Well, the draft beer selection cannot be beat anywhere that I know of (including some places in LA), and the burgers are superb - one with blue cheese and pears on it with walnut aioli...yum...with sweet potato fries. The 'mac and cheese' side is excellent too, not the fake yellow stuff from a box some of us may remember. The burgers were not humungous (good) and nicely charbroiled. Overall, great place. One thing, not a lot of light outside, we drove past it in the dark worried it wasn't open, then realized there were cars in the lot and it was indeed open.

Tons of beers on tap, great food, great atmosphere. They have a patio for smoking and a really dope fountain.

My husband and I enjoy a cigar from time to time and there are very few places one can do this and Hoppy Monk is one of them. You have to sit outside but El Paso weather allows for this most of the year. They have a Wall Of Beer on tap. And the drinks are poured well. Food is tasty. If you love garlic the fries are a must. Just go one time and you will become a regular.

The beer selection was good. However, it took 30 min for a waitress to even come over to us. She took our order and never came back. So we went to the bar and got our drinks ourselves. A regular coors light was $6, which is was over priced compared to other bars in town.

We have now been to The Hoppy Monk several times, and have always enjoyed it. On our last visit we finally got to try some of their food. It was a Sunday afternoon, and they were offering free brats, so we decided to each have one of those. With the beer it made a nice lunch. They have an ever-changing list of draft beers, plus bottles. We were pleased with the beers they were offering. The prior time we visited we were hoping to get some of the Stone 16th Anniversary ale, but unfortunately we were too late for that very popular offering. Seeing as how El Paso no longer has its own brewery (which wasn't very good anyway), and since we don't have a Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, we find The Hoppy Monk to be a nice addition to El Paso. We are not often on that side of town, but given that they now offer food, it's worth a trek over there. If they are out of what you want, there is probably something else interesting available. We have also really enjoyed the service there - their wait staff has been very personable and very interesting.
