The Local Post officially opened on January 18 on the popular Burnet Rd corridor. The comfortable space has been revamped into an inviting neighborhood pub and family-friendly restaurant (see hours) located in the heart of Crestview. Guests will find Texas comfort food, excellent happy hour specials, ample free parking, indoor arcade games, spacious patio and big-screen TVs.
Here is a look at some of the menu items we sampled during a recent tasting:
|Brisket Sliders at the Local Post|
The Smoked Brisket Sliders are on a sweet doughy bun and topped with melted Monterey Jack cheese, pickled onions and a black pepper barbecue sauce giving it a little kick.
|Bacon and Cheddar Burger at the Local Post|
The hearty Bacon and Cheddar Burger is served on a delicious pretzel bun and has crisp lettuce, slices of tomato, onions served with choice of regular or curly fries. Guests may also add an egg for $1.50.
|Lemon Garlic Hummus at the Local Post|
For a lighter, option I recommend the delightful Lemon Garlic Hummus served with soft pita and crisp carrots.
|Blackened Tuna Sandwich at the Local Post|
One of my favorite bites of the evening was this generously portioned Blackened Tuna Sandwich. The nicely seasoned tuna is on a puffy brioche bun topped with a unique avocado slaw, tomatoes and an addicting Jalapeño Lime Aioli.
|Chimichanga at the Local Post|
The sizable Chimichangas at the Local Post are no joke! You can have your choice of Tex-Mex, Pollo Blanco, Al Pastor or the Mexicano. Add some more deliciousness by adding chili.
|Happy Hour Cocktail at the Local Post|
