Visited during the Stampede twice. The food and drinks were both good. The staff was excellent. Daily/weekly specials are good and the half order of nachos were perfect for two. The full order is huge. Liked that it was not a zoo like other bars...More

If your looking for a place to enjoy a beer and some awesome food, this is the place to go. I think of it like a dive bar and their food and service is awesome.
