We used to go here. Just for burgers, once or twice for prime rib. The last time was just nasty. Not very clean, the prime rib was tough and there were some patrons that, let's just say, looked pretty rough around the edges. We walked...More

Stopped for lunch on Saturday at 1:30. This was our first time eating here. Maybe 3 or 4 other tables occupied so not real busy at that particular time. Very surprised looking at prices on menu. Very pricey for the type of restaurant/ bar they...More

The food is Awesome at this Restaurant and a great value but Gary the Bartender/Waiter is Very Mean and the Rudest server that I've ever experienced. This guy should not be able to interact with people.

Stopped here tonight with a group. I really like the place based on past experiences, however, tonight was very slow on waiting on our needs. It was busy, but they could use a couple more people helping with peak times. I had a bacon cheeseburger...More

Had breakfast here on sat with cousins. Service was excellent. The food was really good especially the sausage links and it was reasonably priced with a good menu selection for an all day bar.

By far, the best flavorful bacon cheeseburger in the City to date. I asked for it well and it was with grilled onions, crispy like fried bacon, thick slice of cheese, and the rest of the works! The flavor was ultimately original for a bar...More

Very good plain cheeseburger w/ fries. Just cheese (American). Done medium. Juicy and delicious. Good fries. Coke, Water, Cup of decaf (decent coffee). Friendly staff. They accommodated our group of 10 & they split the check 5 ways easily. So good :)

Couldn't be part of the "clean plate club" here! The place was packed on a Saturday morning with locals--a good sign of quality--when "the usual" works without a menu. Way more than I could eat with the ham and cheese omelette, hashed browns, and wheat...More

Great dive bar. Looks like an old time gas station. Great service and cold beer. I asked the bartender if the chicken wings were good, she said yea, asked is the mushroom burger is good, she said it was the best! Fresh burger, lettuce, tomato...More
