    Tuesday AYCE crab legs. Service was great, staff on top of drinks, crab etc. Only downfall, smoke... I understand, just needs more ventilation, even on the patio. Will return, great food, cold beer.

    Great selection of beers and excellent food. I highly recommend the Pasta-rella Sticks and the Jalapeno Corn Fritters. Those two items are enough to bring my back. The decor and music is great too!

    The pastarella sticks forever. The back bar room is the real fun. No trendy idiot hipsters in the back and Marco will have a great time banging his head to the heavy metal jukebox with you!

    The pot stickers are ridiculously good, the music selection is awesome and the drinks are well priced. Go in the Spring and spend a night on the patio or hit up the back bar for tunes and pool.

    Love this place. I am on a mission to try everything on the menu. So difficult to decide what to eat. The property owners are a bunch of fucktards with their parkng though. They love to boit your car

    Cheap beer, pool tables, and fried food are the pillars of this dingy Midtown strip mall dive. Conveniently located next to Landmark Midtown, this is the perfect place throw back a few.

    The go-to order: Jerk chili, jalapeño corn fritters & the Kari Kari. (Seriously, just order all three.) Also, come by on a Tuesday for the $25 all-you-can-eat King Crab dinner.

    This is about as grungy as Midtown gets. Drink cheap booze and enjoy above average dive bar food while kicking ass in pinball, air hockey, or the coin-operated pool tables. Read more

    Be sure to check out some of the daily specials - they're usually VERY good. The Highlander was featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives from the Food Network.

    No one under 21 is permitted here, but that's OK. It makes the late night scene that much livelier. Best place for loaded potato skins at 2 a.m.

    Jerk chili was incredible. Love the atmosphere too. Great place. If I live in Atlanta this would be my spot.

    Try the shot called "Dry Rub." Only known by name here and only by certain bartenders One part Absolut Peppar. One part Au Jus. Up for the challenge?

    Service was horrible! Tabitha was the server and I'm not sure if she was just having a bad day or maybe she just doesn't like black people. I will never WASTE money here again!

    One of Atlantas best dives. Only downside is the smoke- it's thick and choking. Food and service are great.

    The jerk chili was good. The corn fritters were fabulicious. The pastarella sticks? No thanks. They taste like frozen ones an come out cold.

    If there’s a unifying theme to the cooking, though, it’s hearty and spicy foods rule. Read more
