When I first walked into Durty Nelly's I have to admit I was a little apprehensive. It definately looks a bit seedy. However, I ordered a sandwich and it was quite tasty. There were flies buzzing around the counter, which I didn't particularly care for, but I guess that's what happens when you leave doors open during the summer. I also have gone here for a beer, and I enjoyed it for a short visit. This was definately a "local" place, with mostly middle-aged people, but it had a nice feel to it, with a band and some people dancing. However, I got bored after one drink.
I know the seediness is part of the atmosphere of the place, but I can see why it's called "Durty" Nelly's. Nothing too dirty where I wouldn't eat or drink there again, but if I do, I'd rather do take-out so I don't have to see flies buzzing around my food.
