  • Only bar that has not gone trendy? Wtf
  • Just go there!
  • Ask for a Sharpie to write on the bathroom wall.
  • Best Bathroom Graffiti.
  • Years later, STILL my favorite dive bar of all time. Beer, friends, kick ass jukebox, and lovely bartenders. I heart you, Gusoline.
  • Ask to share some Crown Royal with Thurston Preston Glasswick III
  • Tuesdays = No crap Tap night. All drafts $3
  • It's a divey little gem in the middle of trendy Royal Oak. Come here for the beer and the jukebox. If you're lucky, you'll get a stool or a booth.
  • I always have a corona with line at any bar. So nothing new to say here except that it's a really cool place to hang out with friends and meeting some really laid back friendly people!
  • Get the table by the front window for some of the best people watching in the city.
  • Best "real" bar in Royal Oak hands down!
  • Awesome hole in the wall serving a large range of beers including lots of local MI beers. Homely and easily lovable. Go to the shitter for a good read
  • Great MI beer selection.
  • Tip Coleen and Carrie BIG. They are the best!
  • Why does this list gus's like 5 blocks from where it's actually at? Who's the moron?
  • Fun place. No longer cash only, as mentioned in previous tip
  • The beer, jukebox, atmosphere, bartenders.
  • This place rules. A must check out. Very cool.
  • Beer. Just beer.
  • They have the brand new Wizard of Oz pinball game. Spent three hours playing it tonight and I'm sure I'll spend many more!
