This place get's a five star from me. It is the quintessential NJ blue collar bar - a dying breed. If you are a regular at an Applebee's somewhere (not that there's anything wrong with that), this is not the place for you. But if you like a joint with character, this is it. Cold beer, shots, great food and pool tables in the back. And here is the really cool thing - there is pizza place right next door. If you order pizza, that's where it comes from. But wait, that's not all. Physically conjoined with the bar - that means you can walk through from one to the other without going outside - is the Dunellen Theater, showing one film at a time. My cousin took me to see Prince Valiant there in 1957. Seriously. I've been there when someone came into the bar, got a picher of beer and brought it into the theatre. How cool is that? I think you can even bring pizza and other food into the theatre.
Almost forgot - Brandy new, upscale bathroom. No kiddin' Don't you spend a fair amount of time in a bar's bathroom? I do.
Ate the Italian hot dog, drank the beer, bought the T-Shirt. Go there!
Ignore the one star rating. Don't you usually do that if it's the only one?

Looks like a typical Jersey bar but they do great ""bar fare"". From the best buffalo wings to pastas and steaks to thin crust pizzas. You can eat al fresco OR next door at the Dunellen Theater (the best bargain- 2 movie tickets, 1 pizza, and 1 pitcher of beer/soda for under $25). People come from neighboring towns for the best and cheapest drinks around. Warning: If you do eat outside, service can be a little slow.
