Gets a mix of young and old locals mostly for low cost drinks. Place was probably last upgraded in the 60's. Adjacent dining room. Always seats available. Nighttime scene is young.

Very busy and everyone seems to know someone there. Breakfast was reasonable with plenty of choices. Service was good and friendly.

We each ordered the Brady's cheese burger medium rare and they came that way! EXCELLENT. It is so rare a burger is cooked like I like it. Places always ask but it always comes beyond well done. Well not here! Two beers, two burgers and...More

This is a great place for a burger or a sandwich. Total whole in the wall but a great late night place to stop. Take out available too.
