I've been to the sunset grill and tap a number of times. While more often than not, the beers are great I have orderd a few that were a bit off - either lines, or aging kegs

I haven't had much trouble with interesting beers being out of stock. They seem to reprint the tap menu as often as possible, but it just can't keep up. I'd recommend checking out the 5 freshest taps chalkboard by the bar before taking a seat. A lot of those taps aren't on the printed list.

The tex-mex/american pub fair menu is diverse but the food is unremarkable. It is priced for the college crowd. This crowd also tends to pack the place on the weekends, so plan to go early or equipped to deal with a packed pub.

Went here maybe 2 months ago & was impressed by the huge draft list. However, literally the first 5 beers I ordered from it they had "just run out of." Food was pretty solid though.
