We don't know how Nick Badovinus - the man behind Off-Site Kitchen - pulls it off, but he's created another ingenious food menu. The Derby sandwich is a delicious mess of shaved pit ham, smoked cheddar pimento cheese, and a hot pepper and bacon relish that you could lick off your fingers. The interior, designed and built by Badovinus, is also knockout. A pool table sits in the center of the main room, and the brick walls are tastefully covered with vintage beer signs and framed American flags. Led Zepplin and The Disco Biscuits blast from the digital jukebox. The soft lighting creates a cozy and comfy vibe, and once you are seated you will want to stay.
