We were searching for somewhere with good, easy, affordable food, and not looking for a fancy dining experience. It seems most of the restaurants here try to be a bit pretentious. We took the advice of reviewers saying this is the local watering hole, and they were right!
To get the bad things out of the way: I didn't like that they served only wine & beer - I'm an avid wine drinker, but was in a cocktail mood - no such luck. They do have a beer on tap for $2.00/pint however! I had the Diamond Red Merlot which was amazing, my Fiance tried the Douchenette & the Mens Room beers and enjoyed both.
The waitress/bartender was one person, and at any give time there was 1 table, maybe 2 bar seats available, so it was a little slow in between seating, getting drinks, meals etc., but when you consider the fact that there was one person running the whole show, she did a great job of keeping everyone happy!
We ordered Jalapeno poppers to start, which I suspected were from Costco, only because we buy them from costco and LOVE them! I had the famous lower burger, with bacon & jack, which was huge - yes the bun was amazing as others have said, but the beef and sauce had great flavor. Their fries were also good - and I'm a fussy fry eater! My Fiance had the buffalo chicken salad - which he loved since it had blue-cheese. I always assumed buffalo chicken meant it had the "hot wing" sauce, but this was just bbq sauce - he was happy anyways.
We had a great evening out, and he wants to go back tomorrow for lunch - We will see about that!
