  • A Biker's Paradise at Thirty-Six Saloon

    Posted on Thursday, July 13, 2017 — By Admin

    Located right downtown Rockville, Indiana, you can't miss the Thirty-Six Saloon as you come in to town. Chances are it will be the place with all the motorcycles around, as it hosts several poker runs and other motorcycle events throughout the year. Located in a historic building with a history that spans over 100 years although remodeled several times over the years, it is made to look like a rustic saloon from the wild west. The impressive outside family friendly patio, called the Hog Pit is very spacious and is decorated with grass skirted umbrellas to give it a beachy feel. Outside you can also watch the cooks in the BBQ kitchen smoke the meat you might soon decide to eat. Live music is available on most weekends. You will even find a small fish pond and a fire place outside. A great place to kick back, relax and enjoy the weekend with great friends and fun food!

    A couple things that stuck out on the menu that we just had to try were the "Hog Slop Chips" and the "Hog Turds". Doesn't sound very appetizing, does it? But if you can get past the name, they are delicious! Hog Slop Chips at 36 Saloon, Rockville, INThe "Hog Slop Chips" are homemade ruffle thick sliced chips topped with pulled pork or brisket, smokehouse baked beans and queso cheese. All my favorites from family BBQ dinners all in one dish! Hog Turds from Thirty-Six Saloon, Rockville, IN The "Hog Turds" are jalapeños stuffed with brisket and pepper jack cheese then wrapped in a soft pretzel and deep fried. Something we have never encountered before. It is a little spicy and I'm a wimp when it comes to spice so it wasn't my cup of tea but the pretzel wrapping and the brisket were amazing! I could tolerate the spice for a couple bites too. I would highly recommend, especially if you love spicy items.

    We can't wait to go back to try more of their burgers and brats too! The smoked items were so wonderful though and would pair perfectly with your favorite cold beer! We hear the "Biker Babe Burger" is to die for though! You might just see us there sometime soon! Check out their website for a listing of the bands they will be hosting soon. www.thirtysixsaloon.com.

    If you visit, take a picture and share it with us on social media! We'd love to see your favorites!
