Just that 'kinda' fun on a hot day

Just a fun place to hang out, have a few beers and watch the tourists walk by. Prices are average as is the food. Not sure how it changes during the night but has lots of potential for fun.

The food was a no no, stay away. As far as the drinks go I cant speak on it because I only had beers but from what I see, everyone is drinking and drinking a lot so I assume that the drinks are great, but still no food on the tables. I guess that should have been a sign.

We were told to go to this bar to watch the Badgers beat Kentucky in the final 4 game. We ended up having one drink and leaving because the music was SO LOUD that they then had to turn the TV's up EVEN LOUDER, and the flashing lights - total sensory overload. I thought I would have a seizure. Many... More

The sports bar and sports betting are in the back, where the volume of the games is always turned up. Generally in the front we always have the music turned up. We are a bar in front and sports bar in the back, though we have TV's in the front so anyone can watch the game, listen to music and... More

This is a sports bar first and foremost - a place to sit and watch folks walking down Fifth Avenue and have a few drinks. HOWEVER they do serve food, and it's really good. Not great, but good solid appetite-pleasing food. I consider their menu "bar food" - burgers, enchiladas, nachos, etc. The trash can nachos are really good, especially... More

I am always gonna have a good time anywhere with my friends. We ate and tried all different kinds of new shots, got nice and went home. Great music playing with small screens at the bar playing the corresponding video.

I could have sat here all day... drinking and snacking. But, we did not want to get drunk, so we walked and shopped

We watched NCAA tournament games with friends from home. Great place to watch games or people on 5th, but the food is so-so at best.

Food is better than typical bar food. Lots of TV's with just about any game you want to watch available. Those who like to gamble can put a peso or two on many games as well as various horse and dog races around the US. Nice place to have a fun evening

My husband and I visited the Tequila Barrel twice during our fortnight's stay. The staff here are always friendly and helpful although most of the toilets in the ladies were out of use on both visits. The first time we ate I had the pulled chicken enchiladas which were spicy with oodles of melted cheese. My husband wasn't impressed with... More

This is the best sports bar on 5th Avenue, the food is good if you feel like having American food, there is also in-house sports betting. If you are looking for a quiet place to have dinner this is definitely not it as costumers usually get loud with games and sporting events but if you are into that you will... More
