Best place for bourbon. And BBQ. And beer: Blue Tractor
207 E Washington
Blue Tractor has assembled a choice menu that combines what we all love: smoky food, majestic bourbons, and great beer. Much of it comes from the cellar, aka Mash, a sub-level extension of Blue Tractor where all the beer is made, the bourbons/ryes/whiskeys (all major high-end labels) sit, and oftentimes, there’s a little live music too. When it’s time to eat, go for the Thai BBQ salmon, Carolina pulled pork, or the a decadent mac and cheese. Failing that, try the Carnivore, a massive half-pound beef burger topped with pulled pork, bacon, cheddar, and fried jalapeño chips. But no matter what you get, wash it down with one of the aforementioned beers or one of BT’s can’t-miss cocktails.
