Not the place to come on a diet... trust us. But if you love the idea of spicy, crazy-hot buffalo wings and a monster ice cold beer while you watch way too much sports on way too many TV's... well this is your place, and the Mother Pluckers keep it fun. If "fire in the hole" hot is not your thing, they have a huge selection of sauces to try out along with excellent hamburgers and outstanding salads if your friends are feeling wimpy. But wings are the specialty here. Pluckers is locally grown, started by a couple UT grads. The original Pluckers is still on Rio Grande west of campus. This is pretty much a fried paradise, fried pickles and addictive fried twinkies can round out your meal if you're feeling extra adventurous.

Eat 25 "Fire in the Hole" wings and get on the Wall of Flame. We dare ya.

You can always find some kind of sports on the myriad of TV's here and they serve food at the bar.
