A pleasant surprise

We weren't expecting a lot out of this place, but we got it anyway. We thought it would be an average bar and grill, but it isn't. It isn't overly loud or crowded or boisterous or dark. The food is bar fare but high-quality. The burgers are amazing: they have that great fresh meat taste. The shrimp... read more

What more would you want? Traditional campus area pub with excellent menu. Only downgrade was for the service. The last couple of times I have been there the Students working behind the bar and waiting tables.........appeared wanting to be any place but there. But in the end, food is good and a good selection of brew!

Went there during LA Tech football game. Good spot to watch sporting events. Good menu. Good choices. Louisiana bread pudding is tasty. Good atmosphere. Enjoyed adult beverages. The dawg punch was pretty smooth. I had a bow legged giraffe which featured peach snaaps. Both were good.

Do NOT judge this place by its cover. It has the best burgers in town. I loved the deep fried asparagus. Everyone is friendly and the college students were having a great time. We love this place.

I have been here several times in the past as the location is close to my job. I used to like going here until I took a friend to lunch who was a person of color. We were seated in the back next to the kitchen and it took 45 minutes to place our order. The wait staff was rude... More

Perfect spot for students, families and Rustonians! Burgers, fries, beer, games, cocktails, reasonable prices. What else do you need?

You can buy burgers, sandwiches and salads. I had the beef salad and it is juicy and super tasty. Service is good in a relaxing atmosphere.

This place is good for unique burgers and good beer. It's a bit pricey for a burger, but worth it. It can get a little loud in the restaurant, especially during football season, but this is a sports bar after all. The wait staff can be good or awful, it just depends on who you get as a waiter/ress.

Skip the chains and fast-food joints. This dive has character and atmosphere (and an occasional freight train blaring past). Good greasy burgers, and the chicken salad on a jalapeño bun isn't bad either.
