Editorial Review of Jive Turkey

Jive Turkey claims to be the only place in the country that serves turkey ribs and turkey tips – and there are many more turkey treats on the menu.

The eatery, which opened in November 2008, also serves its packed lunch and dinner crowd bird-based culinary creations such as jerk turkey burgers, regular turkey burgers and turkey spaghetti. And there’s plenty of tasty things to wash it down with – such as Jive Turkey's homemade barbecue sauce or side dishes, which include grilled corn and French fries.

The eatery's entrees provide plenty of food to make a meal. But you’d be well-advised to leave room for dessert – in addition to chocolate chip walnut cookies, Jive Turkey serves banana rum sweet potato pie and homemade butter cookies.

All Jive Turkey's menu items are available for takeout. If you're too hungry to trot your turkey dish home, you can dine on it at the small countertop area, but take note: Jive Turkey doesn’t deliver.

Average cost: <$10
