We sat here for the army vs navy game. Plenty of big tv's and a good selection of Texas beers. Food was good we had queso, wings, bat sliders and fries. Everything was good. Would come back.

Big menu but everything we tried was delicious. White wings were awesome! Great wings. Egg rolls also so good. Nice drink menu. Very casual cool atmosphere. I'd describe it as a non-generic sports bar with great food!

After dinner at hopdoody's we walked off the burger to this joint. Great outdoor seating area and lots of beers on the menu. The wait staff was great and respectful of us just having a beer or two. Definitely will stop back and try the menu!

We had a nice early dinner outside in a somewhat cozy beer garden atmosphere. The blackened fish tacos were really tasty and the Austin Amber was excellent! Service was quick and friendly and even called us cab when needed. All good!
