Best place to go for comfort food after a long night of drinking
Awesome old school working mans bar
Great place to hang out when El Bait Shop is too crowded. And you can walk over with your drink too!
Get the cheeseballs
It's like stepping into a time warp where it's still the year 1975 (wood panel walls and all, minus the ash trays). Also they have freaking tang here in powder form! Great with vodka.
the bacon wrapped tots r awesome
Busch Light and all the most delicious appetizers you could want!
This is my second time stopping by here when in town for a show over at Wooly's. Great lil place to grab a drink and a quick bite. The atmosphere is laid back, staff is lovely, and prices aren't bad.
Cheeseburger basket with tots!
Make sure to sit outside if you can! There's a few tables on the side.
Tots are the best in town
Three words: bacon wrapped tots
The fried cheese curds are a must—especially on Crappy Beer Night!
This place reminded my husband of a VFW w/the shag carpet & the retro beers! LOL :) The baked beans have a slight kick to them & they're out of this world!
Deviled eggs on the menu! I like mine with a bit more mayo but these are still yummy! Great service and cold beer.
Bacon wrapped tater tots.
This bar is a throwback to the sixties, complete with shag carpet, vintage wallpaper and wood ceilings. Featured on Travel Channel's "Man vs. Food." Menu features Spam and egg sandwiches.
Try the Italian Sausage - Graziano's: Sausage the way God intended.
Even if you have to wait 10 minutes for service, the food is totally worth it!
If you're staying for more than one, consider the 8-pack of High Life ponies. At $8.50 for 8 7-oz bottles, it's the best value in the place!
The new prime rib sandwich is a...wait for it...mazing!!!
The Italian Sausage is legit
Chicken and the Margaritas are amazing!
5 check ins free beer! I said free beer motherfuckers!!!
Try the Meatloaf - Comfort food on a cold day.
Best bar ever! Great 70's decor and beer signs.. Nothing but great real beers introduced no later than the 70's so if your looking for hipster microbrews you are SOL! The Food is great as well!
Sean Courtney provides the best bar conversation in town. If he's behind the bar, you're in for an enlightening experience.
The Chicken Fried Steak special on Wednesdays is the tastiest Hump Day deal going.
Try the Bacon Wrapped Tater Tots - Best food ever.
Order a Grainbelt
If u get Heather for ur waitress u better plan on being there for a while. Terrible service!
Come on Thursdays for crappy beer night! 1.25 a can, PBR, Busch Light and Hamms
I go at lunch and love their goulash with a side of coleslaw. Their cheeseburger basket is a good deal. The tater tot casserole's also good. The mac and cheese..... :)
I wish Elisa still worked here!! Best server eveeeerrrr!
Shaggy carpet and vintage beer ads are so swag
When they are out of the chicken pot pie, the "Highlife Man" burger is a great choice. Unbelievable combination of flavors!!!!
The Bacon Wrapped Tator Tots are amazing!
Fun fact: They do not serve beer that was introduced after the 1970's.
Get an egg on top of any burger. Perfection!
$1.25 crappy beer every Thursday
The pork tenderloin is ridiculous in size, flavor, and price. Eat it up.
Beer before noon Nutting better
