So I've been to A-Frame a couple times now, and have tried just about everything on the menu, including each of the specialty drinks. The highlights are (and I don't have the exact names of the items, but you'll know them when you see them on the menu):

Kettle Korn Popcorn appetizer that's soaked in butter and chilis. It's the kind of thing you want to order extra of, to keep at home

The Mixed Nuts with Beef Jerky is by far the best beef jerky I've ever had, period. The nuts are salty, spicy and sweet. And it's a real mixed nut bowl.

The Warm Corn Bread with Chicken Salad - and it has a sausage ragout. We consider this the sleeper, it seems unassuming at first, and it grows in flavor with each bite, thanks to the pickled onions and the green salsa

Vegetable Tempura - to die for. The broccoli rabe is especially yummy

Beer Can Chicken is soft and tender, and so delectable. Same green salsa gives it a real kick.

Probably the best lamb chops in town (the priciest on the menu, at $18)

I could keep listing everything on the menu, there wasn't one bad dish - not one. Each one is unique, each full of flavor and flavor combinations. And because each dish is meant to be shared, and the prices are so reasonable, it's easy to try at least 5 or 6 dishes (prices range from $5 to $18, but most everything is about $8).

And the must-have is the Churros with the malted ice cream. Oh man, is this good. I liked the Fried Apple Pie with Cheddar Ice Cream a lot, but couldn't stop with that malted ice cream.

They don't take reservations, and all tables are community, the wait is worth it, for the drinks.
