Stopped here tonight with a group. I really like the place based on past experiences, however, tonight was very slow on waiting on our needs. It was busy, but they could use a couple more people helping with peak times. I had a bacon cheeseburger...More

Had breakfast here on sat with cousins. Service was excellent. The food was really good especially the sausage links and it was reasonably priced with a good menu selection for an all day bar.

Full disclosure: I grew up on the East Side of Madison in the late 70s/early 80s so I have a giant soft spot in my heart for blue collar, neighborhood bars. And this place checks all the boxes. Sitting in here after a Badger game,...More

By far, the best flavorful bacon cheeseburger in the City to date. I asked for it well and it was with grilled onions, crispy like fried bacon, thick slice of cheese, and the rest of the works! The flavor was ultimately original for a bar...More

Very good plain cheeseburger w/ fries. Just cheese (American). Done medium. Juicy and delicious. Good fries. Coke, Water, Cup of decaf (decent coffee). Friendly staff. They accommodated our group of 10 & they split the check 5 ways easily. So good :)

Couldn't be part of the "clean plate club" here! The place was packed on a Saturday morning with locals--a good sign of quality--when "the usual" works without a menu. Way more than I could eat with the ham and cheese omelette, hashed browns, and wheat...More

Never been impressed with this place but then it seems most people that rave about it have just gotten burgers so maybe I've missed out on their specialty. Been for fish and it is typical WI fry up - - not bad but not outstanding....More

You wouldn't think a tiny kitchen in a converted gas station could serve up anything other than a bar burger but they do a mean breakfast and Friday fish fry.

Great small restaurant bar, with great huge portions of food. Food is outstanding, and the Bacon they serve with breakfast is some of the best we ever have had.
