This is a small 100 year old plus tavern, good ordinary food at cheap prices. Great service friendly atmosphere. Had cheeseburger with chili and tea for $5.50.

An old time workers bar where everyone from mayors, business owners, to ditch diggers went when they got off their shift. Was a stag bar years back with very limited facilities for any ladies. Hold over from 40s-50s. Cold beer and hot sandwiches
