Riverfront Times' Description
This hidden gem recently made the switch from banquet hall to bar and restaurant. The culture clash is immediately evident: Stained glass windows feature decidedly Germanic imps clutching beer steins, yet the name of the place is Spanish for "The Woodcutter." Walking into the bar, you may immediately start looking for one of two infamous TV characters, Special Agent Dale Cooper or Doctor Who -- did you time travel, or just walk into David Lynch's wet dream? The answer is, sort of both. The interior is an amber-preserved homage to the German Brewhaus of decades past: A hand-painted mural of the Black Forest and low-hanging chandeliers decorate the restaurant side, while kitschy petrified wood adorns the dim bar. Mexican food in an old German bar, and nary a German bier in sight? Si, bitte!
Tips from foursquare
The kitchen stays open till 1am/ish. The nachos are perfect drunk munchies.
