    The Mac n cheese is amazing! Be sure to try it with sriracha! The olive in this dish gives it an extra, delicious kick. The bahn mi is also delicious and the chicken and waffles! Also, pie, pie, pie.

    As a Hampden local, this place is the best local bar. The food is really good too! Everyone is friendly. Don't fear the hipsters. They're people too.

    For out-of-towners who may be in doubt about the definition of a hipster, visit here after 9pm (and don’t leave without trying the pumpkin pierogies!) Read more

    Get the PB&J dessert! It's a deep fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich topped with ice cream, whipped cream and caramel. What could be better?

    The food was great but the service was subpar. I got the Brussels sprouts and the Mac and cheese. The portions are large and filling. The Brussels sprouts were roasted well, a little vinegary.

    The Venus salad with chicken is simple and great. Good draft beer selection. The jerk chicken is amazing. Love the Brussels sprouts too!

    I agree with all previous tips recommending the fried pickles. The breading is perfectly flaky and they come with a superb chipotle mayonnaise. But there's only three spears per order, so if you're wi

    Veggie wimpies, white wine mussels, kimchi pierogies, and beef bulgogi are all amazing. Beet salad is recommended, if you like beets!

    Lots of good vegan options. Don't get suckered into the individual drinks, always get a carafe.

    Burger and Boh is a surefire win every time. Fried pickles are a staple. If the falafel wimpies ever make their way back on to the menu, get them! Read more

    Questioning what to order? Go directly to the Banh Mi. I found it to be superb with the blackend catfish (rather than pate) and a salad with house dressing.

    Get the wimpies. Got the burger and it was still raw on the inside. Not really in to eating grocery meat that hasn't been cooked, but the cook was able to manage a wimpie.

    The tiny bathroom stalls in the women's bathroom are actually ingenious. You can rest your drunken head on the door of the stall while you pee.
