We wandered in shortly after 12 and the place wasn't too busy. We sat at the counter because we thought it was pretty cool. Talk about renovation. The old set up is gone and now it is a total surfy, sports bar type place! Super cool! Beers on tap and a full liquor license - yahoo! I couldn't believe they had Samuel Adams Summer Ale on tap - no one ever has it! Score!
Our waitress, who also was the bartender, Susan - recommended we try the Spinach Dip. It is served piping hot underneath a blanket of cheese. It was good, but it needed some spice. We gave it a few shakes of Tabasco and were good to go.
The first order up was Amanda's Stuffed Burger. It had cheese mixed in with the ground beef and cooked to a perfect medium. Grilled onions were aplenty! Yum yum. The only complaint was the bun was way too big for the size of the burger. They could reduce the size of the bun, after all it is kind of wasteful. Next up, was the Drunken Burger - Another beautiful burger topped with a English Cheddar. Tasty, juicy and hard to fit into your mouth! Best Burgers in Hollister - that is a big claim but I stand by my statement. The fries flanked along side the burgers were the good kind. The kind that make you wish you had more room in your stomach to finish off - you know what I am talking about! Last but not least was my order - The Street Tacos, you know because I am soooo street. ;) They were delicious! Kind of spicy but served with a cool mayonnaise sauce that refreshed my burned buds. The pico de gallo is also good on top!
What a treat! I was thoroughly impressed with the fun menu and diverse array of drink selections. The place is clean, clean, clean and makes you feel like hanging out awhile. We were fortunate to get a great server, stick with Susan when dining there - she takes care of you and makes sure your visit is a good one. The prices are fair and the drive is a not too bad, in fact I found it refreshing - breaking up my mid-day. I am going to give it 1.75 thumbs up. I will return, you will see me there!
