Mile High Vegan Eats: The Bucksnort Saloon

Mile High Vegan Eats: Bucksnort Saloon

This place was so much fun! A biker bar located in Sphinx Park (near Pine), The Bucksnort Saloon is the perfect destination for a cold beer and some vegan snacks after hiking the brand new Staunton State Park! At least, that was how I experienced it, ha ha.

It’s built in a series of old-timey log cabins alongside a narrow dirt road and has a reputation as not only a biker bar, but a fun stop for all sorts of people out for their “Sunday drives”. Seriously, look how many people brought their bikes out – and this was right at noon when they first opened. There was another parking lot full of cars (and more bikes) too.

The inside of the bar is probably what you’d expect from the outside… dark and rustic… but very cool. People write their names on dollar bills and pin them to the walls and ceiling.

While their menu does appear to be crafted with your average meat-eating biker dude in mind, rest assured that your vegan appetite can also be satisfied. They have a vegetable burrito (no cheese or sour cream, obvs) that when combined with refried beans (vegetarian!) was very filling. The ‘Climbers Special’ is also vegan if you sub guacamole for the cream cheese. And then of course there’s the guac, salsa and chips… although the guac isn’t made in-house, and let’s just say you wouldn’t drive all the way out there for it…

But the beer is cold! And if you’re lucky you’ll get a seat on the back patio overlooking the water.

And if you’re planning to down more than a couple brewskis while you’re here, I recommend waiting as long as you can to <ahem> break the seal… you’re not going to want to make too many trips to the ladies room, if you know what I mean. Just sayin’.

    It’s very cool that even in a little biker bar you can find vegan food. It’s funny, I was talking about going to Staunton with some people at work and one of the ladies said she was going this weekend and would be eating at ‘some cool little biker bar’. I immediately blurted out “It’s Bucksnort! My friend was just there and was able to eat vegan food!” I don’t know if that impressed anyone but it just goes to show that the place is fairly well known and will become even more busy thanks the the new park. Maybe that will result in better food and facilities.

    Barb, you’re so cute. Don’t know what you’re doing hanging out in biker bars lately, though?! Jk. The rustic cabins are adorable, the view is awesome, and I love that we have learned to ask to altar foods…to veganize the world. That was the first big step for me to feel comfortable in my own vegan shoes: learning to ask for substitutes and alterations at restaurants..life is so much easier when you grow out of the too shy to ask phase! Yay for vegan food and all those hot moto-men. Yum and yum! JK!

    Talk about a happy surprise! I would never have thought you could find vegan food in a place like this, so color me impressed. There’s a lot to be said for just being able to get some solid snacks and cold beer, too. 😉
