Foursquare Tips

  • Strong drinks and a vast collection of board games are the highlights of this unmarked locals' favorite, between a furniture shop and the Slow Bar.
  • If you feel like being treated like a sub-intelligent inconvenience by a patronizing loud-mouth bartender - boy have we got the dump for you!
  • Try one of the wraps! They're pretty good!
  • Reliably divey, and will always be on the "possible hangover breakfast" list. I think they clean the ceilings about once every score or so.
  • It smells here.
  • Very good Ribeye steak
  • Cheese fries sucks.
  • You're smoking inside whether you want to or not.
  • Good greasy spoon type food by day and strong ass drinks by night. $3 PBR 40's, a bunch of pinball machines and a good jukebox.
  • CHEAP food & CHEAP DRINKS! Happy hour's 4-7pm!
  • Great happy hour!
  • Pinball and cheap beer complete the dive bar appeal
  • Comfortable bar that feels like dive home.
  • Good atmosphere and service. I didn't eat anything but the burgers did look good. Go there on a Wednesday to play some board games.
  • The game night was a lot of fun.
  • The facade is the same painted promotions you see on furniture stores stuck in the 70s. Beyond the threshold is an inclusive bar where one can revel in pre-gentrification and the joy of dark panelling
  • Check out My Fathers Place as seen on Best Bars in America
  • Solid dive. What else do you want?
  • Always good and filling. Service still a little funky, but worth the wait.
