Let's start with this place is a punk rock restaurant. Food was great. Pancakes were crazy big. When we got there we saw beer cans and cigarette packs all over the deck. We didn't realize this place was a bar at night. Half the waiters...More

I was a little skeptical after reading some of the reviews, but I am glad I did not listen to the negativity. First off, parking is not great. We went later in the afternoon and did not have an issue, but I can see how...More

We learned about this place from a friend who had made a recent trip to Chattanooga so we had to give it a try. The restaurant is so far off the beaten path that you will have trouble finding it without GPS. Even then you...More

We came for an early dinner when the place was empty. The food was just ok but the place is so much fun with the great music, cereal boxes, comic books, rock posters and the rest. Worth checking out for all of the “stuff”.

It's a small eclectic space full of character. The food, however, is large and full of flavor. My husband had the breakfast burrito and said it was amazing. I had the (small) biscuit and gravy with sausage... yummy and just the right amount of kick....More

This may be the smallest restaurant I've ever been to, almost like you're going to a friend's house with lots of other friends and you are all jammed in close. We went on a Friday morning and had to wait an hour before being seated,...More
