Went here sunday 11/8/09. Sat outside as to not wait for a table. They have a pretty good list of taps to choose from. I ended up going with a pint of Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout at $6. It was the worst beer pour imaginable. I was outside so I did not witness it, so I'm not sure if the waitress poured the beer or bartender. The glass came to me with about 3/4 head and 1/4 beer, I was in conversation when it showed up so I waited untill the beer settled and it ended up less then 3/4 full, I informed the waitress she looked confused and came back with the beer topped off but still not a proper poor. The food is good and in large quantity.

Great college bar if you want a happening spot with a fun atmosphere and a wide range of beer choices. However, for beer geeks this in not a place to find any "special" beers. Although they had what seemed like a 50 draft beers, 80-90% of them are really nothing special -all of these are regularly available at most supermarkets. Out of the 6-7 left that were interesting, 4 were tapped out.

Prices:
The nachos were a good deal, a half order of nachos was enough for 3 people.

Beer:
6$ for a 13oz pint of local microbrew (non-belgian)seems a little high in my book.

Overall:
Great place to party. If you're really looking for good beer, go to Taps Fish House, blows this place out of the water for quality of beer.

I like Heroes. I usually visit once a month or so and I've been going for a few years.

It's always packed and it's always loud. Even when the place is a zoo, I usually have no problem walking up to the bar and getting a beer.

They have some where around 100 taps and there are always a few beers worth trying. They are light on the smaller craftier micro brews but have plenty of Anderson Valley, Firestone and Stone. There's a respectable selection of German/British imports.

The food portions are huge. Really, they're too big. The food is okay. It's never great and rarely bad.

It's worth a visit if you are in the mood to drink a lot.

A hopping bar and grill in Fullerton. I went there during early january 2004, and they still had christmas lights up everywhere, which made the place much too well lit. However, they had a great beer selection, and serve giant 40oz mugs of good beer. I only had 1, as I had come there from the bar next door, but it was an Erdinger hefeweizen. I didn't count, but I'd guess over 40 beers on tap or more. Good selection!

Atmosphere is young and trendy, but there were also a few families to be seen. Service was cute and flirtatious, which I liked. And we never found ourselves waiting to be served. The only food we ordered were some nachos, which were too much food for the 6 of us. Yes. You read that right, it's a lot of nachos.

I will definitely be back.

Heroes is located on the main drag in Fullerton on Harbor/Sante Fe. There is parking on the street throughout the area.

The space is fairly large with lots of high tables and the bar near one entrance. Table seating is more prevalent near the other entrance. The bar boasts a huge mirror and there are bison heads along with a clear view of all the taps. There are peanut shells everywhere as they are passed out to all patrons. In addition there is a beer menu available.

As for the taps, there are at least 100 which is amazing. However on closer inspection more than half are macros or common brews. Still there are plenty of gems including New Belgium, Pyramid, Stone, The Bruery, Bootlegger, Karl Strauss, Kona, Moylan's and many more. A good amount of imports as well.

Service was good on a weekday early evening. The bartenders had a good grasp of the beer list and made other recommendations on beer spots in the area.

I did not have any food on this visit (other than peanuts).

Overall this is a good spot to hit in Fullerton. Not the best to place to go if you want to try new brews all night but worthwhile nonetheless.

Another place that I visit frequently...this is a great place to get some good beer! Located next to Fullerton College, many college students venture here to not only meet the opposite sex...but to obtain some good quality beer. Heroe's has a great selection of beer...I would say roughly 60 to 80 beers on tap. There is only two things I would have to criticize about there selection. First of all, they don't seem to change out any of there beers. Secondly, they don't have enough stouts. LOL. Other then that, this is a great place to go when you just want to hang out with your buddies and grab a pint.

(Revised 8/18/09)

The highlight for any beer drinker walking around downtown Fullerton, Heroe's offers a large number of taps, a friendly sports bar atmosphere, and huge portions of food. Even when it gets packed, there's plenty of room to stand around while you drink. The bar area is dominated with hundreds of black and white photos, several televisions, and assorted beer signage. Speaking of beer....

Although there's plenty of mass-produced beer here, there's also plenty of solid to very good craft beer here, as well as higher-end imports. The beers always tastes fresh, but they serve their beer in smaller 14 ounce shakers, not 16 ounce pints. The beer is already expensive here....a 14 ounce Newcastle goes for $6, which comes to a $6.86 pint!! It's one of the most expensive pints in OC. Another downside is the beer selection rarely changes. On a more positive note, you get to choose from beers like Arrogant Bastard, Firestone, Anderson Valley, Kostritzer, Lindeman's Pomme, Bootlegger's, Chimay White, Fuller's, and lots more (prices may vary). If you feel adventurous, go for a 32 ounce mug (about $11).

The food is served in HUUGGEEE portions. The sandwiches are quite sizeable, but they give you enough fries to feed a group of three (I'm not kidding). But more importantly, it's pretty good.

Its lack of beer rotation and many mass-appeal macros keep this bar out of the Beachwood BBQ/Hollingshead's class of OC bars. That being said, I would recommend this place to any beer lover or sport bar aficionado.
