Drove halfway across Albuquerque so we can have a cold beer and have the dogs with us.
We sat on the patio. Nice atmosphere, very friendly.
Our server was quick to greet us, even though we were the only ones outside when we got there. (A couple more tables joined us later; it was still early).
Since this was why we came, beer first: Slightly disappointed that there weren’t more local beers on the menu but surprised to see both Shiner and Rolling Rock. My wife had the Isotopes Blonde and I had the Marble IPA - both excellent choices.
Tapas: Blue cheese fondue was flavorful, but I expected more than blue cheese crumbles melted into queso. The grilled basil mushrooms and artichoke hearts were a joke - they might have been grilled at some point but tasted like cold marinated canned mushrooms and artichokes.
We enjoyed the beer and atmosphere, and the food was edible if not good. Doubt we’ll come back.
