Great Beer
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.

Made a reservation and still had to wait which isn’t too big of a deal. Hostess was super rude though. The food was meh. Beer and server were good. Overall just an okay experience.

Good location. Restaurant was clean and well-lit. when I arrived we were quickly seated and greeted by the host along with a trainee. both were very attentive and we're very patient as my guest and I did not order for nearly an hour. server was knowledgeable about beers offered and gave suggestions according to my tastes Food arrived to the table quickly but that's where the charm ended. Our dinner looked haphazardly plated with some type if topping that was extremely dry and difficult to chew through. The protein was cold and bland. Not the best dining BUT the waitress was excellent and the beer quite good.

The beer flights offer a ton of choices. The cost was a little steep for the small amount of beer you get but it was fun. The tacos are really good. The only one we didn't like was the Bob Marley but that was because we decided pineapple doesn't belong on anything 😂.

There was a rather loud group beside us when we first sat down. But once they left it was much easier to have a conversation. The Sangria is my favorite. And the Conan the barbacoa was amazing. Definitely a good time and will be visiting again.

The tacos in my order were a little disappointing. The brisket and the conan the barbeque were a little soggy. The chery salsa was cold making the "crispy" onions chewy. I keep try this location because the concept sounds great, but I haven't been very impressed with their execution.

The BLT is incredible! We deviated from our usual tacos & salads and were not disappointed. And the churros are even better than the s’mores for dessert! Wonderful service made a regular lunch get-together really great.

Food was a tasting Nirvana. Interesting and unique taco ideas - Amazing combos of flavors. Short rib taco was my favorite, but smoky tender brisket & jerk chicken were also heavenly. Try the alcohol-free cocktails- sparkling ginger, lime, mint one was soooo refreshing and a great chaser to the richly seasoned tacos. If you’re in Fort Wayne it’s a crime to miss this place.

We went for Saturday brunch. Menu selection had many options. Food is scratch-made and DELICIOUS & they have some unique combinations. Our waitress was excellent and runners brought out food as soon as ready. Also their coffee is great and the Ginger-Lime fizz (non-alcoholic) is so refreshing!
