  1. Ooh I need to try this place sometime. I always walk by it but have never gone in even though ti looks like a lively happy hour spot. I think I would have picked the same mac and cheese as you :)))

      Hi J.S. – mmm, that mac! They have a ton of different things I want to try on the sides menu and different sausages. It’s so good, hope you get some sausages!

    These sausages and that mac and cheese look soooo good. I mentioned on Facebook that this place is on my list now! Mmmmmmm, you really can’t go wrong with sausages and mac! Bummer about the last one, though, toppings falling off all over the place isn’t a desireable outcome for eatin’!

      Yeah I’m a believer in less toppings! They have lots of tasty sounding things on the menu so of course you must go get you some sausages 🙂

  3. Kirbie and I went here when they opened a few summers ago. I remember liking her Lobster sausage and my Pork Belly sausage as well as their housemade sauces. There were so many good choices on their menu.

      I remember your posts about it! I don’t remember seeing lobster on there this time, or pork belly. Perhaps seasonal thing, or they were just trying out new stuff for the winter. I want to try more of their sides next time, actually. There was a lot of good sounding items on their menu.

  4. I was so excited when I saw the title of this post! I’ve been really interested in coming here but haven’t made it out yet. I’m definitely having sausage when we go here! I sampled them at Bacon and Barrels booth but for both Hillcrest events last year (taste of, taste ‘n tinis) they ran out of food. Made me crave even more! Good visit!

      Hi Lynn – It took us a while to head back there to try it but I’m glad we did. The sausages are really good. We’re excited about a future revisit to try more of the delicious sounding side dishes.
