Crockett's Lodge

Crockett's is on University Avenue in Star City, so it's a little far away from the main drag. Especially if you go there to drink. I wasn't interested in the downtown scene not too long ago, so a friend and I hit up Crockett's. There is parking around back, which I didn't know, so that was a plus. We walked in the front, showed our IDs and chose a booth.

Looking over the menu, one thing that looked different to me was the "cheese crisp," so I put in an order for that and a beer. I always thought of Crocketts as a more country bar, but when we were in there, they were playing pop songs. I was okay with this. This night, they had karaoke, which was beyond entertaining. The MC was pretty funny, too.

Our cheese crisp came out, which was a tortilla sprinkled with beef, tomatoes, banana peppers, olives and green peppers. It had sour cream and salsa on the side. It was pretty tasty - just like a quesadilla without the top tortilla. It was cut into triangles, so it was nice to pick at while we were drinking. Salty, crunchy, cheesy - perfect combo.

The atmosphere at Crocketts is so laid-back and relaxed; it's probably one of my first choices for a bar just because of that ambiance. And there are TVs everywhere for whichever sport you're wanting to watch. If you're looking to relax and have a good time, I'd recommend Crockett's.
