Bacon By The Bucket At Local Oak

baconby Steven Doyle

The obsession with bacon only gains more kinetic energy, never stopping to wait for the world to catch up. And that is probably OK by us. Bacon, with all of its sweet, smokey, crispy goodness lends a bit of savory crunch to just about any meal from what could otherwise be an extremely mundane sandwich or burger, to a sprite salad topping that makes an omnivore smile with anticipation. But bacon does just fine on its own. Just ask the good people over at Local Oak in Oak Cliff. They sell bacon by the bucket. 

Not only does Local Oak have a fine bowl of red, a delicious burger, and even green chile enchiladas, they serve up thick slices of bacon that has been candied and spice up a bit by the bucket.

When ordering the Bucket of Love (a mere $6) you may anticipate the occasion with one of the many local craft brews on tap. I understand the bacon pairs particularly well with an IPA, so Deep Ellum or perhaps the powerful Mosaic from  Community might be in order. And plenty of bacon.
