This bar is Great! – I am no sure when the people below me visited this bar. I have been going there for a few months now and have gone to the chicken previously before then and I have never had a problem there. The bartenders are really nice, the beer is cold and not over priced, and everyone is friendly. I am a friendly person so by the end of the night I am sure that I will meet you. This place is not full of addicts and losers with bad attitudes or more importantly DRAMA. This bar is full of down to Earth people. But if you are looking for addicts and losers I suggest you go to The Wooden Nickle or The Music Room. Those types of people practically live there!
not for the meek or faint of heart – Not for Posers, Rubs or Wannabes. You can stay at Cooks. Beer is cold and the crowd is low life. Be afraid be very afraid.
Leave the training wheels at home. – Somebody wrote that this place give Bikers a bad name! I got news for ya- most of the people i know perfer that the general population consider us bad. It serves us well and them better, cut me off in traffic and you better hope i need to stop for gas- there are more than a few cars with my foot print in there door. As for the place being dirty, there is an old joke "What is the difference between a hoover and a harley?" Answer "With the Hoover the Dirt Bag is on the inside." If i come back from Vegas after blasting down I-15 in hundred degree heat, i dont want anybody complaining about the smell or the fact that i got about 300 miles of dirt on my face. As far as comments about the patrons and staff, I find them to be very friendly and well mannered but then again i am not looking down my nose at anyone comming up from my suburban overprice McMansion. If you don like the place i can only say one think DILLIGAF, and Moreover, "If I have to explain you would not understand." If you don;t like the place to the point of writing a ditriabe about its faults and how much you wish the patrons, staff and management should either be consumed by fire, otherwise die or move away, you have more problems than they have and quite frankly DCIYS.
True biker bar – This bar is a run down gritty dirty place, and its absolutley BEAUTIFUL!!!! This is what biker bars used to be. It's out in the middle of nowhere and just the ride out there is worth it. There isn't a starbucks next door so the guys who ride 15 miles and call themselves bikers may not enjoy it. No Applebees here. Everything about this bar was great. This was my 1st experience and defintaley won't be my last. I even went the next day for the bikini bike wash! From the dollars stapled all over the walls, the bike fender mounted, the wooden bar stools, to the neon v twin beer sign and flat screen HD tv showing the game. I had a great experience and the bartenders were very friendly. Treated me like I was a regular. Wasn't super packed so getting a beer wasn't a mission. The only drawback was that they don't serve hard liquor. Beer and wine only. But the atmosphere and hospitality were great. The inside is a little small, but opens up outside in the back. If bikers wanted to be inside all the time, we would drive cars. They have a big patio and even a horseshoe game area. They sponser great charities and even have a bikini wash on occassion(the gals were hot). It may be 100 degrees outside, but the beer was nice and cold doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I really enjoyed myself and would recommend this place to all my true biker friends.
Historical Route 66 – This is in responce to the two so called bikers. The Screaming Chicken has been in Devore for 25 yrs. It's an old gas station from the early 40's. On route 66. Of course it's not going to be the most cleanest bar you ever been to. IT'S A BIKER BAR. If you were a real biker you would understand. We have from cross road bikers to passing thru bikers. We have people come from all around the world to see our bar, and put their dollar on the wall. We have concerts, fund raisers for women and children in need. We are having our 2nd annual breast cancer fund raiser July 26. Now tell me we're all that bad. Shame on you. Maybe you should take your moped to Chucky Cheese. Or if you find it in your heart to not take so much of your time putting people down. You could help us with our fund raisers. Thank you for visiting. Hope to see you soon. Management
Dirty Dirty – Never have I been in a dirtier bar and I'm not talking about the floors. Dirty employees with no class whatsoever. This hole gives bikers a bad name. (I've been riding for years) The bartenders are hidious and look like they haven't slept or eaten for days. Once was enough for me. The patrons of this bar need to go back home to Mommy! Maybe the owners should think of relocating....I'd quit drinking if this was the only bar around. Absolutely the joke of Devore
Ugly Bartenders – Ok to stop for a beer, it's the only place around! Patrons not friendly, bartenders scummy, place is dirty and stinks. Been by there a half dozen times over the last few months, don't think I'll be back. Hopefully it burns down with the scummy locals that inhabit it.
Ok once – OMFG, What a shithole. I like bikers, I have been riding a '62 pan for 20 years, and the one time I was there when the Vagos were there was ok. The other few times it was a dirty shithole with dopefiend bartenders. Man, I have a friend in Devore who is embarrased this place has the Devore name associated with it. No Class, Dirty, and Juvenile patrons.
