Checking Out PBR Rock Bar & Grill
The PBR Rock Bar & Grill recently expanded, adding what they’re calling the PBR Rock Bar area. For those who are unfamiliar with the joint, P.B.R. does not stand for Pabst Blue Ribbon. It’s short for Professional Bull Riders, and the bar even has a mechanical bull. That always seemed more country than rock to me — but what do I know about bull riding. Now, the new Rock Bar area is being billed as a “bar and nightclub experience,” leading me to once again wonder what’s so rock about the place. So I decided to check it out, and grab some free food and booze in the process.
Let’s get one thing straight, while they may play rock in the main room, there was nothing “rock” about the new area during the short time I was there. It’s a nicely designed space that houses beer pong tables during the day. When they ushered the media in to see the it, that are had been transformed into a small dance floor, a DJ was providing pop/dance music, and the club lights had kicked in. I’m not passing judgment on it. I’m just saying if you’re looking for rock, this may not be the place for you.
Of course, I’m not here to write about nightclubs. I’m here to talk food. And I did get to sample a few items while I was there. Here are some of the snacks PBR has to offer. Personally, I recommend the fried mashed potatoes with horseradish.
