I have been to Jack “A’s” Chop Shop Saloon a few times and have always had a great time.  In addition to good food, they feature the cleanest restrooms of any place I have ever seen. You can also get breakfast anytime! Liquor, wine & beer are all served by the friendly staff at Jack A’s Chop Shop. While the inside is non-smoking, there is a front deck and a back deck for smokers.
