McFarland's Crapp's Tap lives up and down to its name.  The small bar seems to be firmly planted in the Sconnie bar camp with its pool table, electronic wall mounted internet-based jukebox, its gray market betting opportunities and amusement machines, and its narrow ranged menu.  The lady bartender took no crap from anyone which is a nice touch, but one wonders why, at midday, she'd need to?

The burger and sandwich were fine and in of themselves, though the low-grade of potato chips that come with it would make even the chippiest connoisseur Ruffle. The buns were whole wheat and better than standard and were nicely toasted, but the burgers came out a little more done than we'd like. The cheese and the outlook are both American. There were two mustard presented but only one had the gunk cleaned out such that it could be poured.

If Crapp's is your local, we mean no disrespect.  It just felt like it was a little too, too for us this time.  That said, they have a nice old building and a cool website.
