Humuhumu’s description:
A popular bar with live music and no cover, Burt's has lots of kitschy decor, but not a lot of actual tikis. There does not appear to be any connection between this Burt's Tiki Lounge and the Burt's Tiki Lounge in Salt Lake City.

So... this place is ok. I was a bit taken off guard when I walked in and they were playing "Country Music." Not that I mind... just a bit confused (then it is Albuquerque NM!).

Yes the place is very Kitschy and more surf-like then tiki-esque. And not many tikis at all. It is so confusing that a patron at the bar sitting next to me actually asked if they poured Mai-Tai's. Doh! I almost thought it was a gay bar... All guys huddled up in the booths and several butch women huddled up in opposite booths. I was a bit early and it straightened out before I left.

The waitress around the corner at "the Library bar and grill" said that Tuesdays were the best but that it was kind of "Hippy." When I pressed her on "hippy" she said they were a "young hippy crowd." My only thought is 'ouch' and that hippies suck. I can say that cause I once was one... in the early 70's (guess I just dated myself!).

Bottom line: Kitschy but fun with CHEAP BEER!

I didn't have high hopes for Burt's but we actually really liked it. We went on a Friday night and they were to open at 8:30pm. We showed up at 8:35. Had the whole bar to ourselves. It was tiki and kitchy. Not your classic chill tiki bar but more of a rocker lounge tiki bar. Drinks where served in actual tiki mugs and had fun looking at all the decor.

We didn't stay for the bands and had a good time. I could see this bar being a ring of hell later in the night but our experince was good. Drinks were fine though one bite of the pineapple had me put it aside and caution my husband against partaking in it.
