PJ Skiddos

March 2004 Dirt Cheap Eats

On weekdays from 11 to 7, $2 glasses of wine are served in long-stemmed glasses. House drafts are $1.90.

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.
