Gross -- EXTREMELY GROSS "food"...and they're rude – My fiance' and I made the mistake of eating here. DISGUSTING. Completely inedible sorry excuse for "food." Granted we should have been suspicious of eating here in the first place. But in our experience, most dive bars have pretty damn good burgers. Magoos doesn't even come remotely close. Imagine the kind of frozen, substitute meat filler (with soy, wood pulp, other unrecognizable ingredients), microwaved burgers you would get at 7-11. That's what they serve here -- for $6.95! Needless to say, even though we were very hungry, we took one bite and couldn't finish the rest. When the bartender asked if we were through, I politely told him that it tasted like meat substitute (I thought they may have served us soy, veggie burgers by mistake.) He mumbled that it wasn't. No apologies. No "can I get you anything else instead?" Very rude. Having both worked in restaurants and bars for decades, we were taken aback by this complete disregard for customer service/satisfaction. Yes, customers can be a pain in the ass. But when they have a legitimate complaint, as servers, we always look to do something to soften the blow. So against my fiance's wishes (because we work in the industry we very RARELY complain), I decide to talk to the "chef"/owner(?). When I ask her about the kind of ground "meat" they use, she concedes that it is some sort of meat by-product. But again, she doesn't offer to take them off the bill or comp us drinks or even just a sincere apology. Instead, she snaps "no one has ever complained before." Wow. There is no way that anyone who has ever tasted real/100% ground beef could not notice the difference. Or, all the other rubbery-Magoos-burger-eaters must be wasted.

In short, she too was rude, unprofessional, and childish for a woman in her 60s or 70s(?). Having thought we left the building (my fiance' was in the bathroom), they proceeded to make fun of us. Laughing that we wanted a free meal. Hardly. We left hungry. And still tipped our bartender over 20%. In return, we received a lack of respect, human decency, and customer service. I would say just go here for drinks. Yet, in this day in age when most of us need to be choosy about where we spend our hard-earned money, I would suggest going to an establishment that still cares about their customers.

Best Sports Bar in town – Alway the place to go for the game. Great food & snacks, Friendly staff that's very easy on the eyes. 50" Plasma screens everywhere. Now that there's new management & no smoking, it's the best sports bar in town.

Watch your tab – Had a buy-one-get-one-free coupon. Hmmm. Halibut @ $8 something (greasy) and a Ham Sandwich w/chips $6 something. One wine at "Happy Hour" $3 and two beers. Tab was..(gasp) $28. Go Figure.

Jim-Bob, Honey......get a gal that can add!!

Over priced – You can usually get a pool table here. Not usually crowded. Once we got kicked out around 10:30 because it was so slow they decided to close. Then we got our tab, and the pitcher was outrageous! We thought it was just a minimum card purchase, but it wasn't!
