Though 'seedy' looking outside, this was an enjoyable meal in a very clean & quite atmosphere. Happened the burgers were half price on Mondays, beer cold and not much more than iced tea, potatoes fried well; what more could you ask for. Service was quick and friendly, country music quietly playing in background. An outside area was available but not used. Bathrooms were clean.

A reasonable place to go for a burger. Unlike most nearby alternatives it is open late. Bring a sweater -- I found it a bit chilly inside.

My friends invited me last night to celebrate a birthday at Tommy Joe's. We all have never been here but they were interested in the karaoke. I don't sing so I was more into the food scene. The place is very casual if you know what I mean. We ordered the buffalo and poho style chicken wings, the yummy loaded potato skins, Rhode Island style calamari, nachos and tacos. These appetizers were so filling we couldn't even order the main entree anymore. The nachos were superb! And half off too that night. Everyone was ordering it. I prefered the buffalo wings because I like it spicy and those who did not like spicy liked the poho style wings. We all have preferences, don't we? The only food that needed some "touch up" was the Rhode Island style calamari. The server was kind enough to bring it back to the kitchen for some more spicing and flavoring. It came out right this time and we finished the whole plate. Then at a certain time, it was time for karaoke. I guess this place is frequented by regulars since people started trickling in and seemed to know one another. There were wannabees, out of tune singers, and yes! Some of them can sing too! It was really entertaining. And we found the food cheap...reasonable for the Bethesda area. So if you're feeling celebratory, down and out, need a pick me up lift your spirits, this is the place for you. It's a fun place to go where you can let your hair down. Sing to your hearts content but wait in line. There are many ahead of you. I give this place a thumbs up!

Great "Hang Out" Bar.

Space:
Lots of space to spread out.
- Small patio out front
- Main bar area
- Restaurant area
- Outdoor covered patio
- Outdoor "tiki bar"
- Back room for parties and meetings

Staff:
Staff really takes good care of patrons, and you'll see this as there are a lot of repeat guests. (Bartenders & Wait staff knows the name all of the regulars & semi-regulars.

Suitability"
Great place for hanging out with friends, meeting new people and enjoying a meal

Pros:
- Good staff

Cons:
- Bathrooms are small and need to be upgraded
