    I've only had the fish tacos and a grilled cheese sandwich but they were delicious, as I can only imagine that the rest of the menu is as well. If you're going to be at First Ave, then eat here first.

    I was not expecting much from a bar attached to a concert venue but the beer was at a great price and the seared steak tacos blew my mind (but not my wallet!)

    This is not your typical tavern. Fresh interesting food. Delicious. Turkey lettuce wraps are great.

    The Diamond Dog Corndog is outstanding. Runner up is the inside-out burger. Tots or sweet potato fries ftw!

    No matter what burger you get (and they are all good) make sure you pair them with SPF's. The Depot Tavern has amazing sweet potato fries.

    Good burgers and fries. Tricky to get a table since most folks are waiting for a show to start. Be patient...especially if you're hungry.

    Try the red bean and rice burger! I can't stop thinking about it! Tasty and filling. Also, go for the fries! Very vegan-friendly establishment.

    Killer happy hour prices. Grilled cheese is the perfect balance of buttery, cheesy and crunchy.

    Vegetarian or not, get the vegan duck tacos. And if you're really hungry add on sweet potato fries with the caramelized onion ketchup.

    Try the Diamond Dog - "They call them the diamond dogs." Hot dog wrapped in pepper bacon & deep fried, on top of pretzel bun.

    Voted Best Hot Dog by City Pages in 2012! If the Diamond Dog were a music act, it would be Lady Gaga- dressed to dazzle. At $9, it may be the most expensive dog in town, but it's well worth it."

    Poutine potato skins are an epic win! Also, why buy your First Ave tickets anywhere else? You get $1 in Depot Dollars for every ticket you buy.

    Try the Diamond Dog: a quarter-pound all-beef hot dog wrapped in pepper bacon and deep fried, served on a pretzel bun. Sounds like a heart attack, but its delicious.

    Great beer selection - try the Surly Furious. If you order the fried cheese curds, be sure to ask for all three dipping sauces - you'll have a tough time figuring out which is your favorite.
