We have enjoyed eating here numerous times. Food is consistent, service is good and is clearly a local place. Nice bar with TVs. Wed has $5.00 hamburgers - get there before 6:00. Will return if in area.

If you are in Newark Delaware you have to have the B and B burger. They have specials every night. Wednesday is $6 burger night. You can't beat it good place for a beer and burger.
