This is a sports bar and has the best hamburger in the Ruston area! They are flame grilled and have excellent condiment combinations to pick from! The waitresses and staff are also friendly!

This is the place my teenage crew request a lot. The burgers are exceptional and I love their Philly Cheese Steak and Onion Strings. Their choices of buns and tortillas make sandwiches and quesadillas even better. We all have a favorite appetizer so we take turns who gets to pick. The atmosphere is laid back and service is usually great.... More

Great food and great college atmosphere. Loved the spinach & artichoke quesadilla, and my boys loved their burgers.

I waited two hours for my food. When I was finally mad to the brink and asked for my check, and behold it was on there. So I told the lady I never received it. They did take it off the check but it doesn't help the situation!

All of the locals raved about this place. We decided to give it a try. Cool atmosphere to watch sports. The southwest burger was good, the grilled chicken quesadilla would have been but it had a burnt taste from the chicken, the Philly cheesesteak poboy didn't have much flavor at all. Pretty pricy too. A child's grilled cheese or burger... More

Great food & service by friendly staff. Comfortable atmosphere, music not too loud, TVs a-plenty. Menu items have something for everyone. The onion strings are to die for. Take a menu, close your eyes and touch something...it will be a terrific surprise and your taste buds will thank you.

Local College hangout. Just off of Louisiana Tech University Campus. Great Burger & Beer spot. Usually a good place to watch sports on several TVs. The food is good and we have always had great service.

We weren't expecting a lot out of this place, but we got it anyway. We thought it would be an average bar and grill, but it isn't. It isn't overly loud or crowded or boisterous or dark. The food is bar fare but high-quality. The burgers are amazing: they have that great fresh meat taste. The shrimp were also really... More
