The Brick House Tavern + Tap is quickly turning into our favorite restaurant. It’s located right next to the local Mexican hot-spot Chuy’s, which means the parking lot is always SLAMMED. Luckily when Chuy’s is on a 35-45 minute wait, Brick House is still pretty empty. We’ve been a few times now around 6pm on Friday night and had no problem sitting down at a table right away.
AND they have beer bongs. Yes, I’m not kidding.
We contemplate trying a new appetizer every time (there’s so many!) …
… but somehow always default back to their buttery soft pretzels with a trio of dipping sauces:
Oh look at that, I still ordered a glass of wine anyway. Shocking.
Anyway, back to those phenomenal pretzels
So. Damn. Tasty. I’m a sucker for a good soft pretzel.
This particular time I ordered the Steak + Eggs: filet mignon, two eggs any style (I went over-easy), crispy potatoes (sub french fries) & buttered texas toast
I was thoroughly enjoying my dinner, until I took a bite of Brad’s Drunken Chops:
Wow. Incredible. And HUGE!
Once I sampled his dinner, I quickly lost interest in my own. The pork chops were perfectly cooked and the whiskey glaze went extremely well with them. Tip: ask for an extra side of glaze for dipping – you won’t regret it!
Unless I was in the mood for steak I probably wouldn’t order the Steak + Eggs again. There are SO many other options worth checking out.
I’d also highly recommend the kobe, one of the best burgers I’ve ever had:
and their Chicken + Waffles, simple yet delicious
And for the Happy Hour lover, you can get your drink on early or late – with the added bonus of discounted apps!
It’s definitely a restaurant worth checking out. Don’t be discouraged by the parking lot situation – Chuy’s takes most of the business. The food at Brick House is fantastic and the service always excellent.
