Stopped here after a Tampa Rays game and had a nice meal. Listened to live music while sitting outside and enjoyed the fun atmosphere. Inexpensive menu with several parking garages nearby. Was really happy with the place.

You get a pretty good burger for $5.95. You can't beat it. They had a nice selection of drafts, and a 32 ounce plastic cup. The place does get noisy, so it's not a good place for a quiet conversation. Overall, I enjoyed my meal,...More

We walked into trivia night here and the drinks were incredibly cheap and delicious. The staff was friendly and so were the patrons. It is loud though and with a younger crowd so I wouldn't go if those things seem bothersome.

It's so terrible that even Taco Bell or McDonald's is a step above. This is the kind of food that would be palatable only if you're so drunk that you don't care. We had burger, fries, and tacos. How bad can it be I thought....More

Visited Sunday Afternoon about 2:00 pm. It was busy but still some seats available. The menu was good and the prices are average. Local music and sitting out side watching the people walk by. Not a bad time. The food wasn't anything to talk about...More
