Featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives...

Well, as I was getting my butt kicked at lunch the other day trying to dig my way out of a board full of tickets the thought occurred to me that...was it really a coincidence in the Wizard of Oz that after they went through that poppy field they saw a town full of little people, a horse of a different color and flying monkeys?...SPOILER ALERT...the Wicked Witch get's it in the end, Dorothy misses Kansas and Toto misses the rain down in Africa...

"This Week's Special Fare"

We start things off this week with Shaker Cranberry Bean Chowder, featuring heirloom Cranberry Beans soaked overnight, then slow-simmered in homemade Chicken Stock and Apple Cider with just a touch of Molasses and garnished with thin slices of Green Onion.

And as always, we have our award-winning Tucker's Nantucket Calm Chowder...what more can I say.

Daily Specials
The Daily Special this week is a customer favorite, and you know who you are, a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich. Fresh, Chicken Breasts lightly seasoned and breaded, fried to a golden brown and topped with Jeff's Buffalo Sauce with a nice kick of heat, on a toasted roll with shredded Lettuce and finished with our own made from scratch, and several other ingredients, Blue Cheese Dressing.

And as always, we're featuring our "Bark Lard" BLT as did Food Network's "Triple D"! Thick slices of our own in-house cured Bacon, fresh Lettuce and Jeff's homemade Tomato Jam. All sandwiches are served with your choice of MB's Cole Slaw or Chips and Overnight Pickles.

And lastly and certainly not least, Mary Beth's "Life's a Beach", features Goat Cheese, Red Onion, Tomato Jam, Avocado, Sprouts and Cucumber, served on buttered and toasted Multi-Grain Bread. Or if you prefer, for a little extra, add a couple slices of "Bark Lard".

Entree Salads
BD Wedge Salad, the first of our featured Entree Salads starts with split Romaine Lettuce garnished with fresh, ripe Avocado, Grapefruit segments, sweet and spicy Pecans and crisp Bacon, finished with crumbled Blue Cheese for a really nice combination of flavors and textures. MB's homemade French Dressing adds the perfect compliment to the salad.

And we also continue with our Barking Dog's "Tee Pee" Salad. That iconic Tee Pee Dressing tossed with Iceberg Lettuce and topped with julienned Beets and homemade Croutons served in wooden bowls...a true classic!

Mary Beth's Salad, our featured House Salad starts with organic Field Greens topped with fresh Oranges, Apples, dried Cranberries, Red Onion, spicy sweet Pecans and a dusting of Blue Cheese. A homemade Raspberry Vinaigrette and toasted Baguette are served on the side.
