Soaking Up the Scenery
If you’ve never visited a Twin Peaks restaurant, you will be pleasantly surprised when you walk through the doors for the first time. Many have compared Twin Peaks to Hooters due to the friendly, attractive young ladies who go out of their way to make your visit memorable. But Twin Peaks appeal goes far beyond chatty, smiling girls in tight- fitting clothing. Twin Peaks is designed to look like a mountain lodge, with a rustic atmosphere that features mounted deer, coyotes, etc., wooded walls and seating, and other accompaniments that make you feel like you’re hanging out with friends in the highest reaches of the Rocky Mountains.
Another appealing aspect of the atmosphere is sports. Yes, Twin Peaks Restaurant is a sports bar as much as it’s a mountain lodge and there are dozens of high definition flat screen televisions for your viewing pleasure. The location I recently visited went a step further, offering smaller, private television sets in the booth seating. This way, guests have their own television and can watch whatever they like.
Not Just a Happy Hour
Beer is an important part of any Twin Peaks Restaurant visit and many will be surprised to learn that Twin Peaks actually operates its own brewery! The Twin Peaks Brewery is located in the Dallas, Texas area and it brews beer for serving at the restaurants. In the near future, they will be canning their beer and selling it at retail outlets as well, but for now, you will have to visit your nearest Twin Peaks if you want to partake. The Twin Peaks brewed beer is pretty good and, like all of the draft beer, it is served at chilly temperatures- around 29 degrees Fahrenheit, to be exact. They also serve the beer in a frosted mug, for an even greater sensation of coldness.
As for the new Happier Hour, it’s the perfect way to make a memorable visit even better, elevating an ordinary happy hour to something, well, happier. Twin Peaks Restaurants serve food in categories that include Bites, Soups & Salads, Hot Dishes, Burgers & Sandwiches, and Desserts. During Happier Hour at the Houston locations, specialty beverages like Tito’s Tea, Moscow Mules, Jack Smash, Hard Cherry Cider, and the Bulleit Rye Old Fashioned, are sold for only $5 each. Large, 22 oz. beers are offered for $1 off, and that includes all of the craft beers on the menu. “Girl-Size”, 10 oz. Drafts are only $1, all day, every day, on select brews.
With food, Twin Peaks Happier Hour prices reduce the cost to only $5 on menu items such as Blackened Chicken Quesadillas, Mozzarella Cheese Bites, Fried Pickles, Billionaire’s Bacon, Chipotle Queso & Chips, and Chili. During the weekday, the Happier Hour menu is expanded to include Twin Peaks boneless wings, prepared with a lemon pepper or spicy Cajun rub, or with a variety of sauces including jalapeño butter, Nashville hot, the classic, blazing, smoky sweet BBQ, garlic Parmesan, or spicy Thai chili sauce for the same low price of $5. I’ve had the boneless chicken wings with sweet BBQ and the Blackened Chicken Quesadillas. I liked both, but I was partial to the Blackened Chicken Quesadillas. The addition of pepper jack and cheddar cheese, green chiles, black beans, roasted corn, salsa, sour cream, and pico de gallo combined for a tasty meal that matched up nicely with my craft beer.
Bar Food, Beer, and Viewing Pleasure
Twin Peaks Restaurant is a great place to hang out, eat, drink, and take in the surrounding scenery. The pub style food, lodge atmosphere, televised sports action, and lovely ladies are certain to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Twin Peaks was one of those restaurants I was fully aware of and had heard others talk about, but had never visited until recently. I can’t really explain why it took so long, but now that I have visited, I can see (literally!) what the hype is all about. With a combination of food, beer, booze, and sports in a mountain lodge atmosphere, it is easily a place most men will find to their liking. Women may like it to, but I admit that the atmosphere is like a man- cave and will appeal mostly to the males among us.
Happier Hour is something exclusive to the Houston, Texas area Twin Peaks Restaurants, but other Twin Peaks locations have special deals of their own. To track down your nearest Twin Peaks, visit locations online and if you want to learn more about the restaurant in general, visit www.TwinPeaksRestaurant.com. It’s a feast for the basic human senses and desires, so make your way to your nearest Twin Peaks. And tell them Great Beer Now sent you.
