The Hoppy Gnome menu will focus on fresh ingredients, striving to exceed the dining expectations of our guests. We feature a “scratch” kitchen which gives us a unique capability to cater to the many needs and desires of our guests. Tacos are our focus but we are much more, the taco is simply the delivery vehicle for the culinary creations wrapped inside. You’ll see everything from duck confit, to korean short rib, to a basic “taqueria” style taco. The menu will rotate two to four times a year, and in addition to tacos; appetizers, salads and tortas will round out the menu. Open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week.

I LOVED it! A friend and I went there to talk and catch up and it was the perfect place! Highly recommended! Also, the wait staff was amazing! Very professional and knowledgeable and didn’t rush us AT ALL! We tipped accordingly!

very happy to use Opentable to reserve a table for us. The table we had was very close to the kitchen which made it very entertaining to watch the food preparation. The tacos I ordered were excellent using fresh ingredients. The other entrees that we ordered were excellent as expected and the service was very attentive to us during our stay.
Highly recommend and we will be back.

A bit noisy because of the hard surfaces reflecting noise. Excellent variety and unique food choices

This has become one of our favorite restaurants in town. Excellent food in a casual environment and fair prices to match. In addition, we thought our server was exceptional (knowledgeable, attentive without being “pushy”, etc).

My boyfriend and I went to Hoppy Gnome recently on a Saturday night. We were grabbing dinner before a movie. We had a reservation and when we arrived we were asked if a high top table in the bar would be okay. I thought that this was a little strange since usually with a reservation you get a table and preferred seating. A few seconds later, a manager suggested a different table to the hostess and asked us if we preferred a booth or table. We said either was fine. We were seated at a table, in the corner, by the large windows—giving us a great view of the Allen County Courthouse and some of the nearby buildings downtown. We could even see a few Christmas lights/decorations. It was the perfect table.

We ordered the chips, salsa and guacamole to start. Our food came out quickly after ordering. Maybe a little too quick—as we were just starting to settle in to our conversation and beers and starting to enjoy our starter.

We had ordered the pork shank entree and a mac and cheese special (with steak tips and peppers and onions). The pork shank entree was served on a bed of rice and topped with pineapple salsa. The mac and cheese was a little spicy— both were delicious.

We also ordered a few beers (from Hoppy Gnome: the Feliz Gnomeidad (a “winter warmer”) and their IPA. Also, a Shorts sour ale. I also ordered a cocktail (the Eddie Camino). I liked it, but it was spicy and definitely a sipper. I wasn’t able to finish it before we needed to leave for our movie.

Overall, a great dinner and great evening.

My first time going, but definitely not the last. Delicious, unique food with outstanding beer selection. Nice big windows to look out at the downtown lights and people. The staff was smiling and friendly, and the price was not too much. Great, fun place!

We were given a gift gift card to go. It was a great experience but it was really loud, difficult to hear our server. Great food and drinks though.

Had never been before, but my wife had been trying to get us to go there on a date for quite some time. We were not disappointed. Very good food and even better service. Loved the variety of beers available, and some of the unique food offerings. The ingredients were fresh and tasty, and the atmosphere was very modern. The crowd is what you would expect in a place like this. Youthful and full of energy. The tacos are something I would definitely get again! The queso was good, but the salsa was even better. Had 3 tacos, but should have gotten 2. Very abundant in the portion sizes. Would probably try the scallops or the tuna as an appetizer next time?

We will be back.

The Tacos we ordered were excellent, but the jasmine rice was over cooked, cold & so bland that we couldn’t eat it.
