I couldn't decide between The Hamburger Dog (with cheese, bent brick sauce, and relish) or the Buffalo Chicken Sausage (with carrots, celery, and blue cheese dressing), so I had both! Kind of strange that one comes on a bun and the other without, but there you have it. Either is worth ordering and, if you're like me, order some extra buffalo sauce with that option, which wasn't quite spicy enough for my taste. When Laima wavered about trying the Cocoa Braised Beef Cheeks (with sauerkraut, beets, and horseradish cream), our server (also the Bar Manager) told her that if Laima didn't like it, she'd eat it herself and bring something else for her to try. No worries there - while the cocoa didn't make much of an appearance, the beef was to her liking and beets are always good to include.

Inventive and fun menu, mostly locally sourced, along with a good craft beer and wine list make this a great place to go for either a romantic dinner or to impress someone without being snooty.
The pre-made old fashioneds are great.

Try the cocktails, all of them. They are unique and each fantastic in their own way. They have 8 different house made sodas too, available virgin or with vodka, gin or whiskey. Great happy hour menu.

You should try the home made sodas, lavender is my favorite. Food is also amazing. Gluten free friendly.

Great Slabtown Sour (ginger rum, lemon, pineapple, allspice). Tasty gazpacho served w/ savory tomatillo & gin ice cream. For dessert, try the xocolatl de davíd cake with bourbon glaze.
