We visited the Vertskebap in Spring, Texas on July 1, 2015 at the recommendation of a co-worker. A gentleman by the name of Cederick took our order and also offered great suggestions regarding the sauces, etc to put on our meal to enhance the experience. Everyone including Cederick was super friendly and all three of us, my wife, myself and our son, all voted 5 out of 5 stars and a definite new restaurant on our palate of dining choices. The food is fresh, wholesome, and is healthy. Lots of fresh vegetables, the meat choices come in beef, lamb and chicken and the sauces are made homemade they said every day, right in the store. A definite recommend, you have to try it - you will be hooked.

Same crowd, same fat British guy from the efficiency apartments, same dried-up cancerous bar tender, same convicts, same Mount Marley, same Strange Brew, same dart games, same chubby chasers, same everything.But those Big A beers for $3.00 hit the old Spatten.This is not a classy joint,; but they did re-do the bathrooms a few years back.Saw a chick wet her pants, and another light matches on her silicone jobs for all to see. Can see the drug dealers at Food Town the next day shopping with their grandma.Get lost in the Time Machine, be a faithful patron. Don't get too crazy, you too might climb Mt. Marley...
I first visited RIPCORD in 2001. I've seen it go through a few phases. Some better than others. Fortunately, the new managment has done a great job of bringing the gay bar into a new era of masculinity along with renovated bathrooms, a new paint job, wide range of events, cheap drinks, and friendly bartenders.RIPCORD is a gay bar usually full of 23-55yo men (Bears, Daddy's, Cubs, Twinks) and their LGBTQIA friends. The patio is the largest of all the gay bars in the Montrose and is synonymous with a fun and friendly bears.Basically, a laid back bear bar with pool, darts, and great music.
Bimbo's is a great dive bar. Cheap drinks, friendly service, friendlier people. Crazy "decor" of strange stuff all over the place. Went on a Saturday, the place was packed but still enough room to move around. It's a small club and it has some seating outside. The DJ kept the dance floor full (mostly women) when customers weren't singing Karaoke. Interesting mix of younger and older crowd. Anyone would fit in. Not for the trendy, exclusive type, for sure. Great mixed drinks and your standard beer selection. 1 pool table and that's about it. All you need for a great dive bar.
So I've been coming to this bar for years. RIPCORD has made some great improvements over the last few months, including drink specials, staff and decor. It's a a far cry from the RIPCORD of the past, but still a great place to meet old friends, new friends and the occasional play thing. You can always find what you are looking for. Great cruising bar...Yummm! Has a great patio, events like 80s night on Friday's and strip pool on Mondays. The bartenders Rock and are sometimes Rock Hard!
