Onion Rings at Joe's Farm Grill
After ordering the onion rings at Joe's Farm Grill, take your table buzzer and make a straight dash to the bathroom to wash your hands. Joe Johnston's bathroom designs are, well, just check them out if you haven't seen them. The farmhouse onion rings are consistently crazy good. The onions are tender and the herbed and seasoned panko breading stays surprisingly crunchy. There is no surprise the Food Network covered them -- they are delicious! May require two hands.
Fundido at Brat Haüs
The fundido at Brat Haüs are housemade, from the tutelage of Payton Curry, pretzels that come out of the kitchen warm, salty, dark, and textured for some serious dipping. The cheesy beer sauce and the pungent mustard are my go-to dips. Definitely requires two hands -- pull, twist, and tear apart.
Deep-fried Baby Back Ribs at Bink's Midtown
Getting messy with the deep-fried baby back ribs is my favorite hand-to-mouth experience offered at Bink's Midtown. The ribs are sold by the piece, $2 make you holla!, and plated with a sweet and hot sauce that, as expected from an artist and craftsman like Kevin Binkley, completes the dish. Requires two hands.
