The place was slammed on this particular Wednesday night. This was most likely attributed to the happy hour deals, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s crowded every night of the week. The hour long wait time for a table was not a big deal because of the great four sided, enclosed bar. It is huge and one of the four sides opens up to a large elevated patio. It felt like a classy beach bar where people were not afraid to come up and introduce themselves.
Wednesday night’s happy hour features 2-4-1 margaritas, sangrias, and a few other drink options. The margaritas have a distinctive twist as they can be ordered as regular or ginger/rosemary. The sangria can be summed up into two words: fruity and boozy.
The food deals weren’t bad either. Burritos and tacos are half price bringing the total for a burrito to a little over $6. So, on a Wednesday night, you can make out with a couple of drinks and a big burrito for less than $20. Not bad for such a trendy place. Also to be mentioned is the house-made guacamole. Very delicious.
The diners and drinkers were roughly 90% young professionals and college students in their mid to late 20s. It was obvious that some had simply popped in after work as men were in their work suits and women in their business attire. This is definitely a great place for after-work drinks and to mingle even on a weeknight.
If you’re a country music fan, you’d be fascinated to know that singer Brett Eldredge has frequently been spotted dining here. In fact, I spotted him and his posy with my own eyes!
Saint Anejo is without a doubt the place to be for the younger crowd.
