I need to explore more options, but sandwiches and burgers I've gotten there for takeout have tasted frozen and dry and over cooked. Next time I will try the pizza

Friendly neighborhood bar & restaurant less than five minute walk to or from the Times-Union Center in Albany, NY. So you only need to park one time. Good pub grub and drink selection. Good value place before or after hockey games or concerts.

Used to live near here and was a quick option of something to eat. Burgers were burned and dry. Apps over cooked. Low quality frozen junk poorly cooked.
