Went last night with my wife for a quick dinner.

Been forever since we last went there as it's a little out of the way for us. What a great cheap and flavorful dinner. No froo-froo stuff there...just a great neighborhood type place (similar to Santarpio's) that serves large portions, has execellent specials (like tripe soup) and it didn't bust our wallet.

We had app. of buff. wings, and entrees of chicken francaise, and steak tip/sausage w/onions and peppers combo. The steak fries were very tasty. Washed it down with a couple of Guiness. The atmosphere might not be for everyone (we enjoyed watching 3 older guys singing old Irish songs and drinking heavily) but if you don't mind a change from the more upscale places, this place is it. The waitresses are a hoot too.

We'll definitely try go more often now and recommed this place for a non-stressful dinner.
