Two friends and I had dinner here last night and we will never return. To begin with, the service was awful. There were literally only 3 other occupied tables and we waited close to 40 minutes to be served. After we were, by the time...More

Clearly a place meant for drunken students, don't waste your time and money going for lunch. Service slow and inattentive, food took way too long to get and was mediocre and barely warm. While the burgers were okay, the huevos rancheros were just two over...More

Nice bar to grab a drink and a snack. I like the atmosphere and the staff is polite enough. It's a great place to hang out with friends as well as go out on date night. I particularly like their nachos and moscow mules.

I had a blast here with my mom in 2015. We had great waitstaff and great view of the street where we could lookout at downtown. Great restaurant.

Having worked in a restaurant, I know that good ingredients and timely preparation all cost money. However, as tasty as the burger was, it was hardly more than a large slider. Add bacon and cheese, and the $14 jumps to $17, making it probably the...More
