Three of us visited for supper last night. The staff were really friendly & clearly proud of the provenance of their ingredients.

The buffalo wings with hot sauce were the best I've found outside of America (I've been eating a lot of wings around London to try and find a good buffalo sauce!). The Po Boy with shrimp was delicious and not greasy. Can also highly recommend the dirty fries.

Good selections of drinks including local beers.

So great to have a decent independent in Kingston offering something different to the usual chains.

Called into Poor Boys with my wife for lunch. Restaurant was quiet which suited us. Staff were friendly and service was good. The food was very good and we were glad that we choose the smaller potion of what we ordered as it was more than enough.
I have only marked them as very good and not excellent as we were disappointed that they had no White wine on offer due to a delivery problem. They also had a problem with there card machine and we had to pay cash.

Great find in kingston. So many chains that when somewhere independent, original and as good as this opens up it deserves success. Food was great and well sourced - free range corn fed chicken, Park brewery beers etc. Nice personal service as well. Looking forward to another visit. Check out the dirty fries and the wings!
