Do not let the outside fool you, the inside is small but has great beer and delicious food. A must stop while in Orlando if you like small local dives. My husband created his own brisket sandwich, my daughter had the Mac n Cheese and...More

Taco Tuesday is $1 off all tacos, but the chipotle brisket tacos, what I ate, was super delicious, it was super awesome. They do fill you up and the mix of ingredients is something special. I strongly recommend this place. They do have other things...More

This tiny shack at the side of the road hides the most amazing selection of local beers. It is really small inside with a small seating area outside and hence gets busy. The staff were really friendly and the beer was excellent, the menu looked...More

The food was amazing. We tried a variety of items and left with too much food on our plates. It was fun to try different beers as well. I would have given 5 stars if the service was better. It wasn't horrible, but just average....More

I read the reviews and it’s true. If you go by appearance only, you’ll continue driving. Yeah, it’s extremely casual and a bit of a dive, you’ll be mistaken if you don’t give it a try. Our large group of 12 dined outdoors and had...More

Found this place searching in the Trip Advisor App. The reviews were right on, you gotta go inside! The food is fantastic. I got the fish taco, we also had the mac and cheese (jalapeño)...so good. The prices were so reasonable.
