  • The Brunch menu looks great, however, the prices not so much. $14 for a burger!? No thanks.

  • $16 before tax for a sandwich????? i dont understand how they expect to compete with KBC which has good food at much lower prices and is also going to have a rooftop!!

  • $14 for biscuits and gravy?! They’re making a pretty penny off of that dish…

  • Ya, no way at these prices. I’d rather go to KBC.

  • TWENTY-TWO DOLLARS for a BBQ Platter!? No way. The comparable “Pick 2” at KBC is $14. Acre 121 needs to reconsider those menu prices.

  • Wait. This place used to be closed on Mondays?

  • I’m already missing the Veggie Chili Mac. I used to visit just to get that.

  • it would be great for them to have at least one token vegan item in each food category. Commonwealth had better vegan options than this place!

    I *still* miss Commonwealth.

    The one time I had brunch at Acre 121, I ordered a bloody mary. I was told to get up and go make it myself … Yeah, ummm, no. If I’m not at a buffet restaurant, then I really expect that the food/drink is prepared and brought to me, else I could’ve stayed home with tomato juice and my own little bottle of vodka. So, never mind on the bloody mary. And never mind to Acre 121.

    I still miss Commonwealth.

  • What’s “KBC”?

    $22 for a quarter chicken and pulled pork?
    I’m imagining the new chef and owner sitting outside, peering from one end of Irving to the other and saying “Man, sure are a lot of dumb millenials running around here on mommy and daddy’s dime. Lets think of a price, and then charge them double!” Then they high five and get down to furiously sorting money out of one of those burlap sacks with a dollar sign on the side of it.

      The prices before weren’t much better. I’m seriously surprised this business has managed to stay open for so long given how terrible the food is. I wonder how much of their business is actually repeat customers.

      • The food is so bad that even when I’m really interested in the band they’ve got I usually don’t go.
