“I wasn't impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Seeing it ranked at #2 for Fresno, I was expecting a lot more. On the positive side, the service was super! The waitstaff was litterally running around making sure everyone was taking care of. Also, the fried calamari was delicious and plentiful. On the less-than-positive side, yes, the tri-tip sandwich was fully loaded, but the beef was cooked well past medium, with no juices left and actually quite dry for tri-tip. The onion rings were of the frozen variety, I really was expecting home made. Also, to reiterate other reviews, the blaring loudspeaker in your ear is a definite turn-off!! It's a college bar, plain and simple.

“Great food, beer and sports bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Great atmosphere to watch a game or just enjoy a meal and a beer before an event at the Save Mart Center, which is across the street. Parking is a challenge and becareful where you park if there is an event at the Save Mart Center because you will be ticketed and/or towed if you are not careful. Try the "off the menu" cheesy fries, delish!

“Best bar and grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I love their tri tip tacos! they are huge with lots of meat and all the fixings, and salsa. Also they have some really good fried calamari with sauce. My husband likes the tri tip sandwich and my kids always get the burgers. they have excellent ribs too.
