An old moonshine sign hung on the wall. Dark wooden tables and chairs fill the interior space. Patrons chat quietly. An occasional burst of raucous laughter punctuates the air.
After starting off with warm, crispy chips and a side of freshly made salsa, every single one of us chose a burger... each a different style.
It was topped with caramelized onions, crispy thick-cut bacon, tomatoes and creamy goat cheese ;) I think it means my mouth will soon be very, very happy.
One thing I really appreciated was a choice between a three-quarter pound burger or a one-quarter pound burger with the same toppings. I'm no Adam Richman. One quarter pound is more than enough for me!
I loved the Stout Fries, but wasn't crazy about the Ale-cheese sauce... it was a bit too Cheez-Whizzy for me. Ironically, that's precisely what the boys loved about it.
My ladyfriend who ordered the black bean burger thought it had a little too much black pepper for her liking. (Just between us, I enjoy a burger that bites back.)
It had a really good blend of flavors and held together well. It could stand up to any other burger on the menu. I may have to order that one next time!

My mouth was still happy from the goat cheese, bacon and onion flavors, but who can say no to such cuteness? (The couple, not the Moon Pie.)
Anyway, it was crunchy on the outside, warm, sticky and gooey on the inside... everything you'd want your deep-fried dessert to be. The vanilla bean ice cream cooled the piping hot pie and cut the sweet factor a tiny bit.
What a fun evening with friends at a lovely place. Next visit, I'm claiming an iron table with a red umbrella... look for me right out front.
