drinks were watered down, and food was absolutely disgusting...their saving grace was their mac and cheese. However avoid this place like the can get much better bbq meals at wildwood and blue smoke. NEVER AGAIN, save your money and go someplace else.

Can't trust menu changes

I ordered a delivery from a 2 month old menu I picked up walking by Duke's. Menu had changed-they 'forgot' to tell me. Sides had changed-substitutes were extra. Ribs were 1/2 order instead of full order. Disappointing that changes weren't explained in advance. I felt mislead. Food was fair to good but if you can't 'trust' management, do you want to do business in a city with a million great restaurants? Not me.

Love this place! I bring my kids here 2 x's per week, they love it. The staff is very attentive towards the kids. They get balloons and paper to color in. This keeps my 2 kids bust while I take down the Kentucky club sandwich. My wife always get the South West ceasar. Honestly any place that keeps the wife & kids happy is what I'm in to. I'm sure many husbands out there can relate. Take the kids after school so you beat the happy hour crowd! It can get loud towards the end of the week. Duke's is a cool place!!!

Overall, I was not expecting much from this place. But I felt compelled to write a review as they completely ran out of draft beer on a Wednesday night at 9pm. The place was 50% empty so it's not like it was St. Patrick's at McSorley's. They kind of made my dreams when the flyer on the table said there was a happy hour on Sam Seasonals to receive the news of no beer, period. Also, the french fries were cold and the table was not set even though no one was there before we arrived. The service was ok. I actually felt pity for the waitress when she told us they ran out of draft.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
