Russell's Pic II - Hammonton, NJ



I have driven past this place many times on Rt. 30 but never have had time to stop by for some food. Today, I made it my mission to eat lunch at Russell's. Every "Pic " that I have ever eaten at has always had amazing wings, so I was hoping this place did not let me down. I would consider this bar, a "locals" kinda establishment. A few regulars were here and everyone knew each other , besides me , so I stood out like a sore thumb. The bar had a musty smell to it, reminded me of my fraternity house after a night of partying. There was no music playing and the TV was playing reruns of Dennis the Menace. The atmosphere was kinda off, but I wasn't there to meet my future wife and get crazy , I was there for the wings! I placed my order of food and grabbed a drink. I was pleased because they had sugar free Red Bulls, always a plus in my book. Just like I had hoped, the Pic wings did not let me down. The flavors that Russell's offer is Mild, Spicy, Hot , Extra Hot and INFERNO. Now just like other Pic wings, you get the leg and the wing attached. So one order of 6 , is basically 12. ( They call it a Super Wing) Price was $6 dollars ( or 50 cents a wing). Great price for great tasting wings! On Monday and Thursday nights they offer "double wings for the price of 1". Sounds like a steal to me. Another cool feature is that they serve their wings in a frying pan, which was very unique. (see picture) I met the bartender and introduced myself. We talked about wings and a little history of the bar. She told me this Pic was separate from the other "Pic-A-Lilli's" but from the same family. At Russell's, they took pride in developing a slightly sweeter wing sauce then the other places. Another cool fact, she claims on Super Bowl XXXIX (the last time the Eagles went to the big game on Feb 6 2005) that the Pic sold about 13,000 wings on that day. Now when you consider both the leg and wing are attached, thats really 26,000 wings!!!! Holy Hot Sauce Batman! Overall the place got the job done. I wouldn't recommend it for a first date to impress a lady, but I would recommend it if your trying to find some good wings.

Byrne's Tavern - Port Richmond (Philadelphia) PA

Anthony and I just had lunch at Byrne's Tavern in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia, PA. First off, I'd like to say how easy this place is to get to. It's just off of I95. You can actually see it from the highway. It has a huge crab on the side of the brick building with a gigantic shamrock behind it. "Welcome to friendly Port Richmond" is a very inviting slogan. This tavern has a great Irish feel to it, when you get to it, there is plenty of parking which is a huge plus for a place in the city. Once you walk in, you're greeted by the friendly staff. I haven't been there in about 10 months, and only 3 times or so before that, and the waitress' Rox both remembered my name, asked me about my son, and even asked me how things were going in the town that i live in. That alone is amazing! But we don't write reviews on customer service haha. Still amazing though. When we sat down, we were given our menus, which is like 3 pages long. Typical bar …
