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 with your bar food fare? 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 brightly 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.
