Jack Allen is a really comfortable restaurant, with sparkly lights inside, big windows, and lots of kitschy art on the walls. They serve comfort food like barbacoa stackers and pork tacos, have a whole section called “Chicken Fried Anything, and bring a bunch of dishes out in mason jars. The restaurant has been around for a few years and has a few locations, so it’s easy enough to get a reservation, and everyone will feel taken care of, which you can take credit for instead of the restaurant to win some points.
