Fried pickles; tater tots; hot dog; burger.
As with many a great bar, the kitchen relies heavily on the fryer, turning out battered pickle spears ($4) and crunchy tater tots ($3.50). Hot dogs ($5) are from Wisconsin brat king Usinger’s, and you can get your half-pound burger ($8) topped not just with the usual cheddar but with blue cheese or provolone. The beer list is replete with Belgian blonds, thick English ales, and stateside microbrews. And there’s PBR and Michelob for the true dive lovers.
Open Monday through Thursday for dinner, Friday through Sunday for lunch and dinner.
