My friend and I were looking to mix it up a little for dinner without leaving Federal Hill. I had read about Bluegrass Tavern and that they serve delicious southern comfort food. I also had a dining card for Bluegrass which was an added incentive for me to head over there.
After looking over the menu, my friend and I knew we had to start with an order of the Baked Mac N Cheese. This was incredibly creamy and cheesy with some nice crunchy bits from the cast iron skillet, we loved it.
My friend decided to try something I would have never expected her to order, Smoked Fried Chicken. This dish came with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, crispy brussel sprouts, and country gravy. The chicken was off the bone, smoked and then fried and it was truly delicious. Smoking the chicken added another level of flavor and made it better than your typical fried chicken but inside the meat was still incredibly moist.
I’ve been on a little burger kick lately and I’ve heard that Bluegrass has a pretty awesome burger. So I ordered the Cox Farms Dry Aged Burger. It was topped with applewood smoked cheddar, grilled red onion, spicy mayo, house cured bacon, lettuce, tomato, and slaw. This burger was delicious and juicy. Definitely one of the better ones I’ve had.
If you’re looking for a great meal, head over to Bluegrass Tavern.
