Mastication Monologues on Aug 15, 2014
For all of those thrill seekers/chili-heads out there, definitely try the XXX wing challenge at Jake Melnicks. If spicy food isnít for you, they also have a great variety of delicious burgers (including an eight pound burger challenge), barbecue dishes with in-house smoked meats, hearty soups, savory sandwiches, and satisfying salads you can chow down on.

WARNING: If you think jalapenos are spicy or if this (see 0:40 and on)happens to you when eating dry chili flakes or do not have a stomach for spicy food in general, do not try this eating challenge!!

Go somewhere else where it doesn't cost $10 for a 3% beer.

I would never recommend going to this establishment for a bloody Mary. It was the worst one I have ever had. The service was not the greatest either. It would not hurt to follow up with your customers

El t√≠pico bar de colonia, tardan un poco en asignarte mesa aunque tengan disponibles pero dentro los meseros se aplican, lugar para pedir nachos, alitas, cerveza y escuchar buena m√ļsica.
by Rafael G.
Nachos: Cheddar cheese, green onions, sour cream, jalapenos, guacamole, salsa & chili (diningin.com)

Las alitas como entrada est√†n de poca madre!!
by Carlos C.
Only eat here if you want to eat really overcooked, dry meat loaded with too much BBQ sauce to cover up the cat food like taste. Also, if you want to deal with dumb waitresses.

Get the Sloppy Pig! It's pulled pork, brisket & smoked chicken in Jake's famous BBQ sauce, topped with cheddar cheese & crispy onions. For beer, I had the Ridgeway IPA. They rotate taps though.
by Evan O.

Best wings in the city!
Excellent selection of hard to find & exclusive beers. The BBQ nachos & wings are some of the best that this bar-fly has had.
by Jason T.
The wings are plump and juicy. No wimpy shriveled wings like some places.
by ISC C.
The XXX is the best! Cool it down with a pear cider.
by ISC C.

These aren't chicken wings, they're angel wings that arrived this morning on the truck from heaven
by James M.
Grilled portabella reuben is amazing! And so are the buffalo fries!

Only visited here once, but had the portabello mushroom reuben. I would do it again. And drink some beer while you're at it, but be safe. Somebody loves you.
by Jason B.

This place serves alcohol. So be careful if you're a horse because the trot home can be troublesome.
