We bought 2 drinks and 2 burgers. Tipped $4 which was reasonable for the $20 tab. Our blonde bartender went outside for multiple breaks. We still didn't have our burgers. She was rude and obnoxious. We finally got our dinner after a 2 hour wait....More

Rated as one of the top 10 dive bars in the USA and highly recommended by everyone we spoke to. A dive bar in my country is completely different to a dive bar in the USA so there was some trepidation. The bar is careworn...More

People this is a dive bar. There's nothing healthy, gluten free or vegan here. The tile is ripped, the walls are missing plaster and the bathrooms aren't marked men or women. Don't come here if you expect a 5 star experience. That said, it's the...More

This was a lively bar that doesn't get going until 10. Burgers and chips are the only food they serve and people were eating them. They had a good live band and everyone was having a good time. This is a former brothel and a...More

Burgers at midnight - how can you pass up a burger from a place that cooks them directly behind the bar? The aroma smacks you in the face! Yuuuum. Gritty atmosphere with serious people watching and live music until about 1am. Great way to end...More
