You can also grab some tasty pub fare here, such as fried chicken sandwiches and Texas chili. When locals want to take back a few cold ones in a laid-back setting where they can relax on the patio with their canine companion, they head to Little Woodrow's. If you’re a fan of craft cocktails, pub fare, and board games, you must visit Vigilante Gastropub & Games for your next night out with friends.
