The culinary crew at Thumpers Old Towne Bar & Grill craft pub fare with verve, skillfully preparing a menu full of steaks, seafood, and appetizers that emphasize Southwestern and Cajun flavors. Starter portions of Thumpers grande nachos ($6.95) test chips’ structural integrity by piling their surfaces with black beans, cheeses, and jalapeños, and the jumbo chicken wings ($8.99) shepherd taste buds to hot-sauce-seasoned pastures flanked by blue-cheese dressing and celery. Diners can chow down on one of six cooked-to-order burgers ($5.95–$9.95) or journey into the bayou by catching the Louisiana fried catfish ($14.95), two breaded fillets rendered golden brown and drizzled with a spicy tartar sauce. On some nights, guests may be serenaded by a live musical performance from a local band, whose sultry notes ping off the restaurant walls like meatballs with aspirations of becoming a Pong ball.
