Stopped in for the first time because of the history! loved the casual atmosphere. Salads are great, wings are the "world's best" as advertised, burgers not so much. Will be back on my next trip to IU for the wings!

The decor is amazing and the servers/waiters are ok, but considering the type of food, it is way too expensive (compared to other "wings' places" in town. Coleslaw very mediocre, onion rings great and decent selction of beers, but, again, overall way to pricy!

Loaded curly fries with cheese, bacon, ranch & BBQ sauce were great! Good college atmosphere, several tv's. Order at the counter but they bring food to you. Person taking order was very helpful in giving suggestions as to what to order.
