Yes this place is a "dive bar" and it's a little dark in there, but the food is really good! We come in here since we can walk from work and always enjoy it. The service is slow at times depending on what's going on (they do delivery so sometimes the waitress is preoccupied with getting those orders out), however,... More

The drinks are great and the food is to die for.... More

This is a dirty dive that is okay for a few beers and bar food. The food is fried, is served on paper . . . surely it's safe. But just in case, go for the cheap beer and skip the food. The staff is typically one cook and one server who takes care of the bar and the tables... More
