Friendly and helpful staff at least made an effort to compensate for problems my group of six experienced with our dinner. Fully 50% of us had problems ranging from meals which were undercooked to those which were made significantly differently from menu description to one meal which arrived nearly 15 minutes after all other members of my party had been served their dinner. My friends described their meals as anywhere from good to sub par.

This has got to be the best happy hour in town. When I went in, they were having some Tuesday taco deal for $1 each. I figured these were going to just be little tacos, but they are the best tacos I have every tried, and I have tried a lot of tacos! On to the happy hour which was happing concurrently. 1/2 price on all wine, well drinks and draught beers. This isn't any joke since they have 24 different beers on tap. Not just any beers either, all of them were interesting beers! Not even Budweiser among them. The restaurant is a cross between a dive bar and a classy restaurant. The design is cool, casual and very spacious with two levels of seating and a long wooden bar. There is modern music playing at a good level in the background, and the service is ridiculously good for a place of this genre. I would definitely go back the next time I am in the East Village.

first off: great concept. Eclectically prepared Tex Mex style food paired with a greatt bar atmosphere. The cuban sliders are substantial. The steak tacos are sublime. When you get nachos here the sauce is con queso so you don't get an unshareable clump. Lots of goodies well distributed. The bartenders are fast and they have a huge selection of rare beers. They give you a sheet explaining all about the strong beers. Also good cocktails and sangria. This place just scored best of 2009 for me.

I don't know how this last guy flamed this place like that. Live in a shoe? The have 30 draft beers, and not one of them is Bud Miller or Coors, or even Samuel Adams. Last night when I went the had Boulder Oatmeal Stout from Colorado which is awesome. The also had Dogfish Head Punkin Ale, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, Delirium Tremens, Laguinitas Imperial IPA, and those are only the beers I had. They have stuff I never even heard of. The food is solid. All kinds of specials all week like $1 tacos on Tuesday. I had the chicken Mole taco plate last night. The tacos are incredible and come with a small topping of guacamole. It comes with a side of cilantro rice and a nice refried beans. The best I ever had. We also had the jumbo shrimp wrapped in jalapeno and bacon. The shrimp are huge, and they weren't really spicy. Just a nice taste. Service from this guy Hans was very attentive, but not overly so. He really knew his beers and was able to make appropriate recommendations. The World Series was on some big monitors, and it wasn't so crowded we couldn't get a table. The girls we were with got a pitcher of strong sangria for just $10! Its a Wednesday special, and they told me it was the very best sangria they ever had. I highly recommend anyone give this place a try. The atmosphere is Southwestern and almost elegant.

After being around there and in the area. Tasting the food and drinking the beer there. I would never go back. the food is just alright. People say the have a great beer selection. I think they live in a shoe, but if your in the area check out the asian place across the street. It was packed on a sat night, while this place was empty for good reason.

This place has one of the best happy hours in town. All drinks are are half price from 4 to 7 every weekday. I really like the food, although I just get appetizers on Mondays, when they are 1/2 price, or tacos tuesdays when that are $1. I have not tried a full meal, but I'll bet it will be good, based on what I've had so far. The beer selection at Hop Devil is where it's at. They have a large selection of constantly rotating craft brews on tap, and when 1/2 price during happy hour, they taste fantastic.

Just moved to the neighborhood from California. Man, was I glad this was one of the first places I stopped. Take it from me, these guys are doing authentic food. Its delicous, and the prices are good. How luck was I to find out that they not only make great Southwest/Mexican food, but during happy hour they give you free chips and salsa and beer is 1/2 price? Oh yeah, they have 30 taps of craft brewed beers. And, according to my wife's friends, the best sangria in the neighborhood. The music they play is nice, and the vibe is totally chill for a restauant. My only complaint is that the service could be a little more attentive.
