JM ate the bacon cheeseburger with a lemonade.
Nichole ate the Reuben.
We split an appetizer sampler. The bill was $21, or $10ish/person, plus tip.
JM gave Harley Blue a C+; Nichole gave Harley Blue a C (see our grading rubric).

Bacon cheeseburgerOn the road again, this time in Blue Mounds, there is a little bar called Harley Blue. It is a "biker" bar, though in the second decade of the 21st century, that terminology implies little. It is biker friendly and veteran friendly, which is certainly understandable.

This lunchtide, though, the waitress/cook/bartender indicated that they had been slammed, which seemed to come from the only tables in the place being occupied by six folks.

Onto the food. The burger was handmade and served on a toasted, buttered bun.  For $5, it was neither especially large nor well-topped, coming with just cheese and bacon. Without fries, the sandwich felt a little lonely. 

ReubenSampler #3: o-rings, curds & mozz sticks

The Reuben was as good as you'd expect to find in a Sconnie bar such as this. Decent corned beef with the right moisture ratio served atop a marble rye.

The app sampler was OK and the mozzarella sticks reminded us how the rest of the country has to live without cheese curds. We're lucky in Wisconsin.

Harley Blue is an average Wisconsin tavern, but just doesn't suggest itself very highly among places to go in Blue Mounds.  But your bike mileage may vary.

PS - May 10, 2014 was the 10th anniversary of Madison A to Z and we spent it at spot #900.
