That's right, $4.50 for a blue moon draft on tap and they're disguised in these curvy glasses that will fit 12oz when filled to the brim. And God forbid, if you ask the bartender "top you off" when she fills it to a mere 9.5oz...More

Tiny place. Big taste for BBQ and burgers. Very nice staff. Lots of locals. If you leave hungry you ate at the wrong place! Don't let the less than impressive building facade fool you, it's worth stopping in for a quick meal.

Those who follow #silversagemag know we are barbecue aficionados. That being said, Grumpy's Bar-B-Que was a must stop. Venue: Surprisingly large old house turned into restaurant. Lots of different rooms, well decorated and all of their awards (of which there are MANY) posted on the...More
