BYOB Tex-Mex Bristol, NH. Awesome food

So and myself happened to be in Bristol NH recently and hungry. We spotted "Ivy's spice of life" in the downtown and stopped in and we are so glad we did. First plus for us is that it is BYOB..As you all know the booze bill can really add up and very often is more than food bill. We simply walked around the corner and got some coronas Had we known we would have brought it from home and saved even more. Their was no corkage charge which was nice.

The food was outstanding! Started with the Reverend's Hellfire Chili.. well Amen brother!! Really good and I love it when it lives up to the name.... it really is spicy ..We also had stuffed Jalapenos and these are not the standard pre packaged ( BJ or Sams club ? ) you get elsewhere...these are fresh stuffed and fried. Delish. So had the brisket and reported it was moist and flavorful. After learning that they were also open for breakfast I asked if it was possible to get Huevos Rancheros and was accommodated. Yum..complex sauce, chorizo and eggs cooked as requested. I had an awesome slice of pecan pie and found out all the deserts are made in-house. Looking forward to returning and exploring the menu further.

The atmosphere is pretty much no frills but the food more than makes up for it and they have "all you can surf wifi" for free too.
