With red-leather banquettes and comfort food like pimento grilled cheese sandwiches, this place has as much in common with a retro diner as it does a dive. But a jukebox, pool table, old-school video games and 47 beers in cans hammer home the watering-hole theme. The crass phrases decorating the walls (the front sign recently broadcast: "There’s a new bitch in town. Come fill up on Ethyl’s!") seem to somehow relate to the dive-bar pathology, too, though hell if we know how or why.
