Beetles has free popcorn, plenty of tvs, and a good menu for appetizers and drinks. There is plenty of seating and a nice outdoor patio in nice weather to sit with friends or family. Good onion rings.

This sports bar has the best popcorn in town. I usually get the broasted chicken which is very good but other food items are good as well. Can get very busy which sometimes affects the service but overall this is a favorite place.
