OK Bicycle Shop

LEAN_Bicycle-IMG_1191Stop in this bar/restaurant that’s suffering from an identity crisis in the best way possible. Serving dishes with south-of-the-border flavors as well as sushi, it’s the perfect place to fuel up for or wind down from your exploration of Mobile. If you remembered to pack a second stomach, go for the duck nachos, a mountain of tender smoked duck, fresh pico de gallo, cheese and crispy tortilla chips that’s more than enough for two. Wash it all down with a pineapple-jalapeno margarita.
