Latest Bristled Boar Saloon and Grill news and reviews

JM ate the BBQ bacon cheeseburger.
Nichole ate the razorback-spiced chicken sandwich with a Pepsi. We split an order of fries.
The bill was $12, or $6/person, plus tip.
JM gave Bristled Boar a B+; Nichole gave Bristled Boar an A- (see our grading rubric).

Again with the Pepsi!

We unwittingly chose a poker tournament night (there's another one coming up in November), so the joint was crowded and smoky even by bar standards. The regulars seemed mighty nice, though, as was the service, and we didn't have trouble finding a small table next to what looked like some DIY floor repair supplies stashed under a tablecloth. It was a pretty homey place, dudes at the next table pontificating about how women shoulda never gotten the vote notwithstanding.

JM's burger was tasty though small. He has a tough time enjoying a place where you have to stare down an ashtray on your table while you eat. But Nichole highly recommends the chicken sandwich, which can be seasoned three ways (Cajun, lemon pepper, or razorback) or not at all. The fries broke the Thursday night rule and were awesome.

We went for Culver's drive through on the way home, since the bill left us pocket change for a hot fudge sundae and a raspberry cooler.
