    Get the regular dog with the works

    David Brahler · July 13, 2015

    Grab the cheapest beer and find a shady seat

    Julius Tarng · July 4, 2015
  • Frank D.

    Sit outside and get a Narragansett and kielbasa, because there is no inside

    Hipster, cheap beer, perfect for summertime day drinking.

    Jillian Switzer · May 29, 2015
  • Alex R.

    Perfect spot to drink a few beers outside when the weather is nice. One of my favorite spots in the neighborhood.

    Alex Ravenel · March 12, 2015
  • Amanda T.

    spicy dog $4, burgers $5 and get it with thick cut bacon added. outdoor seating

    Amanda Theiler · February 27, 2015
  • Ben R.

    The best summertime day drinking spot.

    Ben R · September 28, 2014
  • Jaclyn

    Half sour pickles is where it's at.

    Jaclyn · September 13, 2014
  • Varun S.

    Live the high life. Get some wine in a tiny plastic bottle or ask for a mystery beer (it'll be $3 - it'll also be the crappiest beer they have - drink lots of them).

    Varun Shetty · September 1, 2014
  • Liam K.

    No french fries, so don't even bother asking!

    Liam K. · August 24, 2014
  • Meg L.

    Just the perfect amount of crappy. Unbeatable atmosphere!

    Meg Lewis · August 24, 2014

    It’s a great spot to sit outside and drink a few cold ones. You’ll know it’s time to leave when you have to use the restroom. Beware – it’s not for the faint of heart!

    CITY GRIT · August 9, 2014
  • J Crowley

    Leave your white pleated pants at home cause the double burger is straight outta Super Sloppy Double Dare. It's smothered in sauerkraut and a delicious steal at 8 bucks.

    J Crowley · August 7, 2014
  • Tom M.

    The double burger is the best in Brooklyn --- have it with a ice cold draft of Pacifico

    Tom M. · August 6, 2014
  • First We Feast

    Frosty beer comes in plastic cups, and burgers and hotdogs are cooked on a makeshift grill. Be sure to bring cash to pay for your afternoon of outdoor boozing. Read more

    First We Feast · August 3, 2014
  • Daniel M.

    Outdoor seating with burgers, hot dogs, and pitchers of beer for very cheap. Perfect.

    Daniel McDonough · July 13, 2014
  • Alie

    Drink all the beer !

    Alie · June 20, 2014
  • Noah W.

    Pretend you're on a boat and you need to eat as many $1 pickles as possible to prevent scurvy (price is real).

    Noah Weiss · May 29, 2014
  • Joe K.

    Great burgers

    Joe Kozlinski · May 27, 2014

  • Jennette M.

    Great bar. I love this place. But be careful. That only applies to the ladies (of course).

    Jennette M · August 24, 2013
  • David W.

    If you get anything but the grab bag to drink, you should probably just go and fuck yourself because you are a pompous rich aristocratic asshole.

    David Woodley · August 24, 2013
  • Derik B.

    Love this place! $16 for a pitcher of Duff? $2 for a hotdog? $1 for pickles? WTF??? YES!!

    Derik Boik · August 18, 2013

    Nobody puts Baby in a corner without ordering randos.

    Jase · August 11, 2013

    Nice ambient and good prices.

    Amilcar Charlemagne · August 4, 2013
  • WillMcD

    Perfect watering hole. Got no plans, no place to be, then no reason not to throw a few back here. Nice pop-up summer bar. It's the best.

    WillMcD · July 17, 2013

    Cash only - ATM by the entrance

    Nathan Caress · May 29, 2012
  • Jessica W.

    Skip it. The entire staff is bad at their jobs and full of really nasty attitude. The place is dirty and overpriced.

    Jessica Wedge · May 29, 2012
  • Jessica W.

    SO RUDE! Awful staff, awful owner. Treat customers like garbage. There are SO many more worthy places to spend your money. Please don't support them.

    Jessica Wedge · May 26, 2012
  • Joseph H.

    Avoid the bathroom at all costs.

    Joseph Hall · April 18, 2012
  • Zachary B.

    Only open in the summer. Get a hot dog and a can of Duff and meet your new best friends.

    Zachary Blank · March 25, 2012
  • Brendan S.

    This summertime beer garden is a dirty beach bum’s dirty hipster’s paradise, complete with dirt cheap burgers and hot dogs, and the added lure of Styrofoam cups of beer starting at one dollar. Read more

    Brendan Spiegel · February 22, 2012
  • Brian M.

    Fun, outdoor place. All the joys of a party/bbq, but none of the clean-up. Dirt cheap too.

    Brian Masefield · January 15, 2012
  • Katy K.

    Pork Slap me!

    Katy Kelley · November 1, 2011

    Where they use a hairdryer to air the coals on the grill.

    Jenn · September 22, 2011
  • Cabrone B.

    Two Random Cans = $5. Can't go wrong.

    Cabrone Brewer · August 23, 2011
  • Brandi K.

    Couple of PBRs and a hot-off-the-grill all-beef hot dog is not a bad way to spend an afternoon.

    Brandi Koskie · August 20, 2011
  • Warren C.

    Outdoor Pabst Blue Ribbons - hard to beat

    Warren Cohen · August 15, 2011
  • Sam R.

    More hot sauce.

    Sam Rosenberg · August 6, 2011
  • karen b.

    This is the place to be for day drinking. They serve beers in cans or pitchers for cheap and they grill meats. On super hot days they have misters. Wear your hipster shades if you go.

    karen bonna rainert · July 30, 2011
  • Nicole S.

    It's like if Forest Gump threw a picnic.

    Nicole Stipp · June 19, 2011
  • Alex O.

    Cash only.

    Awesome beer week venue.

    How can one hate a cheap-beer-surprise-grab-barrel? Holla at some Schlitz.

    Lindsay · July 7, 2010
  • Nathan C.

    22 of ballantine is a no-brainer

    Nathan Caress · June 4, 2010
  • Kelly K.

    Pickles and beer. What more could a girl ask for.

    Kelly Kai · June 2, 2010
  • Matt F.

    Can't beat the cooler full of Carling Canada Black Label, Pabst Blue Ribbon & Schlitz.

    Matt Furtado · May 3, 2010
  • Neal G.

    Its not a yacht club FYI

    Neal Gorman · April 6, 2010
  • Kara K.

    I could hang out here from morning until, well, the next morning. And I have.

    Kara Krupnick · March 9, 2010
  • christian svanes k.

    if there's an american guy with a mohawk, a bit on the older side, a bit on the sinewy side too: buy him a canned beer, and tell him "i hear you are the hot knob guy." he won't punch you.

    christian svanes kolding · September 28, 2009
  • Warren C.

    outdoor beer here

    Warren Cohen · September 13, 2009
  • Craig A.

    More fun than hood sliding over the General Lee! Awesome hot dogs, great beers and just enough white trash atmosphere to keep things nice and country!

    Craig Alshin · July 28, 2009
  • Amy W.

    get the pulled pork when they have it

    Amy Winnewisser · May 26, 2009
  • Erik M.

    drink old Milwaukee and eat burgers with pickles and ballpark nachos on side!

    Erik Michielsen · May 11, 2009
