Bit and Spur Restaurant and Saloon is also famous for its excellent Mexican cuisine.  It gets high reviews and many repeat customers. Bit and Spur began in the 70s as a bar and pool hall.  A restaurant was added in 1981, when Chef, Michael Perry, came in to create tasty dishes. Later, Brad Tarran arrived to ramp it up with mouth-watering dishes like Hawaiian seafood, roasted pineapple risotto, and deep-fried, green tomatoes.  Live music enhances the experience at Bit and Spur.
