    You've a diamond in the rough! Where else can you play skeeball for $0.25 without going to Chuck E Cheese's. Enjoy the 3 B's here: burgers, beers and bourbon. Hot? Step outside to their outdoor patio.
  • Ruby B.
    Ruby BahianAugust 13, 2013
    On Mondays, go for their .27 wings & stay for the movie out back in the patio. They're also one of the few bars that have Caldera on tap, an IPA atypical of its kind.

    I honestly don't know why this place is so popular. Prices are average, beer is average, service is very sub par and slow, and the crowd I generally compose of cold bitches and douchey assholes.

    This place is a frat boy hangout on Friday nights. Only pretty people need apply. Bar staff are rude, fake tan types. I was admonished for turning in an iPhone I found sitting on the ground. Avoid.

    Start kicking people out / turning lights on at 1:30 on the weekends which is pretty obnoxious. Otherwise, their staff is friendly.
