    Where do I even begin with Jolly. My ALL-time favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor! I will miss it so much now that I've graduated. Truffle fries are a MUST. Only annoyance: no reservations or call ahead.

    The beer sampler is a great chance to try all their beers. Pizza is a great price for two people to split & the bacon they use is delish. The rosemary truffle fries are my favorite fries ever.

    One of the best souring houses around. Make sure you have time to sample a few beers because they are tasty. The food is also good gastropub style fair.

    Separate waiting lists for upstairs and downstairs, but same menu -- be sure to put your name on both, since wait times often vary quite a bit.

    Truffle fries are to die for. Also, you can't go wrong with a place that locally sources ingredients!

    The chocolate stout is great. If you're vegan or otherwise dairy free, the soy cheese on the pizza is awesome, too.

    Don't go for the happy hour as your wallet won't leave happy. Do go for the food and your tummy will be very happy.

    Truffled fries are a must. They favor sour beers but the Biere de Mars is a refreshing and tasty one even if you dont dig on sour.

    Noel is great no matter how close or far from Xmas you are. La Roja is just plain solid. Try 'em both.

    They have some veggie options, their sandwiches are good. Skip the steak frites, they put the steak over the fries and ruin the fries. The beer is too warm. The polenta fries are NOT good.

    I can highly recommend the "Carnivore" pizza. That 130 year-old starter for the sour dough is fantastic.

    Fair warning, the Red Chili Tofu sandwich is only a little less greasy than a stick of butter.
