The place is located on a busy arterial in south Seattle industrial area. its a rollicking blue collar biker bar with cheap beer, great chili and great live music. their live music line up is great and there is both an inside and outside stage.

We saw this place on DDD website so decided to try it. The waitresses were awesome! We sat on the BBQ side but were able to order chili from slims. Wings good. Chili was somewhat flavorless.

Nice restaurant. Saw this on DD&D and thought we'd check it out. Of course, I ordered the Texas Red Chili (with "the works" added) and jalapeño mac & cheese. We were not disappointed! Biker type of bar, in a light industrial, blue collar part of...More
