    55555 by Rick T


  • Elizabeth KIt took the literally 25 minuets to get me my takeout fries behind the bar. When they finally decided to hand them to me the bartender rolled his eyes at me. Get it together stellas!

  • Roadie 5.Great place to meet up with friends!

    55555 by Roadie 5.


  • Nathan mHad the hot stuff burger. If you like your burgers spicy, this one is for you.

    55555 by Nathan m


  • Henry AIt's a shame, they've started carding for entrance, whether it's for drinking or even just ordering a burger. They're off our list of places to take friends when they visit.

    55555 by Henry A


  • Shawn MGreat Burgers and Fries. Old School Video Games are great too.

    55555 by Shawn M


  • John DGo to hop cat. Better burgers, better beer, and better fries. And it's owned by the same folks, so it's got a good vibe.

    55555 by John D


  • Andy KAbsolutely love stellas. The punch is great. Burgers are fantastic. I love the shows on tv but have never played the games.

    55555 by Andy K


  • Johnnie W.Was ignored for 10min after we were sat by the hostess. Maybe because I was with my daughter and I told them I wasn't drink because I was driving. I'm very disappointed.

    11111 by Johnnie W.


  • Forrest J.Don't cause any trouble. Order your drinks and get out!

    33333 by Forrest J.

    33333 by Marvin

    33333 by Mary Motta


  • Jordan JPBR 😍 & chronic fries

    55555 by Jordan J

    55555 by Jen F.


  • Jessica RussellWe love this place. Awesome retro atmosphere & best burgers & bar food. BUT when they're BUSY & they have a backroom bar w/booths & tables for WAITING ONLY that's BS. We'll leave if not seated soon.

    55555 by Jessica Russell

    33333 by athena b.


  • Cate G.The bartenders here are always HUGE pricks. I think that's part of the, uh, charm? I still keep coming back because the burgers, the sangria, and the free retro dance parties cannot be beat.

    55555 by Cate G.


  • Lindsey A.Stuffed tots are the whip!!!' And pretty much the whole menu!!! Yummy

    55555 by Lindsey A.

    33333 by Matt G.

    33333 by Kristin W.


  • Trevor G.Pro tip: The napkins are pretty straight forward in being of bar/tavern type construction. Nice and sturdy enough with no frills simplicity. 10/10 Would wipe mouth again.

    33333 by Trevor G.

    33333 by Mary H.

    55555 by Jennifer D.


  • Danielle P.Food was good, but had a silly problem with the drinks and bleach-blonde manager-bartender was awful about it. Cool atmosphere, but too dark and the music was too loud. Excellent burgers.
