  • Anything and Everything
  • The food here is dumb good. Korean chicken sandwich made me rethink my life. Buffalo wings were too spicy. Quality food. Drinks could be better. If you have only one cider, it shouldnt be Citizen.
  • Superlative cocktails. Fun atmosphere, and upscale gourmet comfort food like hamburgers, hot dogs, and mac&cheese done REALLY well. Love this place :) Chili-heads should try the Atomic Dog!
  • Freaky fries: solid, could be freakier. The wings are good, the Brussels sprouts are great. The pork and chicken skewers were both just ok. The pork nachos on special were pretty dope though.
  • Cocktails, chill environment and funky music.
  • If you don't mind loud music blasting in your ear or a bit of spicy food, this place is for you.
  • Great cocktails, fun vibe, midcentury modern dcor, bone marrow accompanied fries, and a delicious hot dog. Whats not to love?!
  • I'd turn the music louder
  • Moderately crowded on weekends. The cocktails were ok but nothing mind-blowing, didn't like the glasses they were served in.
  • get freaky fries, nori chicken skewers with ponzu, the mudslide & The Silent X cocktail!
  • Gotta love a place with a photo of The Runaways in the ladies rest room.
  • Spicy food, cocktails!
  • Sausage bomb and a high life will set you straight. Fun vibe.
  • Interesting set of cocktails, hip favorites and tasty barsnacks
  • Great bar, good atmosphere
