A.C.’s is a no-frills watering hole known for its satisfying slate of late-night eats and a brunch that's an enduring staple of the downtown Sunday Funday. Locals may lament the steady price increase of the Beer of the Month special, but it’s hard to find such a solid deal on import and craft beer these days. The mushroom swiss burger is a juicy classic, while the cheesesteak heaps grilled onion, sautéed mushrooms, and hot and sweet peppers atop thin strips of steak on an Amoroso roll straight out of Philly. During Sunday brunch, the chicken and waffles are a perennial favorite while a variety of omelets and French toast concoctions abound. A.C.’s has multiple billiards tables for the pool sharks and a row of booths for groups of friends to crowd into, but whatever your scene, just don’t call it a hipster bar. —Angela Hanyak
