The girls can't get within 5 feet. They can't go past pasties and G-strings. They pay for their own songs on week nights. They do not even try to smile until it's time to walk around and collect bills. Still go because it's an institution and some of them can really dance, but set your expectations low.

The food is phenomenal for this type of establishment. The prime rib is amazing and the atmosphere perfect for a bunch of guys attending Rolling Thunder!

Wife and I went in because of the food prices on the board outside. Once in, we decided to stay and try it. It's a non-nude strip club (they wear pasties). In looking at the reviews below, other visitors must have been distracted by the dancers because the food was poor. "You get what you pay for" applies. Also, the... More

I travel throughout the United States via motorcycle and have been to 49 by bike and flew to Hawaii. Have eaten in countless places primarily independent. One of my BEST meals ever was at the CCR. I had the PrimeRib that was cooked to perfection and at an extremely GREAT price. I have paid triple the amount and gotten a... More

We eat in a lot of kabob restaurants. This one is an upgraded hole in the wall that we found a few years ago and hadn't been to for a while. Today's visit found the place with lovely airconditioning and a slightly better interior. The food here has always been good. Bread is at t

The food was above average for any restaurant let alone a strip club. Tried one of the specials recommended by my waitress. Chicken Kabobs over rice and it was great. The entertainment was also very good. A number of very attractive dancers and waitresses. Well worth the time. Good food and entertainment can't be beat.

This is a 21+ age limited restaurant with a scantily clad staff. For those that want to experience a piece of Arlington's restaurant history then "CCR", as locally known, is a place to go. Good burgers and steaks at very affordable prices and generous tipping is expected ;-)

After having a long dinner and a few drinks on our way back to the hotel, my two make colleagues and I decided to have one last night cap. This place was right there and with no specific signage of being a strip joint. We only had two beers before so clearly, we were not drunk nor there was a... More

Food average and the dancers are the draw. Girls push for tips, so don't go unless you want to tip the girls to dance for you.
