The Conclusion: We were a little disappointed that the happy hour menu only had six items when the main menu has a dizzying amount of choices. However, the main menu has a few choices in the happy hour price range like the House Tacos for $3.50 each.
The Green Room Hummus ($3) is made in-house and come on a platter with pita and sliced cucumber. The cuke we got looked like it got too cold in the fridge, it was a little limp on the edges and only crisp in the center. Some bites of hummus were well rounded and flavorful, and others were almost straight jalapeno.
The Chicken Flautas ($3), however, were delicious. The tortillas were crisp on the outside with seasoned, tender chicken on the inside and the tomatillo sauce was bright and flavorful.
