Whether you sit out front in the porch swing or inside on a stool in this unabashedly dive-y dive bar, you’ll never get an impression that you’re anything but welcome just as you are. Order the Champagne of beers, Miller High Life, or a Pabst Blue Ribbon tallboy. There’s nothing special about this place, which, somehow, makes it altogether special.
