This place is the awesome-est and spookiest dive bar I have ever set foot in! Crumbling walls, a former brothel, a haunted jukebox, forlorn corridors doused in red twilight, creaking doors, an enamel bathtub, dark corners and cold beers served downstairs. Come at nightime for...More

Go for the history and a cold beer. Stay for a Soul Burger. Listen to some great live music or throw a quarter in the juke box!

This restaurant is NOT for those looking for anything fancy or swanky. Ernestine & Hazel's is an old, rough, halfway-condemned looking building. It's perfect! They serve beer (no fancy cocktails or liquor) and serve up a mean no-frills cheeseburger. All of that, combined with the...More

After seeing this place on tv as a must-visit burger place, my boyfriend and I had high hopes - which is totally our fault. When we got the soul burger, we were not that impressed. It was... fine. Not a truly amazing burger as we...More

Hands down this is probably the dumpiest dive I've ever been in, however probably the best burger I've had to date. This place is most definitely not for those who expect a higher end dining experience. It is a dive bar with a single man...More

A fun experience, bets with a group, so much history, not sure how many of the stories are true but it adds to the mystique. Only food is a soul burger but its as good a burger as you will get.

This place is creepy and dripping with history, which we happen to like. I inquired of a cook if they had any ghost stories and he took us around and told us some, after he'd made us some soul burgers, which are the perfect size,...More
