Loaner tables still riddle the fully remodeled dining room of the old Aztec Sol , and the POS system has yet to be installed, but the Highland Tap and Burger, 2219 West 32nd Avenue, is at least partially open for business.
"We had our soft, soft opening on Friday night," says Eli O'Dell, the restaurant's chef. "We're serving a limited menu on the bar side for the foreseeable future, at least until we can get everything up and running."
That limited menu, according to owner Kevin Eddy, includes five appetizers, two salads and five signature burgers. Those dishes are in addition to a stocked bar, which offers a happy hour that runs daily from 3 to 6 p.m.

"We're getting things ready in small pieces and training our staff," says Eddy. "We'll probably have everything at full service within two weeks."
Highland Tap and Burger is already seeing steady business. Eddy notes that the space was filled with weekend diners from mid-morning through 9 or 10 p.m., at which point the bar crowd took over.
Sounds like our kind of joint.
