Hit for Happy Hour: Fans of the original Highland location are stoked that Tap and Burger's "[m]outh-watering meats" and happy hour prices "that can't be beat" are available at the Sloan's Lake spot. Suggested specials include the $5 Rajah's Rum Punch, $5 margaritas, and $3 select drafts. Pro-Parent tip: kids eat free on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (with the purchase of an adult entree). [Yelp]

The Service BluesGoogle reviewers awarded the compliments for its food selections, style, and price but weren't as generous with accolades for the service. Customers complained of forgotten dishes, overcharged drinks, and a lack of local games shown at the sports bar. The "subpar service" leaves dinner with a sense of "awful disappointment." [Google Reviews]

(Mostly) Charming Menu Offerings: Facebook users fly to Sloan's Lake Tap and Burger for more than just the burgers. Fans recommend most of the wing selections, mac and cheese, and the Mother Earth burger. However, mixed reviews were given to the tuna poke burger and whiskey wings. The extensive beer menu won over most, if not all diners. [Facebook]

New Location, Same Vibes: The Sloan's Lake outpost adopts the bigger the better mentality to stand out. With higher ceilings, a larger bar, more televisions and barbecue additions to the menu, this Tap takes burgers "that fall somewhere in the middle, rethinking the American icon while still celebrating it." The somewhat typical traditional bar food offerings are elevated to "taste much better than those at your typical bar." [Westword]
