Restaurant Notes
  • "home of the tacky ashtray" (drinks are traded for ashtrays brought in by customers..the tackier the ashtray, the better choice of drink)
  • roadside bar where removal of asbestos shingles off the building revealed large, vibrantly colored, hand-painted advertisements from the 1940's
  • eccentric exterior & interior decor...even bar stools' legs resemble people's legs
  • menu changes all the time (call to see what's available)
