    Don't leave without trying the Starlite-style burger: two 4 oz. patties on a bun, separated by a layer of fries and another layer of cole slaw, topped with special sauce. Messy but so worth it.

    Sloppy Joe night, kool aid du jour, tang, hot dog of the day, chocolate covered bacon, and drinks that will knock your proverbial socks off. If you're gettin a burger, order it w the cole slaw. Trust.

    Here's our go-to order: the skinny onion strings, the bbq sweet potato chips and the pepperoni roll. Give us a can of Carling Black Label or a terrific cocktail and we're happy campers. Read more

    Only six taps here, but the draft options are choice. Get the fries with (or without gravy) and the onion strings to soak up all the menu of craft cocktails, offbeat wines + more. Read more

    Sometimes there's chocolate-covered, sea salt-dusted bacon in the kitchen left over from Monday's brunch. Ask during the week and ye shall (perhaps) receive.
