Bacon – is there a more perfect food?
You can have it with eggs, on top of a burger, on salads or even as Man Candy. What guy doesn’t like bacon?
So this week I headed out to the Bacon Bar at 3520 N. Rancho Drive. There bacon is king as it highlights so many different items on the menu.
I started off with an appetizer call Man Candy, which was bacon coated with caramelized brown sugar. If that wasn’t already sweet enough you could dip the bacon in the maple dipping sauce. This was an absolutely fantastic appetizer that you must try if a bacon fan.
My buddy Bryan ordered the Bacon Wrapped Jalapeños as his appetizer. This was another great appetizer if you like a little heat. We had a third appetizer on this visit and tried the Bacon Garlic Knots. The garlic knots were OK but my least favorite of the three appetizers.
Bryan ordered the Bacon Sloppy Joes with fries. I ordered the Bacon Barbecue Burger. My burger was good and cooked just the way I ordered it. Both sandwiches were huge, as they don’t skimp on the portions. I saw an order of ribs go by my table and they looked very good.
On Thursday nights they have an all-you-can-eat rib special for $16.99. Something tells me my next visit will be on a Thursday.
Some other interesting items on the menu were the 1 lb. Bacon BLT. They cook a full pound of bacon then stack it on top of lettuce and tomato with your choice of bread. They even had bacon wrapped chicken wings.
One of their signature burgers is their PB&J. They top off a burger with peanut butter and strawberry jam. Adding smoked apple wood bacon gives you a sweet and savory burger combination.
If you are craving something sweet I suggest checking out their dessert menu. I went with a Panookie, which comes out in a tin pan that holds a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie topped with ice cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. This desert is big enough to share but you really won’t want to.
There are plenty of TVs for watching sports, however they did not have the baseball sports package so if you’re looking for a particular game you’re only going to be able to watch what’s on the regular channels. They do, however, carry NFL Sunday ticket so this would be a great spot for football watching.
The waitresses are very attentive and helpful with the menu. The portions are huge so you won’t leave hungry, that’s for sure. The food was good while being different and fun at the same. I give the Bacon Bar a rating of 3.50 Forks.
