    Get the dressed tecate, lime juice, salt, and hot sauce, on the top of a can of tecate! There you go, you got a drive through liquor store version of a michelada.

    Veggie burger with waffle fries is amazing. Get a vodka cocktail and sit outside—it gets loud and packed in there real quick.

    Great bar, has a good mix of people. Can get a little crowded and loud in the front but the back is usually better. Also try a Blood Stream just for fun.

    If you're ordering food with a friend order together so you get served at the same time. Otherwise one person will end up waiting a long time while the other person is finished with their food.

    Sneaky great brunch with boozy cocktails to waste away a weekend day with. Breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg, cheese, and roast tomato on a croissant. Sausage gravy egg and biscuits. Coma.
