Great "beef on wick" with our jou, pickle, fries, and hot homemade like horseradish. Funky monkey lights and Trident hanging lights set the college atmosphere and make this a great place for lunch and a craft beer.

As far as I can tell, there is metered parking on the street. Those spots may be all taken -- at some times of the day or week.
