Brick House Tavern + Tap

IMG_0268

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.

The wine list is a little sparse for my liking but their beer selection more than makes up for it:

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.
