    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.

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

    It was okay. Just a regular bar with turtle races only for the ladies to play, but their restrooms are so dirty like if no one cleans them there.
