VENTURE a LITTLE OFF CARSON STREET for SOME GREAT FOOD and DRINK!
Birmingham Bridge Tavern is a pub that features bar food with a flair. They are known for wings, burgers, and sandwiches. It is places like this where if you veer a little bit off the main road, you are rewarded with great food at affordable prices.
Wings – Birmingham Bridge Tavern is known for their wings. Wing flavors include Death Metal, Bourbon BBQ, Thai Fire, Spicy Garlic, Spicy Garlic Parm, Garlic Parm, BBQ, Golden BBQ, GoldenBoy, Buffalo, Jerk, Eric Jr., Eric the Red, and Hot Metal.
Appetizers – Some that caught my eye were the Philly Cheesesteak Fries which consist of fresh-cut fries with sautéed steak, onions, peppers and smothered in cheese sauce. The Cheese Blast Platter has Cheese Sticks, Mac & Cheese Wedges, and Jalapeno Cheddar Bites served together with homemade marinara and ranch for dipping. Most people love provolone/mozzarella sticks!
Burgers and house specialties – There are a number of specialty burgers, one that caught my attention is the Bunk Bed Burger which is a half-pound steak burger with two pierogies, sauteed onions and choice of cheese. It is served on two slices of Texas toast. The sauteed or deep fried pierogies are cooked in garlic butter or deep fried and tossed with any wing flavor your wish.

My Final Take
As many know, Carson Street is the main artery that runs through the Southside. A lot of people when they visit the South Side do not venture off it. However, if you do, you can find hidden gems such as the Birmingham Bridge Tavern. Give it a try!
