    Has nearly 50 styles of Bourbon to choose from. Add that to 36 drafts, 80 bottled beers & comfort food classics like tequila, chile, & beer marinated wings with lime, & this just might be Man Heaven. Read more

    The deliciously prepared chicken sandwich is one of the best meals I've ever had — especially without the mayo and honey but with added pickles and their "K-BBQ" sauce. The best sauce I've ever had.

    Awesome lunch spot for the area. Personal favorite is the pato loco, a burrito with duck and pork belly. My coworkers ALWAYS get the friggin chicken sammy though. Also. Tots with siracha.

    Wasn't planning on including this place on my taco quest, but damn that Toro Furioso was good. The ahi tuna & potato tacos were also delicious.

    Gaze lovingly at their 77 tap-handle beer star while sampling 116 craft brews, like Arrogant Bastard, the Allagash Tripel, and the great seasonal Harpoon UFO Pumpkin, for the grown-up Charlie Brown. Read more

    If you're at the bar, ask for a suggestion and you'll get a nice tasting of a few beers you might like. The bartenders here are happy to find you something you like.

    Get a hard cider + a shot of Bison Grass vodka, pour the shot in the cider = apple pie. Prepare to have your mind blown.

    The brunch menu is unique and delicious. "Censored" is perfectly cooked pork belly and egg on the best grits I've ever had.

    Do yourself a favor and have the cast iron cornbread. Trendy, popular spot, great ambiance in the winter with the fireplace.

    The tuna tacos or KFCGH with pork belly Mac n Cheese can't be beat. It may be a bar, but it's the food that shines.

    Tater tots and chicken fingers are the best in the world. Also order "Shannon's Shandy" from the bar--cherry moonshine + lemonade!

    Grass-fed burger is great. Dining companion says pork items too salty. Awesome beer selection. Will definitely eat here again.

    The tacos are phenomenal. I'd recommend trying all three but if you're only going to get one get the Toro Furioso.

    The Toro Furioso taco is delicious, but use caution when biting into the chilli peppers; those things are NO JOKE!

    Toro Furioso taco: possibly the hottest fucking thing I've ever eaten, and I like spicy food. My ear canals were sweating.

    They DO NOT have soy milk for coffee. If you're a vegan who requires some, byo. Nice that there's a vegan brunch option, but pretty boring.

    No soy milk available... lots of lunch and brunch items are pre-made... even the tofu cuban?! Mushrooms were canned, tough and chewy. Waitress was nice but we waited forever to order. Food was quick!
