    Cheap and cheerful. Great selection of beers, and some of the food is pretty good. A little hipster dive bar, bar location is fun but make sure you bring cash! #CashOnly #Boston

    The food is good, but not spectacular. Also, they didn't take credit cards.

    Dive or not, it had an atmosphere that most people can appreciate, cash only, atm inside, worth going.

    Pretty good beer selection, but it's definitely a dive bar... Pretty boring atmosphere IMO.

    Vegetarians: I recommend the veggie "meatball sub": fried balls of eggplant with marinara and cheese.

    I went to bed and didn't see how every night turns out to be a little bit more like Bukowski and yeah I know he's a pretty good read (but! God who'd want to be such an asshole)?!

    This place is great. Bartender found out we were from out of town and without asking made a whole list of places to try. Awesome. Definitely a must.

    Great collection of beer. Good food. All in all an amazing dive bar. Ask for their secret menu of a $2 burger and $1 fries. ;)

    Awesome small bar that will probably have a beer that will satisfy your desires. Come prepared to sit at a bar. Has some simple bar food if you feel inclined to snack while you enjoy a local brew.

    A tiny spot crammed into the side of a parking garage and perched precariously over the Mass Pike, the bar is two-people wide. Music's usually rocking. Huge craft beer list. Cash-only.
