After 5: Happy Hour at Copper Canyon Grill in Boca Raton

December 3rd, 2010 · No Comments

Happy hours: 4-7 p.m. and 9 p.m.-close daily.

The crowd: It was quiet the Saturday we visited, with just a few folks gathered around the bar.

Surrounds: It has a Southwest, California feel. Think lots of rock and timbers. Chickens roast on a large rotisserie in the back of the place. The bar is at the center, with black granite counters and plenty of seating.

Barback:.Our bartender was friendly and informative. She made good menu suggestions, and made us feel welcome, though we had to wait a few minutes before we were greeted.

The sips:.Two for one on premium house cocktails and Yuengling and Miller Light beers.

The noshes: The happy hour menu was small, but appetizing. The wings ($3.25) were a stack of honest-to-goodness chicken wings — no drumettes — served in a slightly sweet, spicy Asian sauce. A plate of Kobe sliders ($3.25) — two small burgers served with a side of fries — was a meal in itself. The nachos ($3.25)  also were a nice portion of warm tortilla chips topped with salsa and melted cheese.

Tunes or noise: Recorded instrumental jazz was on the soundtrack the evening we visited. Then a trio performed the second half of happy hour.

Rating: 3 1/2 out of 5 olives.
