I went here after work last night for dinner.
I decided to have the grilled mac and cheese as an appetizer and it was delicious. I love mac and cheese and will eat it almost in any form. The extra crisp from the grilled cheesiness was just awesome. I am a "burned cheese edge" kind of gal and always will be. I love that crunchy cheese and this has it! You can sub it for a side of any of their burgers or sandwiches.
I had the gaucho burger which was amazing. Caramelized onion, provolone cheese and chimichurri sauce. Chimmichanga? Cheech Marin? No Chimichurri. Chimichurri is made from finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, vegetable oil or olive oil, white or red vinegar, and red pepper flakes. And it's pretty darn good on a burger too! My burger was perfectly cooked and delicous. I got a side of their sweet potato fries. I was only somewhat disappointed with the fries - they were softer than I like. They did come with a really tasty cinnamon sauce for dipping. I didn't go overboard with the sauce - it was pretty sweet. It helped contrast between the sweet and the chimichurri sauce.
I had possibly the nicest server that I've ever had here. Look for Jackson if you stop by. He was super fast and accurate with my order and was just a very friendly person. I talked to him about different beers and beerfest while he did some of his side work. All of the staff that I talked to were very friendly and genuine.
If you don't live in the Mariemont area you may not be so inclined to make a trek. You may want to make the trip for the mac and cheese alone. You can get to it in less than 10 minutes from the Kenwood exit off of I71. They have monthly burger and beer specials. They also have a very extensive beer list. they have a huge draft list with a very helpful chart on the alcohol %, the color of the brew and the price. I went for the Sam Adams Octoberfest which was about $4. Not too shabby for a seasonal beer. I was very excited to see that they are a dedicated seller of Goose Island Matilda (bottle)- my favorite beer.
Another great neighborhood sports bar to try with not just your normal fare. Well okay burgers and such are pretty normal - the taste is not.

I finally got a chance to take my husband here. I'm glad I did because the burger of the day was the MacDaddy - regular burger with the grilled mac and cheese on top. (Please put this on your menu!) Pat barely had words to describe it when he ate it. More than the mac he was struck by their beef combination that was so flavorful and juicy. Then there was the mac on the burger which was amazing. No doubt it's something that one shouldn't eat every day but it is definitely going up there with the grilled cheese donut as a guilty pleasure comfort food.
I had the Oktoberfest burger - burger with bacon kraut and pickles with a horseradish cheddar cheese on a pretzel bun. This was good but seriously messy. When you're in the German food kind of mood but don't want to go full schnitzel at Hofbrauhaus have this tasty burger with a nice beer on the side. You'll be in heaven.
