Don't miss the curry tomato soup or any of their burgers (namely the Bulgogi, Bibimbap or Hanoi burgers). THey just updated their menu, but still unsure if the new items will hold up against their classics (see above).

"Honest to goodness burgers with no frills and no ""deluxe = tomatoes+lettuce combo"" pitch. (Those things are SUPPOSED to be included on a burger and most people charge extra for it, but not here). Catch a beer while you're at it."

Bowling alley? Bars? Restaurant? Live musical acts? Get em all here. Be aware of cover charge in the evening as there are usually 2 live acts a night. Blue ribbon fried chicken is great with mashed potatoes and collard greens on the side.
