Fun place with good music and huge jackalope just as you enter the establishment. You can have your picture made riding the jackalope which is entertaining to do and to watch others. Tons of fun!

They were playing "Zombie Strippers" on the TV while we were there. A little odd, but kinda different at the same time.
