“it is just average”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

There is nothing special here at all. The decor could be from anywhere nothing to tell you that it is a micro brewery in the Southwest. The staff was distracted I got my hot sizzling meat and peppers for my fajitas but took 5 minutes to bring all the fixings. And they were pretty blab. Not a place I would recommend.

“Service is to be desired”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

The few times I have been here the service has been poor and very slow. Popped in for lunch once with guests from out of town and it took over an hour to get our food. The restaurant wasn't even very crowded. Food was average.

“Food not per the menu, no one's minding the store”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We ordered a taco salad, and the Asian Chicken Salad. Both take-outs.

The taco salad was nicely wrapped so it wouldn't spill over, but was lacking the promised salsa. We didn't feel like driving back, so it was eaten as-is.

The Asian Chicken Salad, however, was missing half its ingredients!
What we got was large chunks of romaine lettuce, big chunks of cold "grilled" factory chicken, and a small tub of out-of-the-bottle dressing. Missing were the promised celery, green
onions, slivered almonds and crispy noodles. Lettuce and chicken and dressing. I could have got that at the grocery store.

The blueberry cobbler was nice. Glad we ordered it.

The place looks nice, and I'm sure the beers are very good -- but we weren't in the mood for drinks, just good food. Sorry, J Fargo's -- but you really need to check on that kitchen to make sure what goes out, is what's promised on your menu.

“just stopped for beers”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We stopped in here just to try the beer since we had already eaten. They had 4 different beers on tap (one of them was sold out). We liked the IPA the best. The owner stood and chatted with us for about 45 minutes. He was really informative about how his beer was made, what other things we might want to see out our trip (we’re driving from PA to the west coast and back). Really friendly…seems like a nice place to go out to eat with your family.
