Twenty Highland Tavern: Happy Hour Report Card

The Interior: If you drive up to 4701 N. 20th St. and think you're in the wrong place because we directed you to Whole Foods, look a little closer. Yes, there is a bar located inside the grocery store. We love being able to stop at one place to grab a happy hour special before doing some mindless shopping.

If you don't want to walk through the store, there is a door toward the right side of Whole Foods. The space is bright with light, natural wood at every turn. There is a long bar with plenty of seating, a community table and plenty of tables.

The Food: Happy hour deals only applied to drinks, which is pretty disappointing. With a menu ranging from $4 to $11, there are still a few good deals. Plus, there are daily specials.

We decided to start with the green chili beer cheese dip. We were not disappointed. The dip came out hot with pretzel bread that was toasted just right. It was creamy with small pieces of scallions and a kick from Sriracha sauce. The only complaint here was that there wasn't more sauce.

Then we opted for the lemon chicken for $6. There was too much breading for our liking, although the lemon sauce was balanced and fresh. Warning, rice is an extra $1 charge.
