fabcleaner.pngQuick early dinner review.

My friend and I are working off a list of unreviewed Hoboken Restaurants, and Sullivan’s was in the area. We said why not?

It was the late-afternoon, and the place was empty, as expected. The owner was cleaning up a bit, and it smelled strongly like “Fabuloso” cleaner. While not the best smell, many things could have been much worse. So kudos to him for doing the twice-yearly cleaning (as he put it).

Suprisingly, for a standard watering hole/restaurant, Sullivan’s has very decent food.

We started with the Texas Chicken Fingers, which were nice and crispy and had a decent buffalo taste.

My dining companion ordered the veggie sandwich, since she’s on a health kick. Se said it was rather well made and the ingredients were fresh and flavorful. Again, surprising from a corner bar.

I chose the chicken sandwich, which had bacon and swiss cheese on it, along with some fries. The sandwich was filling, I couldn’t finish it. It was prepared well and didn’t have any unexpected strange tastes, nor was it undercooked and a health hazard. The fries were above average.

Since the bad tap soda at Texas Arizona last month, we’ve been a bit weary ordering anything from a tap. I thought the soda was no big deal, but my friend felt it tasted pretty gross. It may have been off a bit, but I was thirsty and it sufficed. She got another glass and it was a little better. Maybe it was tap cleaning day (after we left).

Overall, Sullivan’s seems to be a reliable place to eat, which is a nice backup option considering some of the other crappy places in Hoboken.

What are your thoughts? Have you had good/bad experiences with the food or service at Sullivan’s?
