Surprisingly delicious pizza! It's dingy and smells like piss/beer, but the beers are actually good, and the pizza is great!

Enjoy frequenting this joint on weekends. The staff is hardworking, quick and friendly. The food is consistently awesome! Highly recommend. The crowd is usually laid back people trying to have a good time.

In the Monroe bar district in Rochester, this is arguably the best one. Always has a good crowd, and beer specials. Fun place to watch a game. Only complaint is the hallway leading to the bathroom downstairs is kinda shady, but overall, great atmosphere. Always friendly people, and cheap pizza.

The beer selection is great; we recently discovered Founders beer, which is a Michigan brew that we hadn't been able to find in New York state, even at Beers of the World! I thought my husband would... More

Their pizza and bugers are great. Good drink deals. Good location on Monroe ave. I had a problem with the manager/owner where I paid for my meal and drinks with my card but I was tipping cash. He thought I was stiffing him when I signed the slip. Nonetheless...not happy about that but I've gone back. Unreasonably slow service when... More
