    This place has amazing food, great beer and a punk rock-chic dining room where folks from a spectrum of backgrounds sit side by side, to enjoy briskets and pound upon pound of chicken wings. The serving staff are part of the loose punk rock aesthetic, acting vaguely disinterested in the guests, nearly to the point of rudeness but never crossing the line, while still managing to score points for accuracy and efficiency. An all around experience with great food.

    Fantastic food and decent prices! The Palomino is a fantastic place for a few beers, as well as delicious smoked meat. The server was excellent, and the meal was fantastic. I got a huge portion (brisket, half rack of ribs, and two sides for $26).

    Very good poutine and fries. Place does look sketchy walking up to it. However staff is very nice and food is great.

    Love the Palomino! Go for the live music, stay for the atmosphere. This bar is super cool and the bar food served upstairs is good! Service is always great as well.

    Great food with friendly staff. The building has a good vibe to it. If your near by I highly recommend the bacon wrapped corn on the cob.

    Possibly the best smokehouse in town. The mac and cheese is amazing, their smoked meats are tender and savory. Delicious dinners and quickly prepared lunches.
