super fun atmosphere and good food

Great place to people watch while enjoying craft beers and good food. Salads are the best with wonderful dressings. Bartender and servers were funky and fun.

We really had good meals here. The chicken enchilada was terrific. Burritos were great. The simple chicken quesadilla was perfect for my daughter. Chips and salsa very tasty. 4 meals plus drinks for $45. Service was friendly.

Recently came back in town for wedding, after previously living in Gainesville for 8 yrs, this was the first place we went. Great drinks, great food. I had the burrito bowel with tilapia - highly recommend.

Ate twice in a month late in the evening. Both times took the food to go. Longer wait than I would have liked, but the burritos were very good! Worth a return trip! Maybe next time will stay 4 the live music:)

Ok so first of all really nice place with a very cool atmosphere. We went for brunch but it looks like they have live music at night. Beautiful patio outside. Downtown Gainesville right next to the hipp. They have a Bloody Mary bar where they bring you the basic cocktail but then you go fancy it the way you like... More

Really great outdoor seating area, picnic tables and open air. Great casual place. Never had a bad item on this menu. We are an older couple, so most of the patrons are younger and hipper than us, but we feel comfortable there. It is local owned, they use local farmers and providers.

The 7 of us stood at the bar for 15 minutes looking at the bartender girl chatting with regulars and having shots. She never even noticed us i believe. We left telling the young host guy it was taking too long. He did not seem to care either. I guess owner makes too much money.

It might be separate technically but the businesses are connected and that arrogant wannabe hipster bartender Brian needs to be fired. Denying service to a paying customer because you didn't agree with something on their Facebook is childish and far beyond place or his call. I hope he's jobless very soon. Over privileged pretentious people like him don't deserve to... More

I am way past getting a kick out of grungy college town eateries. Walking into this place we almost changed our minds because in keeping with the laid neo hippie style the tables outside had not been cleared for much longer than it takes the left over lettuce to wilt and cheese to coagulate. Inside though, things changed -- still... More

We just went on Friday night. The place was hopping but the wait wasn't bad. Our waiter was friendly and walked by frequently to check on us. The food came out quickly and was delicious. The beef chimichanga was terrific. My son had a veggie sandwich option and liked it. My only caution would be that even though I asked... More
