“Cute little place with great food”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 via mobile

This little place is a great neighborhood Spot. It is tiny so seats at the bar fill up fast. There are a handful of seats against one wall. They pushed several love seats together in a roll with small square tables in front of them and individual short stools on the other side. The other wall does have a shelf so you can stand and place your drink or food there. The bar is extremely dark so the menu shard to read without the flashlight app on your phone. We had tacos (short rib taco is a must!), burger, a bowl and sliders. They were all really amazing. The drinks at the bar are amazing as well. My biggest complaint is that you had to go to the bar to order. It is always so awkward to shout your order over someone sitting at the bar...and then lifting your drink around them. At least they brought food to your table. pass not the brownie...trust me for $4 you can get a box mix at home and be MUCH happier. The food and drinks are great, I would definitely go again!

“Just like the KOGI truck but with alcohol!”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

This place is for people like me who are too lazy to wait in line for the KOGI truck. But you get to drink too! And they have a really great beer/drink selection. The food is just as good here vs. the truck and they also added dishes from Chego. What sucks is the place is usually crowded and its hard to find seating space - but service is quick and you'll find a spot in no time.

“Like the world's nicest hole in the wall”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Went in for a drink and a date. What looks to be the upscale version of a dive bar has a secret power: great happy hour apps. So if you want to make your happy hour dollar go further, this is the place to do it.

“Brick and Mortar Kogi Truck + Beer”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

This spot is in a strange location with no other restaurants near by. The interior is nice with lounge area + bar. Beers are good but food is quite salty (good thing there's good bear to wash it down). Think taco truck food + good beef. Cool place to stop by to chill and have snacks and beer.

“Eat, drink, chill”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Great place to eat, have drinks with friends and just hang out. Can't go wrong with a place that serves alcohol and get Kogi. They make some strong drinks though.
