Rack-em-up does not experience anywhere near the same level of issues found in many other venues. This is partly because we do not over serve & mostly because the majority of our customers are well behaved. The atmosphere at Rack-em-up is a happy relaxed vibe. You can relax and feel safe when you are at Rack-em-up.
