In homage to Harley-Davidson's legendary hogs, Steve "Doc" Hopkins built a 24.5-foot-long, 10-seat motorcycle powered by seven engines that he dubbed the "Timeline." Then, in homage to the bike, Hopkins opened the Timeline Saloon & BBQ. There, the cooks prepare what you might expect at a restaurant themed after a 10-seat motorcycle: barbecue. Though there's pulled pork, beef brisket, and chicken on the menu, the ribs are the standout dish. First, they're marinated in apple juice, teriyaki sauce, and maple syrup for 48 hours. Next, they're slow-roasted in the onsite smokehouse and slathered in one of five sauces. If you're worried that there won't be enough food, their cooks also prepare an epic, 7-pound burger.
Before or after your meal, explore the restaurant's sprawling premises, which include a Harley-Davidson dealership, classic car and motorcycle museum, antique shop, and zoo with alligators, a camel, tortoises, and other animals that would look cute in motorcycle vests.
