I'll admit it, I've been wanting to return to Roscoe's for years to try their sandwiches. I ran into the one in downtown Fullerton years ago for a quick drink late at night, but I felt later on that I didn't receive the full experience. Back to today, knowing that Heroe's Bar & Grill is a partner of Roscoe's, I expected huge portions of solid food. Yep.

The inside has a rustic feel with old signs and other display's hanging from the ceiling. There's a display counter with cakes, cheese, and gourmet sodas near the kitchen. A large outdoor patio sits overlooking Pipeline Avenue. A rectangular bar sits in the middle of the action, and a large window looking eastward provides plenty of sunlight for everyone inside.

Two rows of a dozen taps sit in the middle of the bar, with each row of taps sitting opposite of each other. The tap list is not for the beer geek at all, but it does have a few finds. Firestone DBA and Union Jack, Widmer OKTO, and Hoegaarden are among the highlights of a dominating macro crowd. Three sizes are offered for the beers: 16 oz (actually 14 oz because of the cheater pints), 22 oz schooner, and 34 oz mug.

I received good attention from the staff while sitting at the bar. I was checked up freqently and my food came out quick. While on the subject of food, come hungry. Seriously, come hungry or ask for a to-go box. My BBQ beef sandwich was big and needed a fork to get through, the curly fries were a meal of its own. In fact, I'm still stuffed from my meal as I type this 5 hours later! And before I forget, the food is good.

Beer destination? No. Beer and food destination? It will do.

Food is really good. Very large portions and you can split everything for $2 which gets you double the side order so it's not a ripoff, and actually make the prices a bargain.

Beer list is ok. 24 taps or something like that and while most of them are your regular bar stuff. But they do keep Firestone Union Jack on, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and whatever Sierra Nevada seasonal is out. So don't be disappointed if you're expecting lots of microbrews, this is pretty much it.

Service is always real quick and servers can be fun, especially if the manager Rod is there. There's no single server per table, everyone helps each other out, so you grab whoever happens to be walking by if you want something.

I go here a lot and always enjoy myself. I'd like it if there were more microbrews to choose from, but in this area there's really no where else to get a microwbrew anyways other than BJ's unless you're willing to drive real far.
