This place was packed with local college students and decorated with an abundance of kitschy stuff to look at while waiting for your food.

A bit of a dive bar in a great way! Queues to get in as it fills up fast, really fun, relaxed atmosphere and well priced. Food was delicious we sat on a high bench with a few other couples, the place is loud, busy, has great energy, food and drinks - I could have stayed there for hours!
