Great burgers. Unique side options. Has take-out. Good local, smokey, bar environment. Limited outside seating. Room for small shows in the back. Can get beautifully loud at times. I would not recommend it for the modern, luxury traveler.

My neighborhood hang out. Good friends. Not for everybody. Can be loud. Always smoky. I miss the old days. Don't know new staff. John Ben Morgan still there after all these years. Completely ignored recently by a new guy.

Great food, wonderful service, friendly staff: this is the place to be on a Friday afternoon, if you want to hang out with EAV locals. We enjoy starting our week ends here, visiting with friends and meeting new people. You can't beat the food or...More

We didn't get to eat but had a blast drinking and enjoying the atmosphere. They have a unique piece of art that's wooden that has a sign saying that you can touch the "art." I can't describe it here but it's nothing like I've ever...More
