What a wonderful surprise. Always busy but never hectic. Grilled cheese and fries are great. Hamburger is superb. Staff is friendly and inviting. All around great spot. Just remember... only cash.

Try the veggie quesadilla's, excellent. A meal in themselves. The rootbeer is like my dad made. Like old-time sarsaparilla rootbeer. And it's not over-the-top sweet like just about every bottled rootbeer out there.

The wait staff here is so very friendly. Cash Only! Tip your staff at the register. We had the daily special hummus and it was amazing. Our burgers were very good; a bit overcooked. Great Amber.

If you love beer, come here. They let you try a few different samples to see which one you like. The burgers are really good. The pink lady is also really good! Definitely put this place on your to visit list!

I think their South Boulder location may be able to manage the size. I do. It know the policy of the pub on large groups though. It is cash only so you will need a wad of bills or a local check.

They only take cash so I am guessing they do not sell gift cards. Try Avery brewery or Fate brewery that may sell gift cards

They do not take reservations and are often busy, but very accommodating while you wait. I'm not sure about gluten free.
