No beer at Arbor Walk

singlemalt Apr 29, 2009 03:12 PM

Went to Home Depot today and thought that a beer would be might good. Went to Potbelly, no beer. I asked around, including Spec's and was told that it was unlikely that no place at the AW served beer on premises. WTH, this is Austin. Thank you favorite deities though that they put in a 4 way stop sign there in front of the HD. OTW,if you know of a beer place in AW please let me know. J.

    I don't think most small lunch-oriented chains serve beer (which is what AW is primarily composed of), but you'd probably have some luck at the Mimi's Cafe at the far South end.

      Did you try Chucky Cheese? In all seriousness, the Chipotle beside Mighty Fine should have beer.

        Thank you for your replies. Mighty Fine does not, Chipotle and Mimi's do. I will go better prepared next time.

          I'm pretty sure Mighty Fine has bottle beer, albeit crappy beer.

            Mighty Fine has Lone Star, Shiner, and Dos XX.

              And if you are there you generally need it.

              I just saw that a few days ago. It is just blocks from my work and I will have to give it a try.

                I ate there for the second time today at lunch, and both times it was very good. It is a really beautiful setting with a great patio overlooking the lake. I have only had the chicken enchiladas, but I love the fire roasted flavor and the crispy ends of the tortilla. My only complaint is that it is not as hot as it should be when served. It is always more than I can eat and I take the leftovers back to work; it reheats great.
