        I had lunch at Bacon, today. I had the pulled pork sandwich (7.95). I don't have a lot to say about it. It was good enough. The pork had a little smokiness, and the sauce had a spicy mustard taste (or maybe horseradish?). Another distinct flavor was cooked onion. It was served on a very toasted baguette with tropical cole slaw and fries.

        I thought the menu had something for everyone who would go to a breakfast/lunch place, but it easily fit on one side of one sheet of paper, breakfast and lunch.

        I'll be back to try breakfast.

          Does anybody else think that BACON is a stupid name for a restaurant? I don't think it inspires an urge to go eat there, etc.

                I'm sorry, I couldn't resist. I even sampled that commercial to use as a cellphone ringtone. Scared the hell out of my girlfriend's dog...
