t0rin0 (1516) Do Not Resuscitate, California | September 25, 2013
Visited February 2012.
This is one of the few brewpubs in town so there wasn’t much choice really. This is a large restaurant but mostly a bar where people go to watch games. There is a good size parking lot out front which helps. Inside the beers are not very impressive and neither is the food. I guess there is nothing really wrong with the food but the beers are all overly sweet and not enjoyable. They also don’t seem to rotate the taps very often so I’d bet that you can go once a year if you are just looking to try something new.
This is a huge sports bar, with TVs everywhere. The service was prompt but kinda unfriendly, but the waitress had a rudimentary knowledge of beer, and attempted to tell me what a Maibock is. There is a fairly wide selection of house beers, and a short, but good, bottle list. They sell all the basic macrobrews, and push them hard. The food is basic bar food, and passable. The beer is all well priced, including the house beer. Overall, a fun place, but not exactly a beer lovers bar.
Not bad but if you’re looking for quality micros, keep looking. If you’re looking for ticks, stop by- you’ll have about 10 by the time you leave. Food is above average, service was fine. Not a destination place unless, of course, you’re a-tickin’. Met bhops here, thus proving he is NOT someone’s alter ego.
The Trifecta of bad. Bad food, bad service, really bad beer. The food is so substandard. The kind of stuff you would expect to find off a highway exit in the Midwest next to McDonalds. Yeah, like Big Boy. Service is ridiculous. My last trip in I actually sat at the bar for nearly an hour with a growler in front of me. No bartender, no manager, no one came to help me. Which was actually a blessing, since the beer is horrible. The Porter and the Big Red IPA can be acceptable when you are visiting a friend and all they have is Bud. But otherwise, this is not very good.
All that being said, the atmosphere of this place is "Strike Four". Dark, dingy, in desperate need of both a remodel and some windows. If you want to hit a Humperdink’s Brewpub, the openness and windows of Humpie NW Hwy, and also in Arlington at least make for an airy, more pleasant surrounding. No matter how many 2 for 1 entree coupons they send me, I have only been there once - and I am only about 2 miles away.
Decent brewpub that has a nice bottle list in addition to their own beers on tap. The food is nothing special, but is at least average and is standard restaurant fair: burgers, chicken fried steak, wings, etc... The beer ranges from not good at all to slightly above average and there are cheap growlers and samplers available. A nice place to watch a game.
Nice food, lovabley stupid staff. Brought me the wrong burger. Not bad atmosphere, for watching a game. NCAA Texas vs. Memphis, therefore this place was packed. Beers were decent and very well prices, 5.50 for 8 beers. Decent food, ok beer.
Quite good food, the burger was great. Beers offered other than there own were the bassic macros. The beer they had was decent, but not up to BJ’s level. They sign said that they still had there abbey seasonal, but they were out. Stay away from the Chile beer. Good prices on beer, food was better, but a bit higher priced. Fine sports bar/restaurant overall.
