This Fairfax gastropub seems to be developing quite a following. Although I think it's a great place to grab a few drinks and watch a game, the food fell a little flat on this visit. Of all the dishes we ordered the sausage board, chop salad and braised short rib French dip were well received by the table. The cheese plate was definitely not worth $14, the burger was so so and the mac and cheese should remove jalapeno from the name. There was absolutely no spice to this dish. The only heat I received was when I removed the one jalapeno from the top and accidentally rubbed my eye (ouch)!
I will definitely return but may wait until football season is underway. Go Cowboys!
Quick Tip: Stick with visiting the Fat Dog during Happy Hour for small bites and and beer to save yourself a few bucks. Feel free to bring your four legged friend and relax on the patio.
