Westside Motor Lounge
We’ve found our favorite weekend hang at Westside Motor Lounge, which revamped three auto repair shops to create a spacious eat-and-play complex that features two bars, a roomy seating area, and sprawling green space with yard games. We love that they’ve embraced the auto theme with strong cocktails like their bourbon-heavy Hubcap Halo and the frozen Pink Cadillac Margarita while retaining a few repair shop remnants like glass garage doors and a neon ‘Service’ sign. There are also shuffleboard and cornhole games, but in true hater form, we just prefer to heckle other players between bites of the creamy, five-cheese mac—our favorite thing on the menu thanks to the addition of jalapeño cornbread crumbles that add a tiny burst of spiciness and crunch. Our runner-up is the juicy smash burger, which has a good-sized patty despite being smashed on the grill.
