The Dirty Drummer deep Fries wings like everybody else, tosses them and hot sauce like everybody else, and then they put them on the grill and make an culinary delight.

The Dirty Drummer isn't much too look at. It is tucked into a small strip mall and could easily be missed but you have to try this place. It's sort of a dive bar not much too look at but they have really good food. The wings are fresh and they have several flavors you can order. You can even... More

This sports bar was small and the service was friendly. The food was not great, it was more of a place near the hotel to drink a beer and get something.

As I continue to try to find consistency in this mixed-up, inconsistent world of 'nowhere to get a burger and a beer' (or wine for me :) ), I came to where I know... Where I've been since I was younger, growing up with a mom who ALWAYS says 'why not Dirty Drummer for a burger?!?!' Moms really do know... More

Having a 2 day layover, we tried to do a few things other than meals. On a Trip Advisor search of the nearby spots, Dirty Drummer came into view. We just stopped in for drinks, but I can honestly say that if we lived here, we'd be regulars. The menu looked great, and smelled wonderful. We will make this a... More

Everyone is always on the hunt for a great hamburger, and all the "Dirty Drummers" provide just that. Patties are made by hand, fried on a hot griddle, done your way. Interesting concept is they pour red wine over the meat as it cooks. Add grilled onions (soaked in butter), a lightly grilled bun, freshly made (too hot to immediately... More

Needed food and a walk and this place was only 2 blocks from our hotel. Sure this is the Home of the Unbeatable Burger but we eat lite and wanted chicken. Ordered a Chicken Plate and onion rings to share. First came the salad-GENEROUS. Then the plate with 2 moist and tender breasts grilled perfectly along with the grilled roll,... More

Nothing fancy at the Dirty Drummer, just one of the best burgers in town, the home cooked way with a touch of red wine added for flavor......also great grilled wings. Good neighborhood watering hole, very friendly and reasonable prices. Plenty of TVs to watch sports without the noise. Just wish they would serve the burgers on paper plates, instead of... More

ONE STAR Priority shouldn't be set on the people that are staying. Priority is first come first served. Customer relations with this kind of thinking will not ever be improved until this issue is addressed!!!
