“Ok place to hang out”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Been a couple of times. Food is average nice bar food. Nothing super exciting. Atmosphere is nice early in the evening and some staff attentive. Last time there was for a group Bday party and our waiter just disappeared... We had to go to bar for drinks until another waitress asked how we were (we told her) and she swapped our tab to her name. She was great for the rest of the evening. Mostly a 20 something meat market after about 10.

“High energy combined with good food and cold beer makes this a favorite!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

This place is the perfect place to watch a game with friends. The beer is cold and the food is above average for this kind of place. The nachos are made with freshly fried tortilla chips with a generous amount of all the toppings. The burgers are huge and have great flavor. The sweet potato fries are really good and shouldn't be missed. Service is a little slow but that fits with this kind of place, it gives you plenty of time to watch the games. This place is the next best place to being there. Fear the Frog!

“Incredibly good food w a hip Industrial chic vibe”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

What an enjoyable surprise - my husband and I were out on a Sunday afternoon and opted for a late lunch in this new (to us) Ft Worth eatery. While primarily a young 20s or 30s age hangout, we noted a sprinkling of folks our age. We arrived at the end of brunch so we both chose their burger platter.

While we waited patiently (there was an overlap of time between the kitchen finishing up brunch which is all that was served on sunday, until 3 pm) we both admired the gorgeous industrial chic lighting and overall vibe - really appreciated the huge indoor/outdoor fans and misters blowing cool air even inside where we were seated.

The food was totally worth the wait. The burgers had a rich, deep smoky flavor and my hubby speculated there may have been a dry rub applied to the meat or a secret marinade. Regardless of what the kitchen did to prep the meat, seriously amazing. He had the house fries which were sprinkled w Parmesan and something else - delicious. I had the house salad which was a tasty compliment to the burger - given the time of day we were there, no issues w the parking.

My husband was impressed their drink selection included his locally made favorite, Revolver, so look forward to going back and sampling more dishes.

Definitely worth the stop.

“Atmosphere good - food poor”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Great casual bar atmosphere. Waitress, although nice, uninformed. Had to ask manager how many ounces and what sizes were available in the draft beer. Ordered chicken wings and loaded nachos with some type of chili on them. Chicken wings were pretty average, wouldn't get again unless I was craving wings - last resort. The nachos, a generous amount of chips with very little else. The "shredded" lettuce was salad size, 1"x2" pieces covering everything verses what seemed like about 1-2 tablespoons of the chili for the entire plate! So it was like eating chips with lettuce- nice! Wouldn't get again. Will probably give them another try - more for the bar than the food.

“Would be 4-stars if it did not look out onto parking lot and building”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I had a fun time. Good gathering place to mingle with friends. My food came out that on the cold side and the bun was soggy. But the server was very pleasant and nice to our group. I would go back and give them another chance to improve.

Oh - the drink/beer selection was just OK..... Nothing that would improve their rating.
