Abdullah The Butcher

Whatever you do, don’t let the post-apocalyptic food court feel of this joint deter you. The dreary Mall West End spot owned by the ’70s-’80s wrestling legend is in fact open. See, there’s a guy over at a table now, enjoying his turkey wings and candied yams. And hey, look behind the counter, a worker just loaded more baked chicken onto the line. For $8.99, you can get a vegetable plate with three solid sides piled so high you feel like you’re getting the family hook-up. For $14.99, make it a meat and two. And listen, we don’t care how drab the interior, we’ll forever love a weighty container of tender pulled chicken over rice with black-eyed peas.
