Reviews for Bootstrapper

My cousin Lizzie talked very highly about the chicken at this restaurant for quite sometime. So I decided to check out Bootstrapper for myself. Last Friday at half time from the Warriors game I called in my order of Prawns, Potatoes Salad and Lemon Pound cake. I picked my order it was ready when I arrived. I returned home and began to dig into my dinner. Oh boy, those prawns were big and meaty lightly breaded delicious just like I like them to be. Potatoes salad was okay. full review
I have been here previously based on my cousin's recommendation and it was decent. Today I was not happy at all. I ordered. In fact I used a coupon through Yelp. Paid more to get the 3 Catfish/ 3 Wing plate. Owner didn't ask if I wanted potato salad or fries but that wasn't the issue. When I got back to the house I discovered that he gave me four wings and only two pieces of catfish. I only paid for this plate in order to eat catfish and try the wings as I saw full review

The catfish here is soooooo good! Whatever that awesome seasoning mix you folks use for the batter, please don't ever change it! Super friendly service and community conversationalists fill this small venue with smiles and heart. I'll surely be back!
