The cheeseburgers are amazing!! My wife and I love to get medium rare cheeseburgers and the meat is tender with amazing taste of the grill and the sauce tops it off to make it our favorite cheeseburger in the city! Even better is the staff and management. I bought 2 cheeseburgers but they had three for me when I went to pick it up. Unfortunately the third burger was cooked more than we like so the next day I told them and when I came to exchange the burger for a new one the gave me not just one but three free cheeseburgers!! Wow they made my day. Thank you!!

Excellent tacos, and there's a deal on Tuesday nights. Service was ok, and the rest of the food was solid. I'd go back only on tuesdays. Definitely a community watering hole.

The eclectic mix of taco options is nice. The ones I've tried have been good. $2 tacos and $3 drafts on Tuesdays is a great deal.

Met some frenemies here recently, wanted to check them out. Had ordered off of grub hub, but wanted the dine - in experience. It was a little crowded, and service was slow, but we were a big group and our orders were a bit staggered. Glad to have knocked this one off my bucket list :)

**THIS IS A CASH ONLY BAR!!!** Good bar to grab drinks with friends if you're in the area, not sure that I would travel out of my way to go here. Great friendly staff, cool atmosphere and you can even bring kids (early before night crowd) if you're there to eat. The Smoked Margarita and the Pomegranate Margarita are AWESOME!! The alcohol taste isn't 'strong' in these drinks, but don't be fooled. They are tasty and will creep up on you. They offer plenty of other cocktails and spirits, there's definitely something for everyone. The food is pretty good. I haven't personally had the tacos, but I heard they are pretty good and they didn't look 'skimpy' on filling when they passed me. They are about $3-$4 each depending on what you get. I had the chicken sandwich which was pretty good and it came with fries ($8). If you're looking for big thick pub burgers and sandwiches, this isn't the place. The food was really good though and I would only eat there if I got hungry while drinking there, but I wouldn't go there just to eat. But then again, see for yourself. I'm a 'spoiled' American that LOVES huge portions.

Girlfriend had a grilled sweet potato taco and spicy avocado taco. She called them "very flavorful" and would want to come back. I ordered chips and guacamole. It was a good mix of avocado tomato cilantro and onion. Could have used a bit more lime maybe. Service was relaxed.

Get the No Bullshit special, a tall boy, a shot, & a taco for $6. Or the grilled wings! It is a bit dark inside though.
