The Triple Lindy
We had it on good authority from Mike that the Triple Lindy was a dive bar worth a visit. How fun was it that Mike happened to be there the day we came in? Even though he was super kind to get our drinks, our opinion cannot be bought (at least not that cheap). But all joking aside, Mike is right, this place is great. And given the dearth of dive bars in this part of town, The Triple Lindy gives westside locals a place to call their own.
It’s a cozy space with almost a below street level vibe, plus a large covered patio area streetside. It’s always a good sign when you’re greeted with a prominent fryer aroma – smells like…victory.
Seth behind the bar set us up with some good drinks and I forgot to note number and quantity of taps again, dang. Scotty was manning the kitchen and the Italian Grinder he put out was firing on all cylinders.
Despite having had eats at 2 other places earlier in the day, we still found room for that delicious sandwich and would eat it again. The poppers were perfectly fried with an extra crispy, crunchy exterior.
No video poker machines is always a welcome if rare phenomenon in these parts, but there are board games available here for the luddites who require more entertainment beyond your basic eatin’ and drinkin’.
Would we travel across town to visit The Triple Lindy? Probably not. But if this spot was in our neighborhood, we’d happily join the ranks of happy regulars like our man on the street, Mike.
