    Perfect place to go after you've been fit for a 5 year old child, which is perfect, imo! Good vibes and cheap. Def going back next time I visit SF.

    Trailer park themed bar with fun cocktails and snacks and absolutely zero pretension. Come here after a show at DNA Lounge.

    The 32 oz Miller High Life drinks are what this place is about. Come on Sunday night for karaoke. Friday and Saturday are amazing. DFMO central.

    Avoid the drink they make that has Dr Pepper (??) in it. This is a fun place to have a couple beers.

    Sunday Karaoke night is always awesome! Be prepared for the most variety karaoke song requests, which is great because you can sing almost any song you want.

    Met some interesting people here and got some Jell-O shots and free popcorn one night. They were streaming accident videos of people doing stunt videos.

    The bar may be a stereotype but, the clientele isn't. What a mix of people. The MashUp (usually Thursday) DJ is the shit. Best bar concept ever. Embrace the Butter!

    Butter is perfect for SF residents and visitors alike with its unconventional theme, strong drinks and quite large microwavable food menu. It is always an experience.

    Amazing dive bar in SF - order the jello shots, fried twinkies, tater tots, and popcorn!

    Great spot for thirty-somethings who want to listen to the songs they grew up with. The later it gets the sloppier it gets.

    The drinks are subpar and they usually have a cover on the weekends. Good for "white trash" food like mini corn dogs and tater tots.

    Oh man...this bar is kinda bar... I came here for the 80's and 90's music theme and it had my jam !!! From the outside, it doesn't look much and the neighborhood itself looks pretty sketchy...

    Hilarious and fun. Get a Tiki Trash (Hawaiian Punch & coconut rum) and an order of jalapeno poppers. Dance the night away. - Kellie, Community Manager

    A great dance spot that's been around for almost 20 years. Again, so happy to see it's still rockin'.

    If you liked those 80′s white trash films, full of Jello shots, tater tots, bad tattoos and worse hair then you will love this place!

    Kind of great white trash. The snacks in the old rv are ridiculous. A place where it seems perfectly de rigeur to hold a friend's hair while she vomits in the bathroom.

    If tater tots aren’t your thing (you must be crazy), check Chairman Bao’s Twitter feed before going; if you’re lucky they’ll be parked nearby. Read more

    For best results, try to get here when there is a bachelorette party.

    Deep fried Twinkie tastes like French Toast. Garnished with mini marshmellows, strawberry sauce & sprinkles, this dish begs for a double Goose & Soda to wash it down.

    Any bar that sells 40's is good in my book. This place also has great mixed drinks and a weird white trash sheek vibe to it.
