My fiancé and I went on a Monday night. The service was ok, but a definite disappointment after the great service the night before at Auslander. The restaurant was not crowded at all, but the food was slow. We were quite disappointed that we could not order food in the biergarten as it was a beautiful night. We ordered a pretzel with queso as an appetizer. The pretzel was nothing special and had too much salt. I could have gotten this pretzel from the freezer section at the grocery store. The queso was only melted Velveeta, definitely not what I expect as queso in Texas. There was no flavoring or seasoning to it at all. I had the Not So Dumb Blonde beer, and it was ok, again, nothing special. My fiancé had the Enchanted Red Rock Ale - nothing special. For dinner, I had the Cheddar Ale Soup - it tasted like Velveeta with some seasoning. It was not hot when it came out. I should have sent it back. I got sick later that night, and wonder if it was the soup. My fiancé had a burger and fries. He's a big fry guy, and didn't eat them all. Again, could have found them in the freezer section at the store. The burger, however, was the saving grace - it was pretty good. The best part about it was the bun and the pickle.
Overall, it's a restaurant that has a theme, but no identity, especially when it comes to the menu. It's a little all over the place. Also, there is more than one mention about rolls being special enough you might want more for 35 cents each - no mention or details on it either on the menu or from the waiter - they're not that special. Wouldn't even pay 5 cents for an extra one, especially when most restaurants give you free rolls. The menu never mentioned the special bun for the burger, which as I said, is one of it's best features. The wait staff spent most of the time talking to each other, eating behind the bar, and hanging out with their friends.
My fiancé was especially disappointed as this was the main place he wanted to go for dinner. We won't be back. Even for just a beer, I'd go to Auslander.
