    Met some interesting people here and got some Jell-O shots and free popcorn one night. They were streaming accident videos of people doing stunt videos.

    Atmosphere is fun and the TV content is interesting.

    The drinks are subpar and they usually have a cover on the weekends. Good for "white trash" food like mini corn dogs and tater tots.

    Perfect place to go after you've been drinking...food fit for a 5 year old child, which is perfect, imo! Good vibes and cheap. Def going back next time I visit SF.

    Great spot for thirty-somethings who want to listen to the songs they grew up with. The later it gets the sloppier it gets.

    Kind of great white trash. The snacks in the old rv are ridiculous. A place where it seems perfectly de rigeur to hold a friend's hair while she vomits in the bathroom.

    Only bar that I have been to in SF that charges a cover just to stand around (no dance floor). Lame!

    A "white trash bistro" featuring 80's-90's pop, Spaghetti-O's, and awesomely themed cocktails. A low-key alternative to Bootie if you want dirty dive bar dancing!

    Oh man...this bar is kinda bar... I came here for the 80's and 90's music theme and it had my jam !!! From the outside, it doesn't look much and the neighborhood itself looks pretty sketchy...

    The bar may be a stereotype but, the clientele isn't. What a mix of people. The MashUp (usually Thursday) DJ is the shit. Best bar concept ever. Embrace the Butter!

    Deep fried Twinkie tastes like French Toast. Garnished with mini marshmellows, strawberry sauce & sprinkles, this dish begs for a double Goose & Soda to wash it down.

    Any bar that sells 40's is good in my book. This place also has great mixed drinks and a weird white trash sheek vibe to it.
