“This is a must stop when in Fresno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is a special place you must stop and eat when in Fresno. It's located near the college so at lunch and dinner times there may be a little wait. Be patient the line moves fast. There specialty is the Tri-Tip sandwich, excellent. But the menu has assorted selections for everyone. If you are ordering french fries with your meal the basket size is enough for 4. Also order a side of the onion rings, you won't be disappointed. It is open seating so grab what you can. They also offer waiter service if you wish. Since it is near the college there are numerous TV's with sports. Parking is an issue and it is monitored. You may have to park on the street. In any case make this a sure stop.

“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.
