Steny’s Tavern

Last weekend, we also visited Steny’s Tavern on 2nd & National.

Steny’s makes some big claims about their Bloody Marys, so naturally, we had to verify or deny them:

According to Steny’s website, Steny’s Bloody Mary was named #1 Bloody at an event last August… we’ll be the judge of that!

Steny’s menu even has an entire page dedicated to the history of their Bloodies:

And, from 11am-6pm on Saturdays and Sundays, they offer the Bloodies for just $4 each.

(Unfortunately, we didn’t have a chance to inquire about the Bloody Mary Club—-maybe they will fill us in on that!)

Anyway, here’s what you’ve been waiting for: Steny’s Bloody Mary.

Mix: Made from scratch

Chaser: Yes

Fixin’s: Pickle, olive

Price: $4

The taste of the Bloody Mary was a little on the spicier side, but other than that, I’m sorry to say, this was a pretty standard Bloody Mary. The price is great when you hit the special on the weekends, but I”m not sure this warrants a trip down there on a regular basis.

I’ve been meaning to get to Oscar’s on Pierce since last Opening Day when I came across an image on Twitter of a special Bloody Mary that included a brat as a fixin’!

Well, last weekend I finally got there and, while the brat was a one-day only special, their “everyday” bloodies are fantastic!

Mix: Made from scratch

Chaser: Yes

Fixin’s: Pickle, celery, olive, cheese, lemon and bacon

Price: $7.50

My dining companion and I both agreed that Oscar’s “soon to be famous” Bloody Marys were delicious; extremely flavorful with kind of a unique “smoky” aftertaste. We will definitely be back to Oscar’s soon and next time, we’ll come hungry because the food looked amazing and the scent of burgers was heavy in the air.
