Another bar and grill addition to Hartz Avenue’s busy dining district, this automobile-themed eatery offers a casual atmosphere and food that goes well with beer. Danville native Justin “Norm” Walsh, whose resemblance to actor George Wendt (who played the amiable barfly Norm on Cheers), left Pete’s Brass Rail after seven years to open his own restaurant. Chef Jourdán Chauss’s simple menu offers a balance of fried appetizers (shrimp wontons, fries, rings) and low-carb options (grilled flatiron steak and a marinated pork chop). The half dozen salads and sandwiches are fresh and reasonably priced, and the menu claims to serve the biggest burger in town. Of the eight burgers on the bill, six are beef—there’s also turkey and vegetarian burgers. The heartiest plate—the shrimp pasta diablo—is available only after 5 p.m. Lunch and dinner daily.
