Red Rock’s spatula maestros dish up burgers, barbecue, and wings with a Southern flair. The Texas sampler menu corrals finger foods into a flavor symphony, enlisting a quartet of barbecue sliders to entertain mouths with pulled pork or brisket. Like hang gliders above local volcanoes, the cooks heat up their wings in various fiery temperatures from the gentle sting of the Red Rock BBQ to the confessor wing’s sweet combination of pineapple and habanero. Side dishes, accompanied by freshly poured Shiner Bocks, round out the culinary journey south with chipotle mac ‘n’ cheese, beer-battered seasoned fries, or collard greens.
Alternatively, round up a group of 15–150 people to celebrate a special event within Red Rock’s expansive party room. Guests can soak up the rowdy roadhouse atmosphere—replete with wall-hung license plates, corrugated tin, and rustic wood—for four hours. Slurp open-bar specialty drinks at half price for an hour before attempting to tame one of Milwaukee’s only mechanical bulls with the help of liquid courage and host of android rodeo clowns. While not included in this Groupon, Red Rock Saloon also offers a full catering menu.
Red Rock Saloon
In 2012, Man v. Food called in Jeremy Wheeler, one of their most trusted competitors, to take on Red Rock Saloon's Unforgiven challenge. As he sidled up to the table, a gravity-defying meal towered before him: atop a pound of French fries sat a fried chicken breast buried between two half-pound bacon cheeseburgers. Encircling the meaty monolith were six ghost-chili chicken wings—and he only had 23 minutes to eat it all. Though it took him until the very last second, Jeremy defeated the meal, becoming only the second person in Red Rock's history to do so.
It’s fitting that Red Rock would dream up a challenge most patrons can’t win—the restaurant is named after a real-life rodeo bull that famously bucked more than 300 riders. When patrons aren’t lining up to ride the mechanical version of Red Rock or listening to live rock and country music, they’re crowding around tables to order from a menu that boasts 2012 Chili Bowl champion Texas red chili. Like Oprah’s address book, the rest of the menu reads like a scrapbook of American pop culture: seasoned chicken crowns the James Dean salad, molasses barbecue sauce sweetens KC Jones wings, and pineapple and jalapeños pile atop a Will Kane pulled-pork sandwich.
