    Smelly dive bar with sticky tables, greasy food and lots of tap beer — great for game nights.

    Garbage food. Undercooked/not fried. When I asked for a manager the manager ignored my waitress's attempts to get him. Nate should be fired. He was rude when i talked to him. Never coming back here.

    The Cincinnati style chili isn't as good as the real thing, but not a bad substitute. Order it with extra cheese and extra chili to kick it up a notch.

    Thursday. Boneless wings. The best sauce isn't on the menu any more - but ask for honey mustard sauce and they'll give it to you. Not straight honey mustard; delicious tangy honey mustard wing sauce.
