A bar we love

The beer comes in boots, folks. Need we say more? If that doesn't convince you, maybe the food deals will. For perfect clarity, the food deals are B-A-N-A-N-A-S. Extravagant tacos are only a buck on Taco Tuesdays. And when we say extravagant, we mean things like "Chipotle Chicken & Bacon & Five Pepper Sausage" and "Black Bean & Corn & Chorizo & Fish." One single American dollar! On Wing Wednesdays, a pound of ginormous wings are — ludicrous, as I'm sure it sounds — only three American dollars. "For under $20, you can eat and drink like a FAT ROMAN," says Matthew U, on Yelp. It's dumpy, to be sure, as far as cosmetics are concerned. It's a windowless giant on the warning track of the Stockyards' outfield, but that's part of its charm. It's got like a million ballrooms -- great for big, lusty Bavarian weddings -- and recall, if all else fails, that the beer is served in boots. You can get a massive litre of Dunkel for $5. This place is old school (in the "Old World" way). It's laid back, low stakes, working class. It's the one place in town where lederhosen and a sombrero would actually make perfect sense.
