The building and inside is wonderful. The old man bartender was slow, crabby and an all around turn off. He was such a hinderance that the waitress could barely do her job, which was apparently everything he didn't want to do.

The sandwich... More

Gotta love driving up how 21 and then turning onto Main Street to Diamond Lil's. The real old saloon is filled with old west. The owners are amazing..the best cheeseburger ever..beer in a mason jar. Drove up on a Saturday afternoon to show my NY sister..always take out of towner's this fun little mountain town!
