  • A bars that's just the right kind of dark, perfect for day-drinking, though not the first place youd take your mother or girlfriend. Food items include a White Trash Cheese Dip & chicken and waffles.
  • Cash is good for local businesses and encourages you to live within your means. Stfu.
  • This former garage now bar is a great place to spend an evening in Cambridge. Spin the wheel of beer if you dare!
  • best sandwich board in Cambridge
  • Live within your means and support a local business: CASH ONLY
  • What's not to love about a bar named after a poet who did some of his best work while sloshed? Named to honor Charles Bukowski, has an awe-inspiring beer menu and is famous for its burgers.
  • Cash only - but worth the beer list. Why not join the Dead Author's Club? Ask about the "dollar" burger weekdays.
  • Can't beat the White Trash Cheese Dip!
  • White trash cheese dip; eat it.
  • The remodel has caused this place to lose its appeal. It was very disorganized and hard to get a waiter's attention even if you've been seated.
  • Service is so slow now since the reopening. Go somewhere else
  • If you get the Hobo special, make sure its a Miller High Life 40.
  • The peanutbutter burger rules!
  • It's a shame this place is plagued by miserable service...
  • Buy a liter of beer! Only $10 and you can keep the glass.
  • Prices: Buks prices are better than they were. They were getting a lot of heat about a year ago. I'd also add I liked the menu additions & presentation was improved. This is one of my favorite places.
  • Only cash!!!
  • Bunch of tools, cash only
  • This place smells like raw sewerage and the food was really bland.
  • Fun place, great burgers, tons of beers to choose from :)
