Amazing dj in the weekend, small but well spaced bar, that can get packed pretty easy, super fun classic arcade games of the likes of mortal kombat, street fighter, double dragon and more! Has karaoke and pinball table. Pretty fun bar to with friends. Younger croud but not family oriented. Is almost a club on the weekend.

My wife and I were looking for a place to hang out on a friday night. This was the perfect place. Good environment, various age groups, not too young of a crowd. What put this place over the top was the DJ, he totally controlled the crowd and made a normal night out into an exceptional night out. We have... More

They have a ping pong table, foosball, etc.. they have food available, (which I didn't try), but it's typical bar food.. no drink specials when we were there which is a bit surprising as it was Tuesday...

Friday evening, the Kung Fu Saloon is of course pretty full. Very good selection of drinks. Wanted to go into a private karaoke room, but unfortunately too long waiting list. Good place for evening/night entertainment.

I've only been to this place twice. Each time has been a great experience. Unfortunately, I have not enjoyed their food as much as I've enjoyed their drinks and arcade games. It is a pretty big space indoor and outdoor. They have lots of games. I went on a Friday night and the table tennis seemed to be a big... More

The drinks a pricy and they don't have many specials, but the atmosphere is awesome. The place is surrounded by arcade games (free play), there's a ping pong table, foosball table, and private karaoke rooms so you don't make a fool out of yourself in front of others.

This spot never fails us. We always have a great time! Drinks are reasonably priced and made. The DJ is great. The games offered are fun and entertaining. We've been coming here for years and always have a great time. We are a group of Hispanic females and have never felt any racism.

This bar is awesome! Drinks are reasonably priced, great music, good security, private karaoke rooms, excellent outdoor patio with TV and heat lamps for cold nights. Usually not TOO crowded but it can get quite full. You won't really be able to dance here. My favorite part is all of the free games to play (skee ball, big game hunter,... More

Columbus day weekend... Day before a holiday off, and dead. I don't like overly crowded places, but I like places where people are. The drinks were good, they don't skimp on liquor. And I didn't go for food. I will say I loved the music... And the atmosphere with the old school games is pretty cool... I'd go back next... More

I love Kung fu saloon. The concept, the cheeseburger egg rolls but I must say as a black man. I have had lots of these racist dress code experiences. It seems like to dress ode should read "anything an African American man would wear is illegal". Truthfully I had had to pack two changes of clothes at times in order... More
