Even though I live pretty close by, and it's a hop, skip and a jump from the Franklin C stop, Doris never really became a regular spot for me.
Sure, they have a great backyard, a decent happy hour ($5 draught beer, $2 off other stuff) that even runs for extra long on weekends, a solid drink selection, music from a wide selection of vinyl, chill bartenders, cool gold matchbooks, micheladas, and a hip southwest inspired interior that I can't be mad at.
But, they also had a fatal flaw (for me at least) - being cash only....
I recently decided to pop by after work just to shake things up a bit. I sat at the bar. Ready to order a drink. My fists of cash ready to go. There were a couple people who had just ordered so I waited patiently, only to be floored moments later after witnessing the person who just got their drinks paying WITH A CREDIT CARD. WAT!? I searched the bar - credit card machine, spotted. Along with a pile of cards from other like minded folk who were, no doubt, also relishing this moment.
So yeah, good job Doris. Welcome to the present.
I can't not mention the fact that they also have food from my favorite grilled cheese truck, Morris Truck.
Will definitely be stopping by a bit more often.
