Had a late lunch, arrived at 3:00. Happy Hour was 4:00 place was empty. Service was good and quick. Ordered one glass of wine and a Paris Roubaix buffalo burger, quite tasty, a bit spicy. I am not a big burger person but this hit the spot. Happy hour was 15 minutes away and I had an empty glass, server... More

I have eaten there once, and will never eat there again. A friend and I arrived at the restaurant when it was pretty much empty. We were seated and sat for probably 30minutes before any of the staff approached our table. When they did, we didn't find them to be welcoming or service minded. The food was horrible, and we...

I have been there once, I spent a reasonable amount for a burger ($12) and I left as tip the 10% paying by card. I had a good opinion of this place until I checked my bank transactions and I saw they took 15 dollars (as a tip I suppose) rather than 1,20, for a total of $27 for a... More

Beer Menu was 10 pages! I wanted a Buffalo Burger, so friend took me here. I'm not much of a beer drinker, waiter brought a dark beer sample, didn't like, so he suggested a MILK STOUT! Very good! Buffalo with blue cheese, celery sauce was great. Sweet Potato Fries to-travel-half-way-around-the-world for.. .We ate outside, downtown Boulder! (traffic noisy) but great... More

I stopped here on a Wednesday for lunch. Decided to go with a burger as it seemed like it should be their specialty. I ordered The Sprocket, which is a basic burger with lettuce, tomato, and cheese along with a house sauce. Their burgers come on a pretzel bun which is a good thing because mine was fairly greasy. The... More

If you like Belgian beer and great burgers, this is your place. As for Ruebens???? On my first visit I went for the Rueben, but true to several other online reports, it was not available. The staff gave me tips on how to get the elusive Rueben, which, next visit, I did. But Rueben available or not, the beers and... More

Decided to have dinner here. Was able to get seated right away. Hostess and server were very polite and accommodating. Atmosphere is fun and lax. Wide range of menu items. Had the wings for an appetizer and was not impressed. The burger I ordered was ok. Price is not bad and is fare for what you get.

Have tried this place 3 times and every time have been told that they are out of ruebens. How can a placed called Reubens consistently be out of reubens? I could see it once, but 3 times. On the plus side their pretzel buns are to die for. Three strikes and your out!
