This place has a nice vibe, good for watching sporting events or chilling with friends. I usually go on Wednesday's for their $3 burger special.

Mother's has the best wings for any local bar that I've ever been to. It's a good place to sit down and have a drink to watch a game, but you should definitely try the wings while your there. They have probably 20 sauces to...More
