My husband wanted to eat here based solely on the number of cars in the parking lot each time we drove by. The inside is dark, people have written on the walls and the bar stools are so old and worn that they are taped together. There is an old pool table in constant use and a blaring TV. Not expecting much......
Then came the awesome pulled pork sandwich, loaded with tender pork and dripping with really great barbecue that they make themselves. Excellent..... it was served with a bowl size salad that had chunks of cheese and a wonderful balsalmic something... This great meal was less than 9.00... My husband's ribeye sandwich was double mansize and came with a big pile of fries. He downed the entire thing while singing it's praises.
We did not eat dinner after this lunch.... stuffed.....
If it had been warmer I would have chosen to eat on the patio.. better atmosphere and matching chairs... go if you are hungry- and ignore your surroundings... great food...

We were intentionally looking for a casual place to eat near where we were staying (Farmhouse Inn in Forestville, CA), especially because we had indulged in a gourmet meal at the Farmhouse restaurant the previous night.

After a quick google and finding out that this place was featured on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" Food Network tv show, we were sold.

My husband had a burger, which he thoroughly enjoyed. I don't eat meat, but was relived to find available options for me on the menu (especially for a bar known for its wings and burgers). The waitress was friendly and mostly attentive.

It is a rustic bar with a locals vibe that is easy to miss from River Road, but if you are looking for casual, quality bar food, it's worth a consideration.

If you are heading to the Korbel winery and looking for somewhere to eat lunch don't discount this little gem on the side of the road about 1/2 mile east of the winery.\
Whilst the exterior may not be too attractive and may give you the feeling that this is the local watering hole for red-necks and bikers, nothing could be further from the truth.
The food is simple but extremely tasty fare and the service is outstanding.
Portion sizes are large and the selection of beers is more than adequate for the enquiring palate.
Our group ate beef dip, spicy sausage sandwich and the chilli/cheese fries. All were wonderful and we enjoyed every mouthful.
For desert I tried the Bread and Butter pudding and confirm that this was as good as my mum made when I was growing up in England!
