We took a trip to Enid a few weekends ago, found several places that looked interesting for dinner but since I promised Big K a beer we stopped here to try them out. I was interested because it was located in an old building in downtown Enid, of course he was interested because it had locally brewed beer.
When you go in, you order at the bar, then choose a seat. We decided to start with a pioneer pretzel, a huge warm pretzel served with a side of beer cheese. This was good, it was just a standard big pretzel and the beer cheese was good but didn’t have a tanginess I’ve come to enjoy with other beer cheeses. I only had a water to drink (since I was driving) but Big K had a pilsner. He really liked it, said it had a rich flavor with notes of chocolate. On their website they claim that they track the beer from grain to glass. I believe the grain is grown locally around Enid. They do have a limited menu with only a few burgers, a few salads, and a couple of sandwiches. I tried the queso patty melt. The bread was buttery and toasted, lots of beer cheese smothered over the top but the meat was too salty. I felt that the flavor of the meat was being covered by the salt. It was really disappointing since the meat was locally sourced, should let the flavor of the meat shine through not cover it with salt and spices. No choice on sides, you only get chips (like Ruffles or Lays), which was also disappointing. Big K got the bacon jam burger, he liked it, it does have a bit of a kick to it with the jalapenos. I had a bite, it was ok but still the problem with the salty meat.
Service was spotty at best. No one came to refill my water, which was an issue since the hamburger meat was so salty. We also had to ask for menus when we walked in, we had never been there so didn’t know their menu. The building looked interesting, possibly had been a Masonic Lodge built around 1900. From their website I believe you can rent rooms on the second floor, like a bed and breakfast. Overall, I’m giving them 2 strips of bacon. I understand they’re a bar but the food could have been better.
