As the prices in the area are going up and up, this is a great place to get some bang for your buck. The food is delicious and the staff is very attentive and nice. Don't miss the tator tots.

Stopped in for lunch - decor is cool - small place. Heard the burgers were awesome.
Pleasant surprise was that they had bells on tap- ( Michigan brewery ) - sounded like they rotated them regularly. I got the sargento burger (not on menu) sans the egg. I hear great things about egg - but just can't make myself do it. Comes with tots and came out looking good. Burger was absolutely amazing. I can't wait to go back and have another. The respect mobile burger was what everyone talked about - but I wanted bacon - not pulled pork on the burger. Maybe next time. And there will be a next time - very shortly.

Thank RJ24R2

Hey RJ24R2,
First I would like to thank you for the kind words, and second, I have to apologize for the delay in responding. The truth is, as embarrassing as this sounds, i just found us on this site. I thought that I should begin with that so that you would know that I truly do appreciate you helping us spread the word about us. I hope that you have been back in the past 6 months.

Thank you again,

Adam

This is a dive- in the best way. Really good unassuming food and a nice draft beer selection that changes frequently. As out-of-towners, we discovered that Wednesday is trivia night and that was quite entertaining. Loved the sweet potato fries dipped in honey!

We stopped in this place after doing some tours all day. It was a day the weather started to turn so we head for this place my friend had inputed to his GPS. No trouble in finding it in downtown MIAMI. Even at rush hour. Then you have to pay for parking oh well like home.
But I had my usall. Cheeseburger with fries and Soada. The guy behind the bar took our order. Had a great time. Atmosphere is ok for a bar.

You couldn't find a better place to kick back and relax downing a cold one. The food is priced just right and the food selection is what you would expect at a pub. The hook is the ambiance and the service. The filling station sits right in the middle of downtown Miami, but you would miss it if you're not looking for it. This is my first time after being in brick ell/downtown area for four years and my only regret is not to have come before
