Doc's Motorworks Restaurant Review

: Start with the South Congress egg rolls --- a distinctive take on the Asian variety --- at this laid-back hotspot, where the extra crispy rolls are filled with diced chicken or beef picadillo and served with a creamy cilantro dipping sauce. We also like the chargrilled burgers, especially the blue cheese burger slathered with spicy peppercorn sauce and accompanied by thick, homemade skin-on fries or onion rings. Wash it down with a super-cold microbrew from the long list. Hot wings come bone-in or boneless, the latter of which will satisfy those wary of the mess but still seeking the heat. Feeling a little adventurous? Go for the chicken-fried avocado. Yep, chicken-fried and stuffed with diced chicken and cheese, it's topped with tomatillo cream sauce. Kick back on the spacious patio in one of the bright-colored metal lawn chairs for good people-watching, or chill inside the raised painted garage doors at the air-conditioned bar with its six HDTV flat screens, a pool table and shuffleboard. Daily specials and happy hours are big hits with the budget-conscious set.
