This place has some of the HOTTEST green chile I have ever had! I have to get the half and half (half mild half HOT...but it's still HOT). My husband gets the hot and I've looked over at him and he is sweating! (ha) The queso is great.

We had dinner here tonight and there was nothing good about it.

The wait staff was unfriendly from the start when we asked to switch from a table with the air blowing right on us.

We ordered drinks and a queso to start, the drinks were fine, beer was beer, but the margarita was mostly sweet and sour mix. The queso arrived and was basically a blob of Velveeta in a bowl of greasy too salty green chili served with what tasted lake discount chips from the bag.

Our entrees were more of the same, and were disappointing at best. I ordered a meal that included tortillas and they arrived barely warm and on a styrofoam plate and were clearly store bought.

Our waitress was too busy propping herself against the bar too check back with us while we looked for water and a simple "how is everything?? She finally came back when our plates were pushed forward and brought us boxes.

All in all, not a good experience at all. We will not go back.

Go to Jack n Grill on Federal and 25th it??s a million times better!

AS SOMEONE FROM THE EAST COAST, WHO DOES NOT KNOW MEXICAN FOOD FROM A HOLE IN THE WALL, BREWERY BAR IS THE BEST! GREEN CHILE TO DIE FOR! I LOVE IT! WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING EVENCLOSE IN CT. BUT, AFTER GOING THERE FOR MANY YEARS, WAY BEFORE 3 AND 4 CAME AROUND, I DO HAVE TO SAY THAT THE PORTIONS ARE GETTING KINDA SKIMPY. I NEVER HAVE THAT WONDERFUL POOL OF EXTRA GREEN CHILE WHEN I AM DONE EATING, THAT I JUST HAVE TO GET ANOTHER TORTILLA TO MOP IT ALL UP! SEEMS TO ME, WHEN THE WHOLE COMPUTER THING CAME AROUND AT BB2, THINGS JUST GOT A LITTLE MORE CORPORATE. WE STILL LOVE YOU BB2, STAFF, FOOD, ETC. WE HAVE OUR THOUGHTS ON WHY THE BIG CHANGE!!!

Whether you like at Hot or mild, the green chili is the best in Denver. Great chips and salsa and Margaritas. The fiesta chicken salad (barely a salad, smothered in Green chili) is one of our favorites. The place has the atmosphere of an outdated sports bar but it has a good energy inside and service is fast and friendly. This is a classic dive bar but with great Mexican food.

The Brewery Bar II was a great place to have our going away party of 15 and a baby. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was great and decently priced. But, we made the mistake of not asking what the price before ordering 5 pitchers of margs. Normally with that many people it's always a better deal to do it that way. When we received our bill of $360, $180 was just for the margaritas. It was $36 for each pitcher! yikes. The waitress said they were so expensive because they're so good, but we all agreed that they are not THAT good. If your looking for some decent Mexican food and plan to go out early (they literally kick you out at 9pm on Saturday nights) then I recommend this place. Their margaritas are not worth the price.

This used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant in town -- it seemed you could put that famous green chile on just about anything and it would tast great. The last few times I have been to Brewery Bar II, however, they have been off their game. The chile no longer knocks my sox off -- it's just not as hot or tasty anymore. One pitcher of supposedly top-shelve margaritas was so bad, we had to send it back. And, is it just me or have the burritos been shrinking lately? I had to double check to make sure they had not wrapped my burrito in a taco-size tortilla -- I mean this thing was WAY smaller than I remember! What's up BBII? I still love your funky vibe, but a girl's gotta eat, too!

Traditionally, this joint has had awesome, spicy green chile that was chok full of tender pork. The last time I ate there, the pork content had drastically declined. Maybe it's going through the same situation as the Blue Bonnet on Broadway when the ownership/mgmt. changed and the new people tried to squeeze more $$$ out of the product, with disappointing results for diners. (greed) I know rhat the BB11 also has changed hands and I can only assume that this same situation is occuring. I.ll give it one more shot.

I visited the park meadows location so I will move my review over to that one. The menus look the same online so I bet they are similar.

After hearing from many people,reading several mags, I finaly went to Brewery bar2 home of the best chili in town. I beg to differ! I ordered a smothered burrito with the hottest chili they had. When my food arrived it looked like watery tomato soup with very little green chilis in it. Spicy? no! I could get more heat from a Taco Bell hot sauce packet. The only thing good about the "green chili" was it had good chunks of pork. If you want real green chili +hot Santiagos(various Denver locations) is still the place to beat. Sorry BB2.

What a place to hang out and have a beer with no loud music and good food. It's not the best I have ever had but I ate it all.

I know quite a few people that think their standard Mexican fare is decent and I agree. But I think the reason to come here is because they have the best salsa, guac, rellenos and like most Mexican food lovers, their green chile is the tastiest ever...amazing. And their beers are big and cheap. Oh yeah, if you think this place is expensive, your next obvious choice is Taco Bell. The Brewery Bar is a great value, has great staff and is a super, old-school Denver, no frills atmosphere.

Chew on a Jalapeno, because this is not green chile, it reminds me of chicken broth with corn starch and blended jalapenos, at least its a shade of green, where's the chile?
And the prices, ala-carte will break your bank, and the food is not what I expected. But have a few drinks (six to be exact) and anything tastes good. This place is a "bar" that serves food, I like to eat at a restaurant that serves drinks. Wake up Denver, your taste buds are drunk!

Brewery Bar II still has the BEST guacamole anywhere. Their green chili continues to win awards, and they are well deserved. Depending on the day, it may be hotter or milder, but never disappointing. The chili rellenos are also fantastic

Okay- it's not the ambiance. Leave the kids at home. It's got GREAT MEXICAN FOOD. Deep Fried Chile Renios stuffed with Cheese- how about adding crab Abe? I'll pay the price. I travel from Seattle to eat here. Don't go after 10pm- the neighborhood is still rough.

A fixture for quite a number of years in Denver, this is an easily accessible restaurant in the downtown area (get there by 11:30 for lunch) with the tastiest and HOTTEST green chile in town. Bob, Jamie and Dave are "the best" behind the bar....

They have the absolute best chili relleno around. The guac is to die for; the salsa beats no one; the chili -- oh chihuahua! Not to mention the margies.

Brewery Bar is amazing. The margaritas are hands down the best in Denver. (I"ve tried many). Three margs and you're buzzing like a bee. The food is amazing. Try a #1 chicken, half & half. It's the best 7 bills you'll ever spend.

Brewery Bar II has the best, freshest guac in town...Nothing canned, bland, or overly blended. It is a must to order this regardless if your hungry or not.
Hours of operation are a bit odd so be sure to call to make sure they are open. Also, although service is quick its always packed to plan on waiting for a table no matter what time you go.

If you like watery, "green" chile, sloshed over dense, soggy rellenos (made with eggroll wrappers), don't miss this popular spot. 1 burrito/relleno combination, 1 soft drink = $11.00.

I lived in Denver for 14 years and frequented the Brewery Bar II often. Their green chile is to die for... not to mention one of the best sinus medicines in town. I recently moved to Alaska and was going through green chile widthdraws. My wife visited Denver this year and she shipped two quarts of their chile to me -- what a gal. It was deffinately worth the cost of freezing and shipping this culinary extraviganza! It didn't last long, but I cherished every drop. Thanks guys -- you have the best chile in my book!
