Ferguson's Pub

Ferguson's Pub is the quintessential south-city neighborhood bar. Dim and smoky, it sits on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Mount Pleasant Street with a glowing Budweiser sign and metal bars over the porthole-size windows. But behind the unassuming exterior is one of the best bar menus in the city. Ferguson's is no gastropub (damn near everything is deep-fried), but it does a spectacular job with the standards. The highlight is a fried-chicken special on Wednesdays: half a bird and two sides for a mere $4.95. The pieces come glistening with grease and coated with a flaky, golden-brown breading that has the perfect salt-and-pepper ratio. Vegetarians can feast on an appetizer platter that includes jalapeño-cheddar poppers, zucchini, cauliflower, breaded mushrooms and T-ravs, while the adventurous will opt for the deep-fried beef-brain sandwich.
