There is a brief list of modestly priced, pizza-friendly wines. Oddly, the menu suggests beer-style pairings for several dishes — "The Hill" would go well with a Belgian strong ale, an American amber or a (dark) dunkel lager, for example — yet the restaurant's beer selection is limited to precisely three, all on tap and all made by Anheuser-Busch. This starts to make a lot of sense when you consider that Epic is located right next door to the International Tap House, which offers 17 bazillion different beers, doesn't serve food and welcomes patrons to bring in their own.

Epic's fast-casual setup allows for prompt service, and the servers on my visits were quite friendly, checking back on my table (and others) to make sure everything was OK and to offer drink refills. The servers and kitchen staff all wear dark-blue shirts with a patch over the heart that bears the Epic logo. It's reminiscent of an old-school gas-station workshirt, and it hints at a brand rather than just a restaurant.
