How would I colloquially translate "Sketchy"?

I overuse this word in english quite extensively, but my question is, when I want to say something is sketchy as in not good quality, nasty, etc...I know there are ways around saying something like "I wouldn't eat that chicken, it looks sketchy." como "No comería ese pollo, me parece mal/podrido," but I was wondering if there's a fun, colloquial word?

OR "That club is sketchy, don't go there." OR "That guy and I don't talk anymore, he never texted me back. I think he has a gf. Sketch...." That type of thing.

I have heard the word "tasca" for sketchy bar/dive. Es correcto?
