While the dark wooden booths and brick walls make PJ Skidoos feel like an Irish pub, posters of scantily clad women posing on fast cars make it feel like a testosterone-infused sports bar. Ignore the tacky pictures and order half-price appetizers from 4 to 7. Fried calamari, nachos, and buffalo wings are all $3.50. Chicken tenders are perfectly browned. Potato skins--four half spuds smothered in cheddar cheese and bacon--are more than enough for two people.
Seafood lovers will savor Thursday nights, when a half pound of shrimp goes for $6.95. On Wednesdays, there's a complimentary taco bar.
