Stopped in for lunch and had the crispy chicken sandwich. The sandwich was excellent and the fresh cut fries were to die for. 12 beers on tap, friendly staff, and lots of locals in there the staff knew by name.

Small local bar with good food! Tasty food and good conversation. Nice owners. The kind of place where you leave with a large pile of napkins on the table since the burgers are large and juicy.

The burger at My Buddy's Place is the best I've had anywhere within a 50 mile radius. The establishment is cozy and very relaxed. Don't expect a "fancy" place. I decided to have the burger because I judge most restaurants by this standard. If you...More
