After a long day of walking around, or if you just arrived into Penn Station, and are in need of some sustenance, Brother Jimmy’s, near the back side of Penn Station is the place for some good southern food. It's a recent explosive trend upon Manhattan with its great food and fun ambience, just made its residency on 8th Avenue. After a rough day back from traveling on a bus, my girlfriend and I were in desperate need of food and Brother Jimmy’s was the perfect thing for us. Upon entering, we were ushered up to the second floor and given a seat underneath the fans and in front of the TV playing the soccer matches. There is nothing to me more enjoyable than a good plate of southern food and Brother Jimmy’s fits that bill. I ordered the ribs and chicken combo (giving me a little taste of each) and it came with two awesome southern style sides and corn bread. Now, I expected I little taster’s portion of each and two small sides; what I got was enough to feed three people. I took what I couldn’t finish home with me and it was my lunch for the following two days. The service was a bit lacking but the food definitely makes up more than any service related inefficiency. The ambiance is just too unique that it's hard not to have a good time here. Also, throughout the week, there are different happy-hour specials, like all-you-can-eat ribs, therefore make sure to keep your eyes open.
Try out Brother Jimmy’s, there are a couple of different locations all around the city, so finding one shouldn’t be too difficult. But this one is great and the food was awesome. I absolutely love southern-style food and this took the cake.
