It's quite easy to get carried away here and perhaps that's the point of a joint this big that serves up porcine goodness in every fashion, a-la-Deutsch. Get cross-eyed here with friends.
Surprisingly located on South Street, which has a little hair on it, it's clearly part of the gentrification of the area. We didn't need a reservation mid-week but made one anyway. Fortunately, post-over-indulgence will allow you to stumble one block to an establishment with less ambiance and cheaper cocktails. Do this after filling your boots here.
This is a one-way street and cabs are not plentiful mid-week.
Usual bible of beers. Go light. Go lager. The food will take you down.
Ate in the back area. There was a bar, dartboard-wannabes, co-ed lavatory. Do not be surprised to see a member of the opposite sex washing their hands in the same place. Sadly ladies, I can't imagine shared toilets go well with bad aim.
Service was acceptable. Clearly a new waitress. I spent about $250 here with tax and tip. Asked our server to continue to bring cocktails, beers and food until we hurt ourselves. It was highly acceptable food. Spetzle and the brussel sprouts were a little burned. Still good.
Eat the pig-tails. Immediately. Everything else is standard issue and highly delicious.
A close second to NYC's Lorelei, south of Houston St.
