What to say about this place?? The place kinda looks vacant. the signs are out and the front has a massive warning sign. However, when i walked in the bartender smiled and ask what she could get me. i sat on the far side of the bar and listen to everyone talk for time. it looked more like a bunch of friends hanging. well in a matter of an hour i was part of the group laughing and making jokes. most of the patrons were prior service or active duty. i go back when i can. if you ever find yourself needing a night cap. i gurantee the afterburner staff will be more than happy to serve you.
If walk outside and face the highway. pick your legs up and sip your drinking. it will make a world of diffrence.
critiques ARe OLD! – Check into any bad reviews---they are all old! The new owners aren't that new anymore and they got it going on. We look forward to visiting from Austin again.
The new owners are awesome! – Oh I went there back in the day when that old mean guy owned the place and it was awful! Now there are new owners and the place looks amazing and they have live music now! Its great! The bartender is a sweet heart! Its just way better now! I recommend going there. Its so much better. Great specials and great time!
AWESOME MILITARY HANGOUT!!! – It's a great feeling to walk in and get a wonderful welcome!!! Now that they have new owners, the place is rock'n!!! Love hanging out with all the interesting people that go in there... military, military families & regulars!!! The staff rocks... just a fun loving bunch who always makes you feel like family. Walking in alone and not knowing anyone lasts about 1 min. The staff welcomes everyone and makes them feel at home and ready for fun!!! I strongly recommend anyone looking for a good time to stop by the Afterburner... you won't regret it!!!
Worst place EVER – They rip you off on your credit card without telling you they're charging you extra fees which is illegal. The owner is the worst...you walk in and he is completely rude to everyone! I've been a few times and I'm never going back again. Don't waste your time with this place its trashy.
Cool Place for Military People – Cool place filled with mostly active and retired military people. The bartender and patrons were very nice, but it was more of a kick back place for regulars. Beer was cheap and there were pool tables. I'd recommend going there if you were looking for a night out with just the guys or if you had military friends.
Awesome west side bar – Great place to go and hang out with a nice crowd. Lots of military customers...so never any problems. Great drink specials from Jack to Crown. Texas Hold Em poker league 4 nights a week...Mon, Wed, Thu, and double points on Sundays. Monthly tournament for the top 32 players that month. The bartenders are very friendly and treat even perfect strangers as "regulars". Dartboards and pool tables...very comfortable atmosphere. Would recommend this place to anyone who likes to drink a few beers and relax after a long day without being around so many people you bump into someone everytime you turn around. Definately my favorite bar/club on the west side.
Dont use a credit car here – Hidden "fees" on credit card charge. This is a violation of VISA / MC merchant contract. Very rude waitstaff. I would not recomend this club.
