This tavern is in a huge old house. I drive past there a lot and am curious about it. Anyone try this place?

    New sign is up but the traffic is so bad when I go past that I can only get a quick glance. MaBarkers? Doesn't seem right. Anyone know what's up with this location?

      It's called McGurks, but doesn't appear to have opened yet.

        It's "MaGerks" and it's a few location chain out of Maryland that plans to offer real Philadelphia cheesesteaks which should be interesting.

      it's closing the end of this week. They do have great buffalo chicken sandwiches so if you have a chance stop in and try one. Other than that typical bar food

        Definitely more of a college kid hangout than a real restaurant. I have not been there in years, but at night it is your typical loud, crowded, dirty college type bar. I did love it back when I was 20!

          I've been there a few times, but never to eat. We stopped for a couple of drinks and some bar snacks. I have no idea whether it's still open.

            I went there for a few work parties and the food was terrible.

              I think it's closed. I saw a liquor license application on the door.

                Dang. I pulled into the parking lot yesterday and there were cars, but maybe the cars belonged to people working on the place or something.
