We picked because of diversity of menu but especially Tater Tots gone wild. Food was good. Enjoyed by all ages. Service was awesome and very friendly waitress. Speakeasy feel, very dark. We will return.

We were there for bingo night. It was a blast! $1/card. So fun! You win gift cards for menu items. We never knew there were so many variations of bingo
