Well, its on a main road and it has seen better days. As long as you're okay with a little aging, you'll love this place. Like your favorite neighborhood haunt.

I took my daughter there for her birthday and the service was excellent as well as the food. However, this establishment bills itself as a "bar &a grill". Let me warn you that the bar part is only some beer and a house margarita that...More
