I recently had a few beers at a local brewpub, and it seemed the beer was better than the beer which made me think of all the great food I've had over the years at bars/brewpubs.

What is your favorite bar food you've had???

Can't go wrong with wings, I just had some pulled pork nachos (smoked for 24 hours) that were truly amazing

Duck frites (french fries, made in duck fat) are my absolute favorite. Dry wings are also good, only beating wet for because they're easier to eat. My wife says loaded fries, and I would say they're number 2 for me. We haven't been to a bar for some time, and now I'd like to go! :mug: Kyle

A pub I go to takes jalapenos, halves and deseeds and deveins them, fills them with cream cheese, wraps the whole thing in bacon, then broils it. Awfully good.

I think those peppers that pappers had are called Armadillo Eggs or Buffalo Turds. Either way, peppers stuffed with some kind of cheese, some bacon and baked or battered and fried are goo-ood.

Potato skins. Nachos. Artichoke and spinach dip. Loaded fries. Chicken fingers with honey mustard. I love bar food.

Got to go deep fried- love a good belgian frites, poutine, or fried dill pickles. Hard to beat nachos too, but so few places do them decently.

I've always wanted to try poutine. Too bad nobody this far south knows what the hell it is. May just have to make it myself.

We do have these though, carne asada fries:



The fries and meat are topped with a glutton’s row of condiments: tangy Mexican cream, sweet and hot habanero salsa, chipotle aioli, lots of cilantro leaves, melted cheese, squeezes of lime, and crushed peppercorns.

Damn delicious!

For me it's charcuterie, cheese, pickles, and/or olives.

It's burgers for me.

After burgers it's fries/tots then a soft pretzel with either beer cheese dip or a great spicy mustard.

There are a few specific treats I love. Like one bar near me does Asian Nachos which are fried wontons with all kinds of goodness.

Basically I like my bar foods salty and fatty.

I cant just pick one

Fried cheese curds. They must be fresh, and squeak when you eat them.

A well cooked burger, made from house ground good quality meat. My current favorite topping is peanut butter, bacon, sharp cheddar(smoked preferable)

Onion rings, breaded(not battered) and fried crisp.

I've ate peanut butter on a great many things, but not a burger.

Have you tried just peanut butter and bacon? :mug:

Scotch eggs are awesome. Hard boil an egg. Coat it in a layer of ground sausage. Bread it. Deep fry it. Enjoy!

Yes, yes I have. Two of my favorite things.


Homemade potato chips with a blue cheese and white wine gravy is also ridiculous. Now that I am thinking

Any fried cheese. But specifically fried white cheddar cheese curds from a local tavern. OMFG, every now and then living in Wisconsin comes through for me!

Taters. Any kind of taters. French fries, tater tots, tater wedges, taterpigs, curly fries, criss-cut fries, cold boiled, etc...
The lowly little potato: grows in the dirt, so plain, so simple, so unassuming, yet so very, very versatile & tasty!

Fried Mushrooms or Potato Skins are my favorite.

Was at a steakhouse in Austin, Tx that served some deep fried peppers called Rattlesnake Eggs, possibly the best bar food I've ever has, no clue how they made it.

Those look really good. You can make poutine ( pronounced pootsin or close to that) at home by using a cast iron frying pan and fry up some spuds, garlic, onion. Top with good gravy and I use extra sharp cheddar. It isn't exact but really good.
