The Commodore Photo
The usual contingent of tattooed locals come here for the cheap beer and the kitschy cocktails (the house drink is a piña colada with an amaretto float). But for us, Stephen Tanner’s cooking is the thing, no matter how many hoops it’s necessary to jump through to get at it, including elbowing your way to the bar to place an order, starting a tab or settling up at once, then claiming some precious real estate. The fried chicken—three substantial thighs to a plate, with hot sauce, mini-biscuits, and honey butter—is hot and juicy, with a craggy crust that crackles when you chomp into it, the way a good croissant does. The hot breast sandwich, not to mention the hot fish, are as incendiary as advertised. There’s also a fully-loaded classic burger, an irresistible pimento-poblano grilled cheese, and, if you’re following doctor’s orders, some relatively dietetic options like stewed black-eyed peas and kale ladled over corn bread.
