We visited here yesterday. The food was good until we seen all the flies and gnats. The bar area was so dirty that we felt like we were bothering the obese male bartender to clean it. He used a dry towel, and basically dusted the left over food from the previous customer to the side. Disgusting. We have been to... More

Be prepared to wait in line and to get a lot of food. I had the park sandwich and it was huge! Could only finish half. Their tri-tip sandwich is supposed to be very good too. Would like one of these in our town.

A simple but bustling place to get a great tri-tip sandwich with a cold beer on tap. A fun, busy, noisy place filled with young people. Always good food and lots of cold beer on tap.

The line was quite long getting into the restaurant but it went quickly. Surprisingly quickly!! We chose to sit down and have our food and drinks brought to us. Service was quick and the food...

I love this place. If your looking for a great meal at an affordable price this is it. My regular order is a Tri-Tip sandwich with seasoned fries and a house salad. The meat is piled at least 2" thick on a French roll, and the house BBQ sauce is to die for. This is a sports bar style Resturant... More

The salads were not very good but the tri tip sandwich was delicious. The place is very busy and loud so I got the food to go. The sandwich has tons of meat and the bread so very good. The salad just had way too many onions and the dressing wasn't good with the meat

Menu very different, but soemthing for everyone. Outdoor seating along a waterway that had no water because of the drought. But would be beautiful when it does. Conveniently located in downtown area. Can view mission from outdoor seating.
