Henry T's Bar & Grill
By far the best wing sauce anywhere! I concur with kaw7987, I wish they have nutritional information online or at the restaurant, I am watching my health a little closer and it would be nice to know. Also, a true gluten free section would be nice. I don't know how the kitchen is set up but the flower from the chicken breading seems to get into everything. Oh, and bring back those awesome hoodies to purchase. Mine is starting to wear out.100% cotton if at all possible. Not too much to ask, right? :D
Other than that, keep on doing what you do, Henry T's. Delicious!
You just can't find a better wing anywhere. Some may argue and that is your right, but I would argue this one till the cows come home. Before I moved to Lawrence, I used to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings nearly every week and even did so when I first moved to town. A friend who had been living here awhile turned me on to this place. It is now five years later after moving here and I can probably count on one hand how many times since then that I have gone back to BWWs. The appetizer portions are tremendous, and although their service is almost always hit and miss, I will remain loyal to this place based on their wings alone although I am told their burgers are quite good. (Suggestion - order their Pepper Jack Nachos, too. Also unrivaled in Lawrence).
I visited Henry T's on a weeknight around midnight, looking to grab a beer or two. As I walked inside, there was a large sign that said "Seat Yourself", so I did just that and grabbed a table in the large seating area near the door. When I sat down, there was a bartender behind the bar and one or two waitresses standing and talking next to the bar (one was standing next to an entrance to what appeared to be the restrooms). I sat down, stared at the bar and the waitresses, and waited for one of them to walk over to take my drink order. No such luck. I sat there for 10+ minutes, all while the bartender and the waitresses talked to people (themselves and patrons sitting at the bar). I don't think they ever saw me. Finally I got tired of waiting, so I got up and left. They might have seen me when I walked out. I don't know. What I do know is, I'm never going here again.
Love half price burger night and gusto special! The burgers are always cooked perfectly and so good! We recently tried the jalapeno rav's and wasn't sure if I'd like them or not and they were good. I would get them again.
We have been customer for many years, but tonight may be the last time. The food has always been good, the bar service very slow. Tonight was a whole 'other issue. The wait staff tried its best but management provided no assistance or support. I felt sorry for our server who apologized profusely without management support. First, one of our group was told the soup was one thing, but an entirely different soup was delivered to the table, a type he could not eat. He asked for an alternative choice, not as an exchange but as an alternate choice. The manager sent her back with the comment that it was not an exchange and it would take 15 minutes to prepare - basically saying 'no'. In frustration we said, forget it. Then one of our group suddenly suffered an apparent allergic reaction, possibly to something in the food. We asked the server for a copy of the recipe in case we needed to go to the hospital. The manager grudgingly, without comment and no apparent concern, provided a print out. Fortunately, she was OK. Never once did the manager ask if she was OK. On leaving when we tried to talk to the manager, urging a more customer friendly and concerned approach, his reaction was to become very defensive and threaten to call the police. NO one was unruly, loud, or troublesome. We simply wanted to explain our dissatisfaction and we basically were run off under threat of "calling the police." Tell me why I would ever again go back? Not likely.
We have a big family so we choose restaurants with the best specials and only eat what is on specials. We love Henry T's Sunday taco special. We can take our whole family there without breaking our budget.
However, we decided to try something different so we went for wing night. When we arrived we asked our server how the wings came, if we needed to order in groups of six or what? She explained that she was new and didn't know. She went to ask and came back and told us that they came in half and whole orders, like the menu says. We thanked her and told her that we thought it might be different since it was the special. She continued to take our orders and serve our food and everything was fine until the check came. We were shocked to see our total was 3 times what we thought it would be. The wings were full priced because we ordered before 6:00. When we asked another server, she said that the server is supposed to let us know that the special hadn't started yet. That only made us feel worse.
We are on a tight budget and that blew it for the rest of the month, actually cut into our grocery budget. I guess we won't be returning for tacos for a while.
