    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.

    Surprisingly good beer choice - old school smokey sports bar.

    Best Scout Mob in town! Two entres, two beers, two shots, and an appetizer. This is like 10th one so far. And food is awesome!

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

  • Yuna 🇰🇷 P.

    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.

    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!

    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 falafel is excellent, recommend trying it as a beef burger alternative

    Chris Kelner · June 21, 2013

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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

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

    Avoid this place. Terrible service, smokey (even outside) and hour+ long waits on your order.
