  • JoAnna is the best bartender ever
  • The chicken fingers are great.
  • Great staff, great atmosphere, great prices.
  • super dark. and old. but I imagine this place is exactly the same as when my dad hung out here when a student at WSU in the 1970s. cheap, broad menu. great/warm in winter. oftne overlooked.
  • Small ham and pineapple pizza, 1/2 pitcher of Blatz, Dianne behind the bar, Red Wings on the TV: A perfect Wednesday night!
  • Bluemoon and a burger
  • Great place for lunch!
  • Seriously sub par. Do not under any circumstances order wine. Service is not great but seems like a management problem more than the servers.
  • Pizza was delicious, bartender was very personable
  • Pizza. Cheap booze. Old Greek guy owns the place. Dive bar. What's not to like?
  • If you're on a budget this is your spot. Get a pitcher of Shlitz, Blatz or PBR.
  • is still the same Circa you remember.
  • Curly fries with mustard!
