Visited here last night. Iíd had this on my list of places to go for quite some time. I clearly didnít remember that they were the sister restaurant to Galaxy Hut, as my girlfriend told me from looking online while we were en-route. The place is in a very small shopping center, with what looks like a used record store next door. Not a lot of parking in front, and Iím not sure where there is any other convenient parking aside from over by Mad Fox, which is a block or two down and across the street.

The place is relatively small, but perhaps slightly bigger than the inside of Galaxy Hut. They are upfront about the different sizes available (4, 9, 16oz), which is nice. No need to ask about sample sizes. You order from the bar, like at Galaxy Hut, so expect to stand up if you sit at a booth each time you want something to drink.

Clientele had lots of vegetarians and vegans were there, or at least seemed to be there the night I visited. Very eclectic assortment of people. No that thereís anything wrong with that, they were all just a little odd. Very nice, just odd.

The beer selection was nice on draft, a few locals I hasnít had or hadnít had in some time, which was nice. Bottle list isnít as impressive, but with the number of taps available, there isnít really a need to grab a bottle.

The "totchos" were okay, but we ordered a small, and Iím not sure if they gave us a large or if the small is just that huge, but it was way too filling. One complaint is that they may have been a little overdone - a touch too crispy, but otherwise entirely edible. Everyone raves about them, but I think, as Donnie says in his review, theyíre definitely not house made.

The place shines with their grilled cheese menu. Very well made, very tasty, and an infinite combination of ingredients make it a place Iíll likely return to frequently.

Nice small craft bar in Falls Church, seems to be the only in the area with a good amount of different microbrewery offerings. 25 or so drafts available in 4, 9, and 16 ounce pours, along with recently added 16 ounce pours to go in mason jars with a $1 deposit. Small amount of tables/booths behind the bar area, all ordering is done at the bar. Food is good, grilled cheeses/melts and salads, but donít seem to be house-made, tots are definitely of the frozen variety like Ore Ida though theyíre at least deep fried. Theyíve also recently added poutine tots which may be a special, but you can also get "totchos" with your choice of toppings, basically tater tot nachos. Very small parking lot but there is street parking available. Iíve only gone around opening hours so parkingís never been an issue there.

Gourmet grilled cheese restaurant with nice craftbeer selection. 24 taps, maybe 20 bottles. Industrial/modern decor. Very friendly staff. Stopped in at 5:00pm opening and barkeep was very informative and helpful. 4oz tasting are nice, but you pay for it.

Checked it out thanks to rateBeer. I hear it is the same ownership as Galexy Hut. Very friendly straightforward industrial and a little urban. I counted 24 taps and not many bottles. Had a great Rueben sandwich. You can get sampples if a little pricy. 6/26 this is the second time I have had beer served with a distinct bleach odor. A beer bar really should do a better job. It was early so it was not like it was a rush.

Trendy neighborhood bar featuring 24 taps of high quality brews from Green Flash, Breckenridge, Epic, North Coast, Bells, Founders, etc. Available in 9 oz goblets, which is a plus.. A not so impressive bottle list of a dozen or so, including a few Belgians. Had one Left Hand nitro tap, which was quite special. Also have cask events. Worth a visit.
