Tuckers is a new restaurant that moved into the warehouse district this week. It's not really new to the city but it's new to the location (on the corner of St. Joseph and Magazine). It's in the building that used to be Polynesian Joes. I guess Poly Joe's is gone for good now. We had always talked about going there. I guess we finally did.

There's not much to say about the food at Tuckers. You go there to get a beer and burger or sandwich. The bar is cool though. It's set up with 6 cubby holes that hold all the liquor. None of the bartenders will ever have to cross in front of each other to do their thing. All of the spots are lit up and look really cool.

A funny thing about the place is that it still has the volleyball court that poly joe's had. There used to be a league that patrons would play in during the summer. The funny part is that they still do. We watched a bunch of guys walk through the place right to the court. They bring their beer in bags! Our waitress said that they haven't tried to stop them.

Another interesting thing is that there are two women's restrooms and only one men's. Can "ladies night" be far away?

I have no doubt that Tuckers will be a hit. It's a hip little place with a lot of attractive people. I don't care. I'm just happy that there is a burger/sandwich joint so close to us now.
