The Madness Burger returns for the month in honor of the tournament. It's a 9-ounce burger cradled between two grilled cheese sandwiches and topped with lettuce, tomato, bacon, a fried egg, pepper jack cheese, and mayonnaise. It's served with fries and is $1 more if you order a beer.
MUST TRY: Jake's Smokin' Que Burger. The hot wings are delicious. Be daring & go for a Level 2 wings. Great beers and lots of TVs for March Madness.
Casual dining, enormous portions – Though the atmosphere is pretty chain-like, the restaurant is clean and comfortable and the service is friendly. TVs are strategically placed throughout the dining room, so it's easy to keep one eye on the game while eating the above-average bar food. Portions are generous--the nacho plate is the biggest I've seen, with plenty of cheese and toppings spread evenly throughout, not just piled on top. The Caesar salad is big, too--a little bit heavy on the slightly sweet creamy dressing--but an overall a good bet if you're not the burger and fries type.
Huge Appetizers – We ordered a plate of nachos and it was huge. Three of us couldn't finish it, and we tried. It was very good, with sour cream and gaucamole. The chili fires were also good, but get soggy after a while. The hamburger was nicely cooked, and wasn't too thin or greasy. The decor of this place is casual, but a little lame for a sports bar. It makes a great lunch spot.
busy, noisy, also outdoor seating – I ordered the top item on the menu-the filet mignon. Only french fries, but the steak was excellent. There was no bread served with the meal. When I asked the water, he said he would inforf the chef and maybe they will offer it in the future. When the host passed the table, he said that this is mainly a hamberger place, but he took note that bread should be served with the meal. I would go back. The fried chicken was also excellent.
