***** (5 stars)
A great little dive bar with excellent food and 16 beers on tap.
The place is really small, but there are also some larger tables on the back porch.
The Gnar-BQ Taco was a nice portion of savory shredded pork offset by crisp, tangy slaw.
The Grown Up Grilled Cheese combined cheddar, Swiss and goat cheese with bacon, but the real highlight was thin, crisp apple slices. It was perfectly grilled. I had it as “Mom’s Special”: a half sandwich with a side salad. The blue cheese dressing is VERY chunky.
It’s nice that their tap beers are available in half portions so you can try more. Service was friendly.
