This western-style bar, brother to Capitol Hill's beloved Linda's Tavern, is a good place to share a pitcher, but be warned that it's almost always crowded. When you get hungry, a menu of specialty burgers awaits, including the After School Special, topped with peanut butter and bacon (!). Also: skee-ball and a humongous patio.
