    Located on Lincoln (right near Washington), Brennan's is an appropriately neon-signed dive bar that's been doing real, live turtle races for 38 years. Read more

    A dive bar that is remarkable only on Thursday night when they hold their weekly turtle races. Definitely fun entertainment with no cover. But here's a hint, don't point at the turtles. It'll cost ya.

    Great place to hang out and get a drink. $4 burgers on Wednesdays and a great drink selection.

    The bacon cheese burger with grilled mushrooms and onions is like Jesus came down from Heaven and blessed your mouth with liquid taste. Literally
