What's Your Favorite Dive-Bar Snack?

What's Your Favorite Dive-Bar Snack?

Recently I read an interesting article in 7x7 magazine about the pleasures of dive bars. It got me thinking about dive-bar food. You don't have to admit that you frequent dive bars, but 'fess up: What is your favorite dive bar snack?

Pork rinds are always a bar staple here in the Philippines. They're called chicharon here, and there are different kinds. I love it, but of course I only eat it once in a while.

Wasabi Peanuts, can't stop once I get started on them.

The dive bar by my house serves very good wings. My runner-up choice would be peanuts in the shell.

None of the bars I've ever been to ever serve snacks. Some sell typical bar food though.

i like the nut mix - not necessarily peanuts only but the mixed cashews and the sort. i don't know how i really feel about the bowl on the bar though - you just don't know where everyone's hands have been prior to my reaching in

I've never seen pork rinds at a bar and would eat them if did. I don't like nuts much so prefer the snack mix. A dive bar I used to live near had a big jar of pickles on the counter, those were awesome. Beer and pickle. yumm :drool:

Oh, I frequent the hell out of some dive bars near me. None of them serve any of the above crap tho. They just serve regular bar food, of which I guess I would say quesadillas are my favorite.

There is a bar in Wisconsin that serves deep-fried cheeseburgers. I kid you not. I did not have one, though my friend did, and declared it delicious.

Snacks are for babies. Beer, served with beer, with a side of beer, thank you.

Nothing makes me happy like dive bars where they provide you with peanuts and you can just toss the shells on the floor. Delicious.

Nothing like diving into the snack mix at Traxx.

We have a few that we will go to occasionally but I really stay away from any foods that are just sitting out in bowls with all those other greasy dirty fingers in them. If it's a good dive bar they don't have a kitchen ;-)

I really like seasoned waffle fries if they have them.
