This is a good place to eat if you just want a burger and a beer. The service is good and the food is excellent.

I always visit the breakaway for an awesome burger with twister fries, great service, and the many great drinks. Beware though that's almost always busy and pickpockets are everywhere.

Had a desperado and played some pool. The interior is pretty cool and atmosphere is not bad at all. Might pop in again later some time for a game or two!
