This place is kind of pricy and very small. Definitely don't go if you have a large group. But the food was decent and the people were nice.

We like this place and go there often... why? Because the food is good, it's not too expensive, the kids meals are a bargain, it's got a casual atmosphere, the wait staff is nice, lots of tvs, and always has 16oz. PBR's for $2.50. Our only reservations is that it can get very crowded in the evening, especially at the bar. So if you are looking for a place to bring your kids on a Saturday night, be ready for a noisy place. The crowd is also a very "local" crowd, so the feeling can be that everyone knows everybody else, and then there is you.
Things to try; burgers, wraps, tuna sandwich, gyro's and Cuban's. You won't go wrong.
But, if you are looking for a local bar and like staying away from chain restaurants, you will do well here.

Great food,great service and a great spot for some drinks and laughs. I love the Blackend Tuna and the Pigs in a Blanket. The Bartenders always make you feel at home!

South Riding Inn is a small sports bar and grill in a very nice neighborhood. There are plenty of TVs with wireless speakers on tables you can tune to a particular TV. The bar runs the length of the dining area, and is reasonably stocked. The dining area has two problems. First, the entry is a single door, so in the Winter, the chill reaches the nearest tables. Second, because the bar area takes so much room, the tables are not suitable for a party of more than 6. There is an outdoor area, but it smells heavily of smoke and is otherwise not pleasant. The overall feel is a manly one, though it's friendly enough to families.

I've frequented this place during the past year, during which there have been some modest changes. As always, however, Monday is $5 burger day, though toppings cost extra. One of my favorites is a fried egg - haven't had that in years, and it's only 50 cents extra. The fries are excellent, and can be substituted.

Ah, but the burgers! Best I've had in a long time. Problem is, they're evolving. Last year, the burger was a double patty - two huge patties of quality beef cooked to perfection. A few months ago, they started making them single patties. Now, the price is still okay, especially on Monday, but I miss that huge double. To be fair, they were too big to be healthy, and the current size is as big as any burger at other similar restaurants.

More recently, they've had a chef change. The burgers were spiced up a bit, which was good, but not the pure beef we were accostomed to. So the jury is out - plan to go this week to see how we like them now. Also had a Monte Cristo, which was very good (not great), and a couple other sandwiches which were also quite nice.

Service is excellent, at least for regulars. Brooke will remember what drink you like, burger, etc. Free WiFi.
