Do not let the outside fool you, the inside is small but has great beer and delicious food. A must stop while in Orlando if you like small local dives. My husband created his own brisket sandwich, my daughter had the Mac n Cheese and I had the pork snack (kinda like nachos but with homemade chips instead of tortillas). Everything was awesome!!!!

Taco Tuesday is $1 off all tacos, but the chipotle brisket tacos, what I ate, was super delicious, it was super awesome. They do fill you up and the mix of ingredients is something special. I strongly recommend this place. They do have other things other than tacos if you don’t like tacos, but the tacos are awesome.

We were looking for a place we could walk to close to hotel. Found this place and could not have imagined how impressed we were going to be with the beer and food. It does not look like much from the outside the inside is very cool. Unbelievable craft beer selection for a small place and the food although simple, is outstanding. Being from Wisconsin, this place could easily challenge with some of the best craft beer places in Wisconsin!

This tiny shack at the side of the road hides the most amazing selection of local beers. It is really small inside with a small seating area outside and hence gets busy. The staff were really friendly and the beer was excellent, the menu looked lovely but we had eaten lunch elsewhere before our visit. We were only in Orlando briefly so only managed one visit but would definitely go back again. Do not be put off by the outside appearance!

This place absolutely does not look like much from the outside. It's basically a shack set in the middle of a gravel parking lot in a crappy part of Pine Castle right by the Orlando International Airport. However, the bartenders inside were really friendly and they have a big menu of bar bites including some amazing sandwiches. There are a ton of rotating beers on draft and a lot of good bottles and cans plus some wine. It'll be my new go to spot lunch spot when visiting Orlando.
