The hungry visitor will not be disappointed if he or she meanders on down from Ferry Street and then onto Wilson Avenue to find Krug's Tavern. Did somebody say BURGERS? Well, believe me.

Brother in law suggested Krugs and I could not have been more pleased. Excellent burger & onion rings I devoured in no time and a couple of beers made for a great Friday night with the guys.

If you want the best burger around then you want to go to this place. Don't be scared by the outside or when you walk in the door. I've been here about 5 or 6 times over the years and I went back today. I brought a co-worker here for lunch who had never been before. We each had the... More
