After a long football season, Frank and I had a Sunday off together. We took a drive to Boulder City. We hunted for treasures in a couple antique stores before grabbing lunch at Boulder Dam Brewing Co. We've never been before, so it was fun to have a look around and watch the footage from when the dam was built. There is a good selection of brews; we enjoyed Hells Hole and Bypass. We looked over the menu and the patty melt ($8.95) with swiss and mushrooms sounded tasty. We also tried the queso and salsa ($6.95).
The queso was pretty darn good, it never congealed like many do and it had a nice kick. The burgers were a little overdone, underseasoned and the bread was toasted; grilled with a bit of butter would have been preferred. Prices are reasonable and service is friendly. There's a large patio ideal for beautiful sunny days. It's a great stop when visiting the dam or even a day exploring Boulder City is well spent.
