    Matt Diamond might've honed his chops at some of the Valley's best wine bars, but he decided to go with "ale house" instead, offering five craft brews (of 8) on tap, along with 20 bottles and cans. Read more

    The RB&C is consistently awesome--if you love horseradish challenges. Cash money also pretty cool. Can't wait for it to cool down, with Old Rasputin on tap!

    $2.50 pints during happy hour (tue-sun 11am-6pm mon 11am-11pm)!! the olives are on point. And the green chile stew is the perfect amount of spicy and delicious!!

    The cheddar & mild chiles combo didn't hit, at all. The bread w/ the MNC failed to heighten the experience. Pasta used was a bit overcooked. The presentation felt like I was at an office potluck.

    Had the calvano sandwich. Delicious if you like artichokes and a little spice from the peppers. And the salsa is always a great starter

    I enjoyed the food, great happy hours value. The only problem I had was that the acoustics were horrible. I could hardly hear the other people at my table.

    Travis · July 27, 2013
  • Jayson H.

    Cash money. Hands down. Starts out dark and jammy. Finishes with a hint of spice.

    Jayson Huddy · July 18, 2013
  • Brent P.

    Great atmosphere. Just feels comfortable whether sitting inside or out. Quesadillas are a knock out. Prices are decent. Overall, A+

    The Mindy's Mac and Cheese -- a sizable wedge of XL noodles and cheddar cheese, packed with mild green chiles, then baked and served with a side of crunchy bread, makes you feel immediately at home. Read more

    Get the jive turkey without jalapeño cream cheese and add their homemade chipotle mayo instead. You're welcome. Also, the owner makes sweet music mixes to play.
