  • Staff avoids you like the plague!
  • The outdoor patio closes about an hour earlier than the bar.
  • The BBQ Lovers Delight is a ton of food. You will eat for days. The Prime Rib on Fridays are good. The wings are good and the staff is fairly attentive.
  • Old Town's home for Purdue sports. Football and Basketball. Boiler Up!!!!
  • Great place for freezer burned chicken tenders. I've cut through phone books that were more tender.
  • Old & lame.
  • Beef Ribs are a must!
  • Fire. Play. Sin.
  • Where's the underage people?!? Here alone. Family event. Drunk and alone. My own age group
  • Buy jordon a beer.
  • Outdoor seating on sunny/warm days. Happy hour beer specials, last visit they were featuring Surly beer (delish!) perfect with the three flavors wings.
  • $3 shot during Happy Hour (read the fine print)
  • Amazing pork chops were super tasty and best value for money.
  • Large bar in Old Town. Their specialty is large sugary cocktails served in plastic cups - if your looking to blackout this is the place to go.
  • BBQ burger was great. Fries were awful. $13 shrimp po boy only had 4 shrimp and a ton of bread & nasty pale tomatoes- it was decent tho, just way too salty. Ambiance is pretty nice. Good for sports.
  • Used to be one of the more tolerable bars in Old Town but the renovations have sucked most of what character it had to begin with.
  • Kitchen is open late!
  • Serious renovations, significantly reduced in size for now until the expanded space is complete
  • Las costillas son espectaculares!
  • Too busy at night. Crowds push and shove. Supposedly the good is good for dinner though. Will report back
