Pat's Bar and Grill
(6400 Oakland Avenue; 314-647-6553)

This is a pub, an Irish pub, and damn proud of it. Widely recognized as the heart of Dogtown, Pat's is where serious drinkers come to partake in the tried-and-true tradition of throwing back edgy drinks and slamming them down on the bar exuberantly. They also come to eat fried chicken. Lots and lots of fried chicken. How about half a chicken, all fried up nice like, for nine dollars? Add some potato soup and choose from a long list of appetizers. You'll wash it down with a Guinness. You're welcome.

Three Kings
(6307 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-721-3355)

The go-to bar on the Delmar Loop, Three Kings is so dedicated to maintaining a topnotch beer selection that they've rigged up a flat-screen to list and keep track of the rotating taps. Matching the beer selection is a whole slew of menu options -- the natural cut or sweet potato French fries, the fresh Prince Edward Island mussels or the "Flamethrower" burger. Recently at the Third Annual UCP Heartland Wing Ding, Three Kings Public House represented itself well, winning the "Best Traditional" and "Best Specialty" categories. The "Three Kings' Wings" are double dipped in its near-perfect signature sauce. But for the best specialty wings category, Three Kings' "Chicken & Waffles," served with bacon jam and maple syrup, steps up to declare supremacy.

Sorry last time and I mean the last time I ate at Pats, I got a 'to go" chicken dinner and it was raw and greasy. The "chefs" had forgotten to turn on the fryer and the chicken and fries went into the trash.
