I just went there for the first time and was fairly disappointed. I'll start by saying that the outdoor space is awesome and seems like a great place to spend a sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, the beers we got (grolsch) were $6 each! Bars with rent payments in uptown charge less for significantly better beers.
For the food, i tried the fried chicken, rotisserie chicken, collard greens, mashed potatoes and gravy and mac & cheese. I thought the fried chicken was great. It has a honey drizzle making it sweeter than traditional fried chicken. The greens were also tasty. Everything else was pretty bad. The gravy that came with the plain mashed potatoes was inedible. The mac & cheese was indistinguishable from what you would get at KFC. the rotisserie chicken was sloppy -- covered with a thick sauce -- and yet still tasteless.
And here's something else I found disturbing. Superfluous descriptors for certain menu items that seemed to assume the diner is incredibly uninformed. For example: "chickpea hummus" or "elbow mac & cheese". Trying to make your menu sound fancy by describing the necessary ingredients bugs me. Soon we'll see "fire roasted tomato red sauce" or "yeast infused buns" on menus as well.
I'd suggest giving them a few months. It took Smoke probably close to a year to really hit stride and settle in on menu and preparations.
That being said, I like the fried chicken, it's a nice change of pace from the Babe's style, which I find honestly a little bit bland. Maybe the sides could use a little tweaking, but after multiple meals I've not found them to be bad by any means.
Although beer prices are high all over, I find their prices to be fair. But I drink their local offerings like Deep Ellum Brewery, Franconia and Peticolas, which I think are around $4-5. The Moth is prob 15% higher on most, I'd guess.
The beer garden is excellent and kid friendly prior to sundown, a welcome addition to the nieghborhood.
