Best bacon at Sacramento's Jointed Cue Billiards

Jointed Cue BaconBacon has joined the ranks of fine food -- practically healthy! Bacon fests, bacon food trucks, and restaurant names are dedicated to this delicious cured pig. Sorry, don't mean to be indelicate BUT it's absolutely true that, "Everything is better with bacon!"

Preparing a crisp side-of-bacon is a fine art. Trust me! Been searching for the perfect bacon too long. Most recently at one of my favorite Berkeley breakfast spots, the bacon was precooked, limp and tasteless. Most restaurants pre-cook their bacon! Why? They will tell you it saves time.

Ask the cooks at Jointed Cue Billiards and they'll tell you, "Not so!"

Jointed Cue Billiards has a small diner-style counter where they cook-up breakfast (and lunch) all day and the best, picture-perfect, extra crisp, thick-cut bacon topping either eggs or burgers. All the bacon is cooked to order. On the grill. Sizzling away, weighed down by a bacon press. What's that? Just a big cast iron flat piece of metal used to weigh down bacon on the grill. What this delivers is the best, crispest bacon EVER! Let me say that one more time #bestbacon EVER!. Where? Jointed Cue Billiards.

Precooked bacon cannot be made crisp. You can simply cook it longer and then it's overcooked. All the flavor cooked out. Not so at Jointed Cue Billiards. The truth is I can't even say that I have a second favorite bacon joint. The "Cue" is it!

The secret to the best bacon: Good bacon. Thick cut. Cooked to order. On the grill. Jointed Cue Billiards has all the requisites. BTW - bacon, eggs and hash browns with a little Frank's RedHot Sauce, oh yeah, that's what I'm talking about. Hook me up! One more thing, no skimping here -- not two, not three, but four pieces of deliciously crisp bacon.

Jointed Cue Billiards is open daily serving up good food at good prices. Enjoy entertainment as some of Sacramento's best pool players rack their balls and shoot!
