23 Aug Lazy Dog Opening in Cypress
Lazy Dog Opening in Cypress
Cypress gained a gem with this restaurant that serves its own beer. Despite the name, it’s far more than a hot dog joint!
1960 and 290 has been a total mess for the last few years, so this is a great spot to stop and wait til the traffic dies down. Even if you’re not waiting in traffic, Lazy Dog is worth the drive from other parts of town.
Brunch menus and late-night food options, like a gourmet hot dog, help paint the picture of a thoughtfully crafted menu. They also feature happy hours and reverse happy hours for certain menu items, like the aforementioned lone dog.
I had the pulled pork sandwich because it was one of the lower-calorie items on the menu, and I was about to drink a flight. The fact that they show the calories of all the menu items is pretty cool too. My wife appreciated that big time.
Rustic log chandeliers and license plate Americana make for a homey vibe that’s far short of tchotchkes. The high vaulted ceilings lined with unfinished beams add to the vibe, and they help keep the noise down a little.
For a spot that just opened up, we expected the servers to not be fully trained yet. Our server knew his stuff for the most part. The questions he couldn’t answer, he asked somebody and returned quickly with our answer. I was impressed.
Let’s be honest. That’s why you’re here. Lazy Dog Opening in Cypress brings with it some of their own craft beer options, and they’re all dang good.
Blonde, Heff, Red, IPA and Hazy IPA round out their flight of 4oz pours, and they add a seasonal brew for an even 6. Every beer was clean, true to style, and full of all the right flavors and aromas. The Hazy wasn’t very hazy, but what it lacked in appearance, it made up two fold in flavor and aroma.
Overall, Lazy Dog opening in Cypress is good news for folks on the Northwest side of town! With half a dozen beer spots opening up in the last 2 years, clearly there’s a demand.
Here’s to more craft beer in Cypress, and beers to you, Houston!
