Enjoy the ambiance of this place. Best burgers in DeKalb! Try the onion straws, too. This is a lovely neighborhood gem.

This lowkey bar and restaurant is a townie bar that serves pub fare such as burgers, sandwiches, fries, and fried chicken. The service is efficient, the prices fair, the atmosphere non-threatening (but decidedly local) and the chicken very good.

Great place to eat in DeKalb. We each had something different. Beef brisket, Italian beef, and broasted chicken and it was delicious. If you have never been there, you should give the place a try.
