This is a favorite of biker's but is a welcome retreat from the crowds of the more touristy places. The sandwiches, pulled pork, and chicken steaks are good. The company is locals and friendly.

Provided local information and suggestions about things to... More

Be sure and read other reviews - but we liked it. This is a local treasure of a building. The outside porch is a favorite of smokers - so that might not be for everyone. But inside is smoke free - a large room with a U-shaped bar. We kind of expected typical bar food - and that's there -... More

I had been to this place before and was disappointed there was no stomboli soup the night we were there! That being said the food and service were great. The wings are great as are the french fries. Everyone in our group of seven enjoyed their food. Burger and Philly Steak Wrap were popular choices too. It's small, so we... More

Small place, however it is worthy. They were packed but accommodated us as soon as they could. Highly recommend jalapeño peppers, wings and Philly cheesesteak.... Excellent choices.

Didn't visit for years but finally went for dinner and all was quite good. Interesting menu with great pit beef. Not fancy, but good food and attentive service.
