Outside, a smiling, six-foot fiberglass pig beckons—apparently unaware that, inside, his porker brethren are being doled out for free in the form of glistening hot dogs, gas-station food-mart style. The huge selection of beers (including house brand Rudy’s Red Ale), the strong $3 well drinks and the rock-and-blues-heavy jukebox bring together khaki-clad office types and grizzled neighborhood regulars. Don’t bother asking for a fancy cocktail—it ain’t that kind of place.
