This is an experience we have been chatting about every time we visit Alton and have never gone. 15 years! We were not disappointed. Food was good, inexpensive and plentiful. Beer was cold. Music was loud. Everything we hoped for.

Family and friends at Eddie's Bon-Air. Best place in the area to celebrate birthdays and special occasions, or just to stop by and have some incredible food. It's Saturday and the band was playing and the place was bustling with a celebratory mood! Fast and furious is how I describe the whole experience. Can't wait to go again.

The locals suggested we try this bar and we were not disappointed! The food was incredibly cheap, which must be the reason that each person is REQUIRED to buy a drink. No free water til you have bought a drink. ....Took me a bit to figure out these rules. They have a limited menu, I think 7 items, but food... More

We originally found this place via an Alton Brown Food Channel show, and the food is great and cheap. They only do cash, no credit cards. 8oz Angus burger $2 and fries $1, when you buy any drink, including a diet coke for $2.50. Expect a long line, but it moves fast and then ~20 min for the order to... More

We were going to dine at this unique "pool hall" and restaurant and bar. The music was so loud when entering that we felt there would not be a quiet enough corner, so after taking a short tour, went elsewhere. The place is deftly worth touring, especially the pool "room", which has a still classic look!

I'm not a regular - I live an hour away. I got braces a couple of weeks ago. I need to cut up my food into bite-sized pieces. I can't bite into large chunks of steak. All I wanted was a knife to cut my food. Plastic knife? Can I borrow a knife? For 30 seconds? Look - braces. Really?... More

We hop on our Harleys and buzz up to this restaurant a couple times a year for a burger and beer. We went on Sunday, Labor day weekend and had a blast. Even though this place was packed, we waited only 15 min. for our food. Keep in mind, this is not a sit down, shirt and tie or family... More

This is indeed a total dive bar. But everybody has been there many times. It ain't fancy and it ain't pretty! The food is cheap and plentiful. Half pound burgers, large shrimp, kebobs, fries, and not much else. The crowd is eclectic. Plenty of bikers, music lovers, singles, couples, and on and on. It is often difficult to get a... More
