Call A Cab

My boyfriend and I asked the server what the strongest drink was and she said the Call A Cab was the best! There are a LOT of flavors to choose from though. Was definitely worth the wait (the line was out the door) and tasted delicious. The girl who took our order/rang us up was extremely nice and... read more

Skip all the lightweight drinks and do the call a cab. And then actually call a cab, because you will feel this one!

Got the melon one, next night pina colada and they were both very good. My daughter and her boyfriend enjoyed the mocha-ish one, can't remember the name.

While the music was fantastic (country blues), the policies and customer service of the manager and crew left a LOT to be desired. The policy that they cannot serve you a meal or drinks unless you are at a table makes sense until you have a few extra friends or family sit at your table and denied service because there... More

This is a great spot for the frozen drink experience. The staff is very friendly, willing to give you suggestions and quick to offer a menu if you're in need. The ONLY downside is the volume. On both occasions I've visited, it seemed that there weren't enough bartenders to keep up with the customer flow. I will be back, I... More

Get a Frozen drink to go as you walk around. They even have a low sugar one if you need it. It is right across the street from live music, so grab a drink and take it over.

We were tired and hungry with kids and aren't barbecue eaters so we stopped in here. We weren't expecting much because of the very bar atmosphere, but the food actually was great. My catfish sandwich was light and crispy, not greasy, as were the fries. The remoulade sauce was delicious. My son's chicken fingers were light and crispy - not... More

I have asthma so it's hard for me to deal with smoking. This place serves food so there is no smoking. There was a blind man singing blues and playing the harmonica and his side kick playing a kicking guitar! I loved it! We watched the game on the flat screen and drank some awesome slushie drinks. Men are not... More

We wandered into this place based on the music we heard coming out of the building. We are glad to have done this. The group playing was very good, great guitar and bass guitar playing. The female bass player had a great voice. The drinks were frozen concoctions that satisfied our need at the time.
