CHECKERED FLAG TAVERN 5725 W. Morris St.
Well we are finally back. Marion County is a few weeks behind the rest of the state so at the time we went here only out door dining was “allowed”. We have been here before and knew it was a great joint to visit. Sadly a few joints are not coming back and a few new ones will never open.
We thought this joint had the best breaded mushrooms in town so we ordered some. Unfortunately they were out so we opted for cheese curds. As you can imagine they were delicious. Just what you would expect for fried cheese.
These were on special for $8.45. They called them loaded. They weren’t really loaded but they had a bunch of diced pepadew peppers scattered all over. They were an excellent start, especially paired with a Lift Off IPA.
Pat wanted some pulled pork and this place does it right. He got a huge sandwich with a mountain of fries for 9 bucks and for an extra $1.25 he got coleslaw.
I had my eyes on their Big Pig sandwich. That is a pile of pulled pork on a slice of grilled ham and then topped with a pile of crisp bacon all on a brioche bun. Served with fries and a side of BBQ sauce. This pig feast was less than $11.
Interestingly enough this was the same sandwich I got here about 3 years ago. It does stand the test of time so that makes it a Classic. A classic of pork deliciousness.
Well we are now cleared to live our lives as close as we can to as it was before so I think we ought to take advantage of it and get out to lunch with a friend.
