Only 5 taps a few bottles in the fridge (only 4 taps were on when I visited though). The beer condition was solid and the staff were very chatty, friendly and welcoming. The place is a little small but has a cozy stoner reggae vibe. The food was crack. The baby back ribs are serious. The best bbq I have had in Tokyo for sure. My only issues were the small tap selection and the smoking however when I was there it wasnít so noticeable. Go for the ribs...amazing.

Pretty small place so can fill up pretty quick, But have been lucky the few times Iíve been.
Beer, while "slightly" pricey has been fantastic. Big fan of the Gigantic Beers on offer. the food is a good match and the "Spicy" pulled pork sandwich is pretty damn good too. Location might be a little tricky but worth the walk and the hunt.

Cosy little BBQ joint with a nice open space in a quiet street towards Daikanyama. Reggae vibe, international crowd. 5 beers on tap, mostly recent US imports, served in 2 sizes. Prices on the high side considering the average selection, but friendly atmosphere can make up for it. Short but tasty BBQ menu including their popular baby back ribs. Smoker and pet friendly.

Quite rustic and packed on a Saturday. Reggae music, busy but attentive staff and lovely smokey smells. Food was very good, but tap list was only Shiga Kogen - still could do A LOT worse. Some bottles too - kind of random though. I prefer Bashamichiís smoked products, but then I can see where Tim is coming from too. Nice one- two with Nakameguro taproom.

Stopped in recently, even though this place has been around for almost three years. I was very surprised to see how many foreigners were there. More than 60%. Had the Pulled Pork Sandwich and it was awesome, but the other food looked much much better. The place was packed and two of us settled on one chair at the bar. Staff were really friendly and spoke English. Only five beers on tap and four were Shiga Kogen. Bottle selection was fairly random, but they seemed to try to get unique domestic and import stuff in. Nice vibe and very cozy. I am definitely going back, just to try the baby back ribs. Prices are average to slightly high. Reservations are highly recommended.
Directions - basically right between Nakameguro and Ebisu. The easiest approach is from Ebisu, where you follow the people out the JR west exit on to the main street in front of the station (you should an entrance to Hibiya subway line and a police box). Hang a left at the big street in front of the station and continue walking straight, eventually the road will go downhill and half way down the hill you will come to a place called Autobacs (Big Orange facade). Just before Autobacs hang a left down a side street that curves to the right. Walk about one minute and you will see it on the second floor of the building that is directly behind Autobacs. From Nakameguro, hang a right out of the station, walk straight until the first major traffic light (kinda awkward intersection). Hang a left at the intersection and start walking up the hill. You will see Autobacs on the right hand side of the street. Obviously coming from the opposite direction from Ebisu, you walk to the end of Autobacs and then hang a right.

A pretty small bar about a 10 minute walk from the Nakameguro station. It was pretty crowded the night I was there with about five others but they accommodated us very well. The beer was in really good shape, my Racer 5 was in top form. The food smelled great though I didnít have any. I wanted to try the BBQ they offered but it was too late for a meal and I would have missed my train. The staff was very helpful and spoke enough english to make our lives easier. Not a huge selection and nothing really out of the ordinary- prices might be a bit high, too. But the bar had a great feel to it and was very comfortable. Iíll be back.
