How I heard of this place: Yelp. In search of a spot to share a meal with friends before rushing to the Woodland Park Zoo for WildLights, we came across The Park. With four stars (“Yay! I’m a fan.), it’s pub grub, and proximity to the Zoo, plus being child-friendly, we were sold.

Type of cuisine: Pub Grub. Sliders, pretzels and chicken wings to start; pulled pork and reuben sandwiches, burgers, nachos and fish ‘n chips, there is a little something for everyone. A happy hour menu is also offered between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Ambiance: Dark, dimly lit space with checkered floors and booth seating as well as table/chair seating,

televisions viewable from all areas of the establishment, holiday decoration in full bloom,

and a bar for beer-lovers,

the space is quite old, un-updated and very much a neighborhood joint.

What I ordered: To start, Spam Sliders ($9.95): spam glazed with sweet chili sauce, fried egg, spring mix, Sriracha aioli on Macrina’s mini brioche.

Our next course was a haphazard variety of our favorite-looking items on the menu, including the Park Cheesy Tots ($10.95): tator tots, cheese sauce, bacon, Sriracha aioli, crema, green onions,

Happy Hour 1/2 order Park Nachos ($6): cheese, black olives, jalapenos, green onions, pico de gallo, black beans, guacamole, lime crema,

and Happy Hour Taco Truck Tacos ($5): three with pork, chicken or veggie (all three must be the same).

Two orders for the Maple Bacon Burger ($14.95 each): maple bourbon-glazed bacon, roasted garlic cream cheese, lettuce, tomato completed the evening’s selections.

What I loved: Above all, and most surprisingly, the Spam Sliders were easily the front-runner of our meal.

Why I loved it: A neighborhood eatery with no frills, perfect for accompanying children, and a limited, hard-working staff that worked their bottoms off serving the crowds in as timely a manner as possible on a busy evening.

Cost: Low to average ($10 – $14 per dinner entrée)
