OKLAHOMA CITY -- Recently, my companion and I found ourselves at Bacon, a relatively new OKC eatery that specializes in - you guessed it! - bacon!

Founder and owner Sean Cummings (whose popular spots Sean Cummings' Irish Pub and Land & Sea once were in the same location) is a Kansas City guy, and up in those parts they love their pork, specifically the results that are known as bacon. His concept was to feature menu items that include bacon in everything, from the Bacon Chicken & Spinach lasagna ($14) to the delicious Bacon Ice Cream w/ Caramel ($7). 

My companion and I enjoyed bacon-infused cocktails (shockingly good!) along with rapidfire service and engaging staff all-too willing to make recommendations. And who knew so many items could be made that much better with a bit of bacon added to the mix?

I was so bowled over by the bacony goodness of Bacon that a few weeks later I held my Red Dirt Report office party there - and received the same top-level service and scrumptious comfort food that Bacon is becoming known for. And with today being Elvis Presley's birthday, methinks the King would be a regular at Bacon, were he still amongst us.

You can bet, I'll be back!
