We'd passed by Three Rivers many times, but always on the way to somewhere else. This time though, we made sure to stop and were so glad we did; amazing atmosphere, food and staff. JJ, our waitress, is a firecracker personality; so ask for her when you go to dine in. While you can dine in the bar area; there is a separate restaurant part in the next room; plenty of seating (tables, small and large booths).
Three Rivers has an eight page menu; something for everyone's tastes! We started off with the Onion Rings appetizer; crunchy goodness with a homemade buttermilk ranch dressing. We so wanted to order another round of onion rings, but needed to keep room for the main meals.
One of the menu pages is "Daily Specials"; we were there on a Monday, so I started with a cup of the Baked Potato soup; luscious, packed with potatoes, bacon and chives.
The sandwich for the day was the Smokehouse Cubano; tender pork, onion, pickle, on pressed bread; and Yes! I ordered bacon for it which enhanced the whole experience.
I'd met some folks from Farmington awhile back, who had highly recommended Three Rivers Brewery; and told us to try the Drunken Steak Sandwich. This was hubby's main meal, but I had a bite; oh my goodness, so tender and juicy!!! This definitely hit the top of the awesomeness scale.
Two relatives had joined us for lunch; one had the Garden Burger with a side of black beans; she surely raved about those beans, but enjoyed the burger too.
The other had a half pound burger special (2 - 1/4 pound burgers stacked) with more onion rings); nothing left on her plate, so you know it was that good!
Now I had already perused the dessert menu and saw that Tres Leches cake was listed; here was my chance to finally try this cake out. I only ate half my sandwich to make sure I had room for this treat. The cake is light with a, not unexpected, milky taste; it was almost like a palette cleanser and yummy treat all wrapped up into one. Definitely would have this cake again!
If you're in the Farmington, New Mexico area and want a unique dining experience, Three Rivers Brewery has what it takes...atmosphere, friendly staff, awesome food.
