Roxbury Tavern Chocolate Covered Bacon

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

Roxbury Tavern Chocolate Covered Bacon

If you are headed out to Devil's Lake or north on Hwy 12 and have a need for Lake Louie (or OK plonk), decent sandwiches or the odd dinner depending on the night of the week, give the Roxbuy Tavern a try. Had the best bison burger last week (the Great Dane overcooks them thinking they are beef) with great, what was a potato an hour ago, extra crispy fries and sides.

The only in Wisconsin dessert composed of two scoops of vanilla on shortbread cookies and two slices of chocolate covered bacon was memorable. The bacon actually tastes more like salty toffee with a bit of smoke and, balanced with the full fat ice cream, it's a hiker's night cap. Share it with friends, one will last you a life time.

The owner banned smoking years ago, so do that on the Bluff before you get there. Canoe kitsch, mistmatched chairs and flatwore they stole from Gordon Commons. Why go to a chain in Middleton when you can have great food at decent prices in a one of a kind, soon to be forgotten, real old fashioned bar.

Agreed, sounds great. But nothing about chocolate and bacon is an "only in Wisconsin" thing. Chocolate bacon, candied bacon, bacon ice cream--these are all very trendy in modern American cuisine.

Tried a Mo's Bacon Bar from Vosges Chocolate a while back. It was a fun novelty, but I haven't been hankering for another.
