Who lives on pizza and beer? This week I wanna talk about a cool bar near my hometown. For those of you who don't know, I grew up in Aurora, Nebraska :) It's a small town about an hour west of Lincoln!
My boyfriend has been working there for the summer, so I try to visit as often as possible. A few months ago, his parents took us to this tiny bar in Chapman and I cannot shut up about it, lol. So, here's why y'all need to journey out to western Nebraska...
This place is about 25 minutes from Aurora, 15 from Marquette, and 10 from Central City. It's definitely a nice change from driving to Grand Island and eating at some franchise place. Beer 30 sits on 205 9th Street and is only open Wed + Fri-Sun (4 to 8pm Wed/Sun and 4 to 10pm Fri/Sat).
pizza + drinks:
Alright guys, this is the place to DRINK. I'm pretty sure we got four beers for $10 anddd they were in glass bottles, how neat! For appetizers, they have things like mac n cheese bites, onion rings, and jalapeno poppers priced at six bucks.
Okay, now for the pizza. You can get a one topping 16" pizza for $20 and a specialty pizza for $22. We did half meat lovers, half bbq pork with pickles and it was great! A few others I'd like to try is their chicken bacon ranch or spicy buffalo bacon chicken. Plus, their crust is YUM.
what it's like:
I've seen the whole license plate/sign theme done a lot, but damn! They do it good here. It doesn't look tacky and these signs are well organized. Very aesthetically pleasing. I'll definitely be going more often! Also, I loved their high top tables. They used a dark glossed wood and everything felt so clean. If I wasn't pregnant at the time, I'm sure I'd spend hours there!
That's a wrap folks! If you're from the area...what are your small town favorites?
