Happy Friday Everyone, Today I am finally getting to share the photos from a recent food tasting.  This place is in my neighborhood, and it’s among a large group of restaurants in this area.  In fact, it stands side by side with a sea of steakhouses and family dining establishments.  However, this place is holding strong with some of the most unique meals, that are considered “classics”, but the owner, put his own spin on the standard.  This place is called The Barrel and Brew, they serve over 50 hand-crafted beers that are brewed locally.  Also, they have a menu of the best burgers, fish, tacos, and desserts. To read my full article, please click on the following link http://stylemagazine.com/news/2013/may/08/somethings-brewing-fountains/.   So lets get to the food.

Grilled Pork Tacos, with grilled pineapples and avocado slices.

The sampling began with the  “Pastor Pork Tacos, with grilled pineapples, cilantro and avocado slices, there is also a red pepper salsa on the side.   The meat was very tender and seasoned well, the pineapple was grilled, sliced, and added balance to the savory dish. The sauce was bursting with flavor, but not raging with heat.      We also tasted  The “Beef Truck Stop Taco”, that is made with grilled fajita beef, pico, crema and monterrey jack cheese. Next, is a a photo of my entree’ which is called “The Red Chile Grilled Snapper”, made with fresh Red Snapper,” New Mexico Honey, Tomato, Spanish Onion and Cilantro Chile Sauce”.  I also had garlic and butter flavored broccoli with garlic mashed potatoes.

This dish was incredible, I couldn’t believe how good the food was compared to what they charged for this meal, I think this meal is around $12-14. Go see for yourself, seriously. Now for “Headliner”, in my opinion, “The Green Chile Cheeseburger.” This burger stole the show!

“All Aboard!” This burger is heaven on a plate, meat, monterrey jack, parmesean cheese sauce, hatch chile, red pickled onions, and a side of french fries.  I’ll stop here, because I know some of you are crying now, but you don’t have to.  The Barrel and Brew is located at: 12720 Southwest Freeway, Stafford, TX 77477. They are open 7 days a week.  Go, and let me know what you think.

Thanks for reading!

    please, correct your article …
    the craft beers are NOT brewed in-house.
    there are 50 craft beers on tap – all Texas brewed…
