Located in the city where Purdue University reigns king is a bar where the house rules are unique as well as the bar itself.  With a wild and out there menu I give you Downtown Kirby’s Bar.

You walk in and see a normal everyday sports bar with tvs on showing the various sporting events on them and chairs and tables going down this long and narrow dining room.  We get sat and I order a beer and look over the menu which is pretty intense to say the least.

After looking over the house rules, such as no cutting your sandwich in half and no putting ketchup on hot dogs, I find and instantly am drawn to The Mac N Nap Burger.  The Mac N Nap burger comes with 4 cheese mac, a burger, thick sliced bacon and pickle all on a pretzel bun.  It also comes with homemade potato chips.

First off I was curious why it was called the Mac N Nap Burger until I got half way through it.  This 1/2 pound burger with an entire portion of homemade macaroni and cheese was so difficult to bite into i had to squash it just to get a taste.  The crisp pickle and thick spiced bacon added to the flavors to make this one of the best burgers I have ever had.  I couldn’t believe the dance my tastebuds were doing on each bite.  The chips were also great and reminded me of a carnival  or fair potato chip.

So if you are super hungry or sleep deprived be sure to go to DT Kirby’s Bar and grab yourself some awesome food.  I warn you though it may cause you to fall into a comatose state after you eat here.  Next time I go in there I am going to try the Grilled Cheese/Cheese Burger which is a cheese burger that uses two grilled cheeses as the buns.  Also before you leave be sure to go use the bathroom.  It appears as an actual outhouse but once you open the door and walk through you entire a normal bathroom so I just thought that was funny.
