If you go here you're going for the history behind the place, and the fact that it's Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory's favorite restaurant -- not for the food. The food is ok, but I'm not sure it's worth the hustle and bustle to...More

Very affordable dining, but I believe it is cash only. As a family we tried the burger, sweet potato fries, tacos and chilli dog. Enjoyed all choices, but the kids LOVED the tacos. Beer and wine available. It was very busy for dinner.
