It is an icon on the scene, it is a honkey tonk to the 3rd degree. The music was good and the drinks very reasonable! The bartender with a beard was fine to look at and the staff was pleasant. But, the bathroom, though usable...More

My hubby & I went to scope out the place early but went back to try tacos from the truck outside but on the property! They have live music inside & offer dance lessons. They also had outdoor area to drink & enjoy the tacos!

This place is awful if you want to listen to country music it's not that it's rockabilly don't go... there were hundreds of people waiting to dance and wanted to dance standing there staring at a band that sucked I think it was horrible.

The band was great, laid back atmosphere with an inclusive feel if you think you can't dance don't worry nobody was judging and they have lessons early in the evening. There were great dancers of all ages, they were all amazing.
