A bar with no beer, a "Bar & Grill" with no grill – Firstly, they offer a choice of one type beer... Bud on tap, and no food whatsoever. How can they call it a "Bar and Grill" when they barely meet the bar specs, and completely fail at the grill part.
The owner of the bar has video cameras setup through out the bar, which he will watch for entertainment purposes in his spare time. Don't even think you can get drunk in this bar, have a little fun dancing around, maybe put on a lamp shade for fun... and not become the subject of the town afterwards as he shows the videos to EVERYONE. He makes sure you become the talk of the town, and are forever humiliated if you happened to get "that" drunk. It happened to ME, so i'm speaking factually - he ran the video for my boyfriend one day, which has caused devastating problems between us, as i got a little drunk and danced around a little more than i should have while being out without him that night. Not only did he show the video tape of me, but he referred to me as a "hood rat" and lied about having a one-on-one talk to me about my "behavior" and threatened to 86 me from the bar - NEVER HAPPENED....
The bar is near bankruptcy at this point, or so it seems by their lack of funds to stock up the beer supply or purchase a "grill" or even snacks for that matter. If you are lucky enough to get drunk at this bar, you will surely regret it as you will become the joke of the day and humiliated for doing so.
It's got to be the deadest, lamest, ghetto bar in the south bay area. Let's hope for change of ownership in near future to allow for a descent Bar & Grill to replace "Big Johns".
