Happy Hour at Atomic Cowboy: A Small Taste of Fresh Mex in the Grove
The Verdict: Aside from its nachos, the happy hour menu doesn't seem to showcase any so-called "Fresh Mex" flavors. That said, the chips slathered in queso and a good amount of toppings doesn't disappoint. The indulgent cheese sauce sits on the bottom of the bowl, so gobble up the crispy chips before they get soggy. We preferred texture and taste of the veggie option, featuring sauteed squash, over that of the standard seasoned ground beef.
The wings, dressed in barbecue sauce, will please those who favor sweet over savory poultry, but they lack a kick. The crisp fries was low on seasoning, but we liked the price. The discounted local beers are a nice touch. All in all, Atomic Cowboy's happy hour is passable at its low price point, so we recommend stopping in for a snack if you're in the neighborhood but not bothering if it's out of the way. Brunch instead, perhaps?
