The 1/2 price fish tacos were a large portion of 3 soft tacos, and the $5 drink definitely had substance! 

I will surely go back.
