As we continue "Diners We Dig" we take you to a place that brings home the bacon by serving it. Lots of it.
It's the Saloon on Calhoun with Bacon in Brookfield. You could also call it hog heaven.
They have incorporated bacon into pretty much every menu item, from bacon wrapped mozzarella sticks, bacon wrapped pork wings, even bacon wrapped brownies. Yes, bacon wrapped brownies.
They even have a bacon bloody mary to wash it all down.
In case that's not enough pork for you, they host a bacon happy hour, with all you can eat bacon for two hours a day.
They are on to something. Americans sure love bacon. In fact, we consume 1.7 billion pounds of it every year.
In some ways, you could say bacon is the new black, and at this restaurant, they're taking that to the piggy bank.
