    The salt beef hash is tasty! But don't come if you're in a rush for brunch - there was a long wait for our food on a Sunday afternoon.

    It's very crowded and a bit chaotic. It's also quite slow, but judging by how busy it is, I think they are handling it well. Food is okay.

    Really really bad attitude of the bouncer. They ask for out ID and he assumed that he didn't see our DOB and stop us for going in. Whether is a prank or not but this is no funny

    The burgers, fries and coleslaw have to be some of the best in MCR. Great bar that is just the right side of cool (beware the occasional hipster) and the beer selection is always top-notch.
