Flanigan's Seafood Bar & Grill

Despite the kitschy mounted fish, beer koozies strung about like garland, and a jukebox that always seems to be playing the Chemical Brothers, it�s hard to hate a restaurant that serves something called a Joe�s Meal Deal: a full rack of award-winning baby-back ribs, caesar salad, choice of side, three garlic rolls, and soda, all for $18.99. Plus the place offers deals that spice up otherwise bland, weekday nights, such as Mexican Mondays, when patrons get a heaping plate of cheese-smothered loaded nachos for free with the purchase of a pitcher of beer after 10 p.m. (Wing It Wednesday is the same concept but with meaty hot wings.) Crisp curly fries accompany solid 10-ounce burgers (all $7.99) that come in varieties such as Caribbean (doused with barbecue sauce, melted cheddar cheese, and two strips of bacon) and Flanigan�s Burger (sautéed onions, mushrooms, and Swiss). If you�re looking for a leaner option, try Lean Joe�s Green Salad ($6.99) with blackened tuna (add $4.99). Desserts are large and therefore recommended for those who have eaten lightly or have bottomless pits for stomachs. The Banzai Brownie ($6.99), a warm brownie topped with vanilla ice cream, is garnished with a whole Kit Kat bar.
