This place is a very modest-sized bar with TVs going, but that is not why we went. We heard that the food was tasty with generous servings and good margaritas were available. I had a salad with grilled chicken, pecans, cranberries and blue cheese crumbles that was out-of-this-world. The grilled chicken was moist and flavorful. And the margaritas were doubles. The only think I could fault them on was the salt on the rim was the ordinary table variety--not the chunky sea salt I prefer. This restaurant is convenient to a free multi-level parking garage. My companion's club sandwich was huge and good, too.

Found this little gem in old town Scottsdale. It was a hot day (well it is Arizona). So we stopped in for cold beverage; the frozen margarita was delicious! Try the Green Mary Lou appetizer; terrific flavor. Very friendly service too!

I wanted a salad, my husband wanted burgers and we didn't want to spend a fortune. This place fit the bill perfectly. The Scottsdale salad was fresh, nicely chopped and plenty large enough for dinner. The Patty ELT was thick and juicy. Service (Jimmy) was great and the conversion lively.

Great service! Had 3 slider platter special, one Pulled Barbeque, one Barbeque chicken and on brisket, all were awesome. Served with sweet potatoe fries and a deliscious salsa/ketchup for the fries. This place rocks. Reasonably price, lots of beer to choose from in the bottle. It was very quaint, and the only issue maybe on a busier day, harder to get a seat

Had a great lunch with great service. I will certainly be back to enjoy other items on the menu. I also had some great micro brewed beer.
