It’s another Thirsty Thursday as we get ready to dive right into the thick of the holiday’s and also time for another edition of “Chuck’s Choice.”
Last week we ventured up to Green Bay to one of my favorite establishments in Northeast Wisconsin so today I thought we’d venture to one of my favorite establishments in Appleton, MT Pockets.
Located on Newberry St. not just west of the corner of Kensington is where you’ll find this fine establishment. Around for about 20 years and burned down once, this place has had a nice revitalization over the past 2 years. They’ve added a patio area where they host acoustic sets for music, event such as corn roasts and have a set of bags for your competitive entertainment. Inside they have a pool table & 2 dart boards that are the playing ground for some leagues. If you are looking for one hell of a game day special, this would be a place I recommend. For this football season they had 4 different tiers of a AYCD special ranging from domestic draft beer to you call it mixers during Packer and Badger football games. Plenty of TV’s are located in this cozy bar (I will have to say that it is bigger on this inside than it looks). Another place where the clientele accepts any and all friendly patrons with a kick ass bar staff.
Drinks and fun are not the only thing you can find here. They too have a small, but developing menu. They pride themselves making their own food which includes slicing their own potato tornado fries, making their soups in house (that are ever changing) and their burger patties are done in house. They feature “Tex-Mex” Monday which has its own menu and includes pulled pork nachos, tacos, quesadillas, taco salads and their version of a crunchwrap. The Wednesday food special is the one I find to be the best and it’s the Italian Hot Beef sandwich. The hot beef is another item they make in house and will not disappoint.
I would just like to stress the fact that they pride themselves on their menu. This is not your typical “bar food.” It’s good for a casual meal by yourself, with friends or on a date. They will be featuring live music on their patio throughout the summer and always have new things in the hopper.
If you check this place out, let me know what you think! And if you run into me there, say hi! I’m always open to suggestions and you can hit me up on Instagram, Snap Chat & Twitter @whatthechuck99.
Be safe and have fun!
