Great little place. Beers were very good. Plenty of board games, Jenga, Corn hole etc. We had a GIANT pizza delivered from NY Giant Pizza. Great place to spend a little time unwinding.

Rock bottom basic. You'll get your shoes dusty walking to the bar and the great sandwiches and tasty appetizers are served right from the resident roach coach on premises. But it's just a block from the ramps to Interstate 8 in La Mesa and it...More

This is such a great place to enjoy a nice sunny day. We loved being at the backside of the bar where they have a little "beergarden" area with some fake grass, benches, corn-hole and you are allowed to smoke. It's a nice place to...More

This place gets packed, so be prepared. The space around the bar, the tables out front, the tables tucked in the back...when we were there, there were people here-there-everywhere. It got a bit claustrophobic. The girls working the bar were friendly and helpful, but it...More
