Mockingbird Taproom To Open Next Month

The folks behind Mockingbird Taproom announced a December opening date and a tentative menu for the new 40-tap sports bar located in Mockingbird Station. The release comes on the heels of an announcement of a Smashburger opening in the coming weeks in the same location.

The new sports bar boasts 20 plasma TVs and claims to offer gastropub cuisine, but I'm not seeing much "gastro fare" in the attached menu.

The menu makes no mention of pâté, roast chickens, hand-crafted ingredients, bangers or other Anglophile references I've come to associate with gastropubs. Really, it looks more like run-of-the-mill pub grub.

There will be burgers (of course) offered with various toppings and quirky names. The Texas Slammer comes topped with brisket chili and jalapeños, and Vader's Revenge boasts a black-pepper crust and two fried eggs.

If wings are your thing, you can order them sauced from mild to Y.G.H.U.T., which apparently stands for "you're gonna hate us tomorrow." (I'm still partial to Bryan Street Tavern's claim that their thermonuclear wings will "cluck you up," but clearly the burning ass jokes with respect to piquancy aren't going anywhere anytime soon.)

The rest of the menu offers Tex-Mex style tacos and various sandwiches.
