Lips Restaurant Review

: Lips offers moderately priced cuisine served by over-the-top Amazon drag queens, most of whom measure over six feet tall in spike heels. One may use this place to start off a rambunctious night out with friends. Dig into dishes inspired by these fabulous ladies: Evangeline (lasagna bolognese) and the All Beef Patty (a super deluxe Black Angus cheeseburger). The signature steak with frites is dubbed Yvonne Lame after the owner.
