The Champ made with grilled roast beef, corned beef, baby Swiss, horseradish cheddar, sauteed red onion, banana peppers and Thousand Island dressing on toasted white bread is a favorite ($6.25 for a half sandwich, $8.25 for a full sandwich and $9.25 for a sandwich with more meat). The Hari Curry ($8.75) made with a grilled black bean burger with roasted tomato, red onion, red pepper, goat cheese and curry powder pressed on a garlic Tandoori Naan bread is probably my favorite vegetarian option.
They offer great soups and sides, plus there are B-movies playing behind the bar, some of the best sandwiches you could ask for including one of Dayton's best Ruebens and video games as far as the eye can see.
