This bar is located on the main downtown street. Grab an outside table and have a beer while the women shop. Avoid the bathroom at all costs it was discusting and I could smell it before I found it. Use the public restrooms accross the street. Food was great.

VERY casual neighborhood bar that serves a great breakfast for $3.99. There will probably be a few locals having a drink before work, and by 8am the tourists start showing up. Eat inside or outside in the fenced in sidewalk area.

We were in town for the Art festival. We went to BB's for lunch. The food, when we finally got it was good. We first ordered our drinks and watched them get warm sitting on the bar while the wait person was sidetracked by her talking and being on the phone. While sitting there, 3 tables of customers came in and left because they could not get waited on. We won't be going back next time we come into town.

We visited BB's twice. The first time was on a Friday, the place was packed but we got a couple seats at the bar. Service was pretty quick and drinks were reasonably priced for a tourist town. People were fun to talk to here, very freindly. We even got to meet the owner and he bought us a round. The next night we came to eat, the food was great. I over heard a conversation at the table next to us that went like this: Tourist "What's good to eat here?" Local "Everything on the menu is good!" We will go to BB's the next time we're in Tawas.
