Fancy Nancy is a fun place to hang out. Maybe it’s bright color scheme or the cocktails with names like “jebroni” and “bagel bird forever.” Or maybe it’s due to the fact that you can eat cheese-covered tater tots here. Stop by for lunch or dinner and get something like a burger or some brick chicken. The duck wings are popular, although you should know that the glaze is super sweet, and they’re essentially candy. Duck-flavored candy. Get them.
