Friday night, and I walk through the front door of the Anchor bar in hopes of good food and a couple of beers to pre-game for the night. (Mind you I am 22) This is the first time I have been here, and I immediately notice the cluttered and crowded nature of this speak-easy looking, hole in the wall of a bar. There is a mixture of all sorts of people there; old, young, college, rich, poor, really poor. I confidently lead my group of comrades towards the last empty table at the end of the bar, making sure to smile at the extremely attractive blond in a tight vest who seems relatively content in the center of the action. We sit, wait for a couple of minutes and the waitress comes. The waitress. God bless her in all her wonderous majesty. She is the much needed messiah of waitstaff that is reincarnated from truck stop cafe's and old school dive bars that I so adore. She does NOT take sh@$. So don't give her any, don't even try. We order, and the beer and the food comes relatively fast. While enthralled with my infatuation for the waitress, I never could have imagined I would fall in love twice in one night. The burger was nothing short of breathtaking, and I sat their with only the vain hope that my impossibly overworked taste buds could even comprehend a sliver of the goodness this burger possessed. The meal was all around amazing, and extremely cheap (40 $ for 5 ppl) And when I stopped at the bar to pay my bill, I was in such a state of bliss that I figured, why not get a little more out of tonight? I struck up a conversation with the cute blond, who was thrilled that a good looking younger person was hitting on her, (God bless old creepy people) and she agreed to leave with me and my buddies to go bar hopping. Simply amazing, falling in love three times in one night...no I'm just kidding, I'm only calling two of the three back after our lover's tryst and I'll give you a hint, it's not the one who left silver stilettos at my apartment. Gotta love it. Anchor bar.
Pros: Great food, real people, easy going
Cons: kinda crowded, not alot of tables,
