“Where Everyone Knows Your Name”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

We've been going to Twins Tavern for over 20 years. Seldom do we walk in when there's no one there we know. The spaghetti on Wednesday nights is the best in town (maybe all of DeKalb County), and the weekend broasted chicken is similarly delicious. Mike, the owner, is usually on hand to greet newcomers and welcome back loyalists. The place just makes us feel at home. One of our all-time favorites!

“Homey comfortable feel”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

How often is it that you go into a bar and feel at home. The Twins Tavern is a place that I immediately felt relaxed and at home. There is a good variety of drinks and the food is good. The waitresses, while busy are attentive to the customers need. The overall feel is very low keyed, the noise level very acceptable for a bar.

Grilled smiling mike is my favorite. I like it with extra Marinara. Cheesy pot roast on an onion roll is also a favortie!

Great atmosphere, good burgers and sweet service from very pleasant waitress. My visit was like an episode of Cheers, where every one knew your name.
