Located right across from Red Line North and Clyburn stop this place is easy to get to... As a plus we were able to walk right in on a Friday night and get a table. The place is spacious with tables, booths, and high tables. The bar has a chalkboard menu with prices, looks kind of cool. They had about 15 beers on tap with another 20 or so bottles. The beer is all low to mid shelf craft, nothing that blew me away but nice Chicago stapes of Alpha King and Daisy Cutter that you can always enjoy. There is a nice touch of a coaster sized menu that offers slightly in depth descriptions of the beer, would be useful for new beer people... The food has interesting combinations of burgers with several types of fries and fry dipping sauce that are great. I highly recommend the truffle fries and sweet potato fries. Iím not a burger guy so sadly the non-beef selections are pretty half assed and donít sound nearly as good as the burger comboís. For someone like me, almost felt like there wasnít anything for me to eat. The food was good overall though. However, it was way too pricey, $50 bucks for 2 sandwiches and 2 beers.
If youíre a big burger person Iíd come here to eat and youíre able to grab a decent beer as a bonus. For non burger lovers in your party or a more beer selection head to Kumaís.
