The Low Down
What to Drink: Stick to beer (the wine choices are slim)--60-ounce pitchers of imports like Erdinger Weizenbier and Bitburger Premium are just $20, and Coors Light is a steal at $14 if you want to drink American.
Know Before You Go: There's no waiting list to get a table outside, so the best strategy is to hover (politely!) and grab one as people settle up their bills and leave.
The Extras: Dogs are allowed if they are tied up on the outside railing next to your table.
