|Lots of good beer on tap.|
|Cold and refreshing local beer.|
The Broncos won, and I ended up having a good meal besides. Since then, it has become my go-to destination for every major sporting event. A large part of the reason for that is that they have 22 beers on tap, with $7.50 for domestics (except PBR, which proudly comes in at $6,) and $10 for microbrews, as well as a full bar. When Wife and I came in for our date, she got a glass of the locally produced Payette Outlaw. During football games, the Brew is close enough of a walk for me to stagger home, but this day I stuck with the iced tea. However, I did take a sip of her beer and it was fantastic. I really like the beers coming from the Payette Brewery, but that is a different post. Back at the restaurant, our waitress seated us promptly and with a big smile, quickly got us our drinks, and then hung back as Wife and I slowly deliberated our options. In the end, she went with her usual--fish and chips--and I got a double order of finger steaks.
humble origins, finger steaks are still made with steak--it's such a travesty to ruin good meat. These were perfectly cooked. One big surprise was that they served their finger steaks with barbecue sauce instead of cocktail sauce, which is the condiment that I was used to, but it was good sauce (with strong hints of apple cider vinegar,) and went well with the meat. The best, though, was when Wife and I had them bring us some Frank's Hot Sauce and blue cheese dressing--that classic flavor combination was perfect with both my heavier steak and the fish. This was especially welcome since the one nit-pick I can find for this whole meal was that the tartar sauce was a bit thick and uninteresting. We ate everything except for one of the rolls--Wife finds them superfluous.
Really, I have never had a bad meal here, and I've had burgers, chicken sandwiches, dinner salads, and more. This isn't a fancy restaurant; just a down-to-earth beer and burgers joint, hence the name. But you really can't go wrong if you are looking for a place to watch a game or just a local alternative to Red Robin or Applebee's.
