The Jughead's call themselves the un-restaurant.
Why? I really don't know.
Do I care? No, not at all.
So, er, Why am I writing this review?
Well, that's because this is one hell of a place to hang out with friends, especially during their week-long HAPPY HOURS! And also because I think you guys need to know about it and head to any of the Jughead's near you soon.
At this un-restaurant, you can order beer by the mug, by the pitcher and even by the tower. Happy hours simply mean you get a double of whatever you ordered.
The food is decent, I'd recommend the Mix sauce (White+Red) pasta for which they have a veg as well as a non-veg (chicken) version. Its creamy, cheesy, saucy and simply awesome comfort food. A must try. It may be off the menu, but ask your waiter, and he'll help you out.
The burgers are nice too, and so are the Delux Nachos (served with re-fried beans and salsa on top). They serve sizzlers too, which are very filling. The Paneer shaslik sizzler always hits the spot.
The starters include the usual's such as potato wedges (which are crisp), garlic bread (Dry, hard and not good), Corn-cheese-mushroom balls (very interesting and nice). Unfortunately for some reason they just cant seem to make decent french fries, which always come out soggy & drooping.
Also, the cocktails lack punch and even after you ask them to spike it a bit more, there won't be any massive improvement.
The ambiance is nothing spectacular; however it is comfortable for both, a large group of friends (even if they are as raucous as my friends) as well as a smaller or 'less-alcohol-more-talk' setting. Note, however, this is no fine-dine. This is a comfortable, well lit place, with sporadic bursts of wonderful music (Coldplay etc) interspersed with some teeth clenching stuff like Bieber (blech!) and Kesha (why? why?).
The bill shouldn't be too heavy on your wallet, considering they have extremely long happy hours, as well as various schemes depending upon your credit/ debit card vendor. I got a 15% off on my Citi bank card.
Starters cost between Rs. 150-180. Main dishes would be between Rs. 200 - 280. A pitcher costs around Rs 450.
All in all, this place doesn't have gourmet food, it has joy inducing comfort food.
This place doesn't have chic ambiance and menus, it has a functional ambiance and a menu fraught with spelling mistakes and if you are an Archie's (the comic) fan be prepared to read 'Dhillon' instead of 'Dillon'. This place doesn't conjure up the best mixed-drinks, it however makes no mistakes in giving you the ol' Rum and coke or Draught beer.
So will I go there again?
I absolutely will.
