Went here on a slow night when my friend and I were very hungry. The food was decent, a bit overpriced for the quality, since it was not a fancy restaurant. I had the Chicken Cacciatore. Very good and the portions were huge! And the service was great! Rachel was extra friendly and helpful with directions for my vacation. While it's not the best I've ever tasted, it was good and still very enjoyable

Greatest place on earth. I've been here so many times. Imagine a really fun divey sort of sports bar. A bit worn around the edges, not the cleanest place, a bathroom that never smells clean. And then imagine they enlarge the place in order to plop a big stage with two brass poles in the middle. The pressure here to buy lap dances is really low, none of the standard strip-club hustle. But the dancers are very easy to talk to so that you wind up wanting to anyway. Funny how that works. Anyway, every friend I've ever taken here has always remarked on how easy it is to just chill out and drink here. The crowd is mostly working-class Hispanic, and there is a greater ratio of nonwhite dancers here than anywhere else I've seen. A lot of them tend to be better-endowed in the bottom than in the top, so if that's your thing, you'll love it here. But on busy nights they really do have a lot of variety and there's also a few skinny blonde sweethearts in the mix. It can get really crowded on busy nights, as in nightclub-density (hard to move around), and sometimes the crowd can seem a bit rough - you get the feeling anything could happen, like the way Douglas Adams writes "it was the part of town where people's plans changed unexpectedly". So you have to be able to tolerate that element. As long as you're cool you have nothing to worry about, but I would definitely park my car in the valet lot, never on the street. The other thing about when it gets crowded is that when you see a girl you like, and you are in the market for lap dances, you should strike while the iron is hot, because she might get snatched up by some table of dudes that are all way bigger than you are, and they'll keep her dancing there forever. The lap dances are not "high mileage" compared to some other clubs, but considering it's a topless bar and you're on a chair at one end of the room in full view of everyone - no seclusion at all - they're really good. And these ladies know how to move. As I'm sure other people have reported here, this bar was featured in the Tarantino movie "Jackie Brown".
