Skull Entrance to Bar

The skull entrance to the bar/restaurant is neat, along with the other restaurant decor, and the food is amazing! Definitely worth a trip, especially if you have time to stop for lunch. It is 18+ and it is a smoking friendly establishment.

Cartoon hypno skull.

The Vortex Skull

The Vortex is a restaurant with a giant skull for the entrance. The inside is covered in biker and car memorabilia and the waitresses are intentionally a little rude. It's cool to see and a great place to eat!
