    Fried Green Tomato BLT on a pretzel roll was excellent. Dolly Parton demands you play pinball

    Popeye's spinach cheese is delicious! The fries here have garlic and parsley; also delicious! Very decent pizza for a non-pizza place. Caesar salad, not so good. Nachos and chili are ok.

    It's so not an "arcade" - there are maybe 5-7 vintage-style games jammed up by the from door. But the concert was intimate and a blast. Baby Jesus on tap was suuuuper strong.

    The menus are fun, but you don't need them. Order the special. Whatever it is. Side of tots.

    I have never loved a bar - until now. Walked in, got a pint of Apocalypse Baby Jesus, replay on Pinbot, and The Cramps on the jukebox. What could be better?

    "If the schedule of local and national indie-rock shows don't draw you in , the better-than-bar food might. For those into games, there's a wall of vintage arcade games and a weekly trivia night."

    Check the hours they ate open. Small but good craft beer selection, better than pub grub food and a heated outdoor patio
