Nadia R., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Dec. 12, wrote, "We had the Nashville chicken sandwiches, which were absolutely delicious. The coleslaw is an excellent touch on the sandwich. Also, their buffalo mac and cheese is to die for! The red sangria is absolutely delicious, and their house-brew Arooga beer is great!"

And Michael P. wrote, "Tried their wings, very good. Kangaroo flavor wing sauce is amazing. They also sell the bottles of sauce. The cookie pizza is delicious."

Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: Arooga's Tap & Kitchen is open from 11 a.m.-1 a.m. on Monday-Wednesday and Sunday, and 11 a.m.-2 a.m. Thursday-Saturday.
