A Texas-style neighborhood spot

Taking its name from the size of your ass after you eat there two separate rooms that comprise it, Double Wide's a TX-inspired bar & kitchen from a team that's lived in the EVill for 10yrs, but has been "going out there even longer", experience that helped to shape the industrial farmhouse vibe thrown off by corrugated metal wrapping the bar and walls, window boxes filled with filament bulbs, a high fence ringing their outdoor patio, and a garage door hanging above the tables where you'll be parked. Drinks are appropriately no-nonsense: 10 taps pour the likes of Wolaver's, Abita Amber, and Post Road Pumpkin, non-drafts include Strongbow tallboys and Highlife, and there's an entire liquor rack dedicated entirely to bourbons, single malt Scotches, and tequilas, which go into house 'tails like Sweet Tea Bourbon Lemonade w/ ginger beer & mint, and the fresh lime/cherry-infused rum Route 66, getting you many more kicks than a major artery for migrants during the Dust Bowl. Feeding's accomplished via down-home small plates that turn four-star-quality ingredients into bison meat Frito pies, sloppy joes, pulled pork sliders, aged-cheddar-or-gorg-topped applewood bacon potato skins, and, of course, buffalo chicken strips, frequently feasted on by opposing defenses when Travis Henry was on the Bills. Down the road there'll be Sunday brunches loaded with chicken-fried steaks and biscuits & gravy, Tuesday Trivia nights, and SEC Saturdays, a great place for fans to get their party on once their tails no longer fit through the gate.
