A few months back I wrote the post “Goodbye Counter, Hello Alibi“, which was about The Counter owners reopening their location in Dos Lagos as The Alibi Bar & Grill. Since that post, we have visited The Alibi a few times.
The fries and onion strings are still good, although the appetizer is now called a “Half n Half” instead of a “50/50”. They also make good salads, such as the Chef (Cobb) Salad.
We LOVED The Counter’s burgers, and were happy to find out that burgers are still on the menu. We’ve tried a few of the different burgers, including the Western burger and the Breakfast burger. We will miss The Counter experience, but The Alibi burgers are still good (and big at 1/2 lb.), just not quite the same.
If you’re not in the mood for a burger, The Alibi has so much more to offer.
My personal favorite is The Club sandwich. Many of the club sandwiches I have tried are light on turkey and bacon, loaded with lettuce, and completely devoid of cheese. The Alibi does it right by combining roast beef, turkey, ham and bacon, with lettuce, tomato AND cheese. Good stuff.
We’ve also tried the Asada Sandwich (thinly-sliced carne asada and swiss cheese), the Bratwurst and the Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, which are 12 square cut sandwiches with different cheeses served with tomato soup for dipping. Another addition is breakfast, which they serve until noon on the weekends.
The interior has been revamped with darker colors, dark wood tables and a dark wood bar. Although I liked the clean look of the metal tables and chairs, the darker colors look good too. They have also added Karaoke nights, and although I haven’t been to one, I did drive past The Alibi on a Thursday night after seeing a late movie and the place seemed to be packed with people having a good time.
After all, they do have 30 beers on tap.The Alibi Bar & Grill The Promenade Shops at Dos Lagos 2785 Cabot Drive Suite 110 Corona, CA
