So what is a dive bar?

Good food cheap prices, lots of history, friendly like your part of the family atmosphere. Well an article I read written by, Tom Jackman on the talked about one of his favorite dive bars that closed down on January 1st and he was looking to explore the places in Northern Virginia that are also dive bars.

What he defines is a dive bar is, 1) No kids. 2) Decent jukebox. 3) Inedible food just to name a few.  So my mission in 2013 is to explore all of the dive bars in the area!

So what is a dive bar in your opinion? What bars in the Sioux Empire would you recommend?
