Good greasy food. Decent selection of some craft brew, but $1-$2 more than other places. Why the low score then? Every beer that has some hype the person who makes the prices gauges hard, real hard. Greed is all that is. Example: double crooked tree: $17.99 at the high end for a 4-pack other places, but at Alex’s it was labeled $9.99 per bottle! Sam Adams Utopias: just $400. He’s a crook and I won’t support it, unless I want an extra greasy piece of pizza.

Ambiance? ha! it is a gas station!! But, an amazing gas station. Every time I walk in, I am amazed at the selection. Tons of MI brews, and the biggest selection on Short’s I have ever seen. I wish you could make your own 6 packs here, like you can at Oliver T’s which isn’t too far away. Alex’s also has gourmet food, and the place is very clean. If you are heading Up North on 75, or going skiing on Mt. Holly...STOP at Alex’s!!

(Visited 03/2009): Mike’s Mobil is on Apple Valley Rd on the north side of Bear Valley Rd not too far off I-15. It is a gas station so there are only a few parking spaces.
The inside is your typical convenince store layout, with nearly all the beer being in coolers in the rear past the registers.
Yes, this is a gas station and I was skeptical when the bartender at Oggi’s told me to check it out, but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise as far as the selection goes. Many regional craft brewers are represented, such as Lagunitas, Stone, Rogue, Nectar, Sierra Nevada, North Coast, Strauss etc. A decent selection of imports too, such as Hofbrau, Spaten, Maredsous, Chimay and Cucapa.
Service was about what I expected, in other words a friendly greeting at the cash register. However according to the Oggi’s referral, the owner Mike will try to track down requested beer for his customers.
Overall this place is not going to give Bevmo a run for its money but it is a welcome oasis in the desert.
