We've heard mixed reviews, but having had a pretty decent experience there about a week ago we decided to try it out for dinner.
First things first, drinks. I got a Shandy which is lemonade and beer mixed together. The beer I chose was Pearl Light. I had never had it, but I liked the name and the calorie content. Someone later in the evening told me it was the Texas 70's version of PBR. So there you have it. It was good. The Shandy I mean. The beer by itself was...beer. M tried to order two different wines, but they were out of both of them. Same thing happened last time we were there. I don't know whats going on with that, but it's pretty lame.
The brussels were pretty good. A small side gets you a lot so kudos to them for not being stingy. Dill and brussels sprouts may not be my favorite flavor combo, but I get where they were going. They could have done with a better sauté, but they were decent.
I wanted dessert but was way too full. They sell NadaMoo ice cream which I would have devoured if I had room!
All in all, I'm a fan! As a vegan, I appreciate the unique options Snack Bar has to offer. I wouldn't go there expecting the fastest service or top notch experience, but for a low key meal, I like it. Next time I go, it's gonna be for brunch. I'm curious about their vegan waffles.
