One of the best happy hours on Broadway in the neighborhood both for their food and drinks on the menu during the time, both normal times and the late night. Bartenders are very friendly and haven't had a bad experience here yet.

Nice location and kind service. The hamburger was really good. I tried the double cheesburger with caramelized onions, the size is not that big while the meat and both the onions and the cheese were very tasty. Also the fries were savory and generous.
