After reading about the $3 cheeseburger and fries here, my friend and I decided to check out what the talk was all about. We arrived around 4:30 pm, grabbed a seat inside by the bar and proceeded to order.
10 minutes go by, and no waiter shows up. The bartender notices us and asks us what we would like to drink. We order 2 house Chardonnays at $4.50 each.
i'll have 3 glasses, thx
10 more minutes go by and still no effen waiter. We flag down the hostess and she comes by and takes our order. Then, the bartender comes by and takes our order, but we told him we already ordered. Come on guys, get it together. So not organized!
Anyhoo, the Chardonnay arrives and it's pretty damn tasty. Not dry at all, almost sweet like my favorite, Riesling.
Our food arrives shortly thereafter. For 2 girls, we sure can eat!
Oyster shooters: damn, this was good! Big oysters in a shot glass with cocktail sauce and something else. We liked it!
Suck it down!
Spicy chicken wings: Not bad, the wings were tasty with a kick. A bit messy to eat, but they are wings after all.
Spider and fries: Decent dish. Calamari was good, although they were a bit soft. I like my calamari crispy. Fries were meh. Too soggy and salty.
Yes to spider, no to fries
Cheeseburger and fries: Hmm.. pretty good burger! We shared it since we were pretty full at this point. It was cooked well done, but still good. At $3 you can't complain!
All in a all, it's a decent place for Happy Hour. We ordered 5 Chardonnays total along with all the food and the bill was $40! Woohoo!
2 winners here are the oyster shoots and the wine. Service was good after we actually got waiter. Solid 3/5 stars.
