Doc's Motorworks Restaurant Review

: Want sliders? Doc’s has all your options covered via a trio of mini cheeseburgers, buffalo chicken, pork carnitas, fried fish or bacon-avocado-tomato sliders. If you’re more into the adult-size version, we suggest 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.
