Dirty Dog Bar
505 E 6th St
Dirty it is indeed but decent prices and sometimes good live music keeps me coming back. Kind of a biker bar mixed with a dive.

This place is definitely a hidden gem. There's always really good live music and a little food table in the back - usually beans, rice & chips. It's a really laid back place and fun to go on Fridays
