Add in some warm shaving cream and ridiculously low prices for a razor shave and it is all too easy to understand why people keep coming back here. Be prepared for a wait as this popular shop only takes walk-ins and refuses appointments. The popularity is for good reason: a traditional top-notch shave for $13 is pretty tough to beat.
