Silver Dollar, The


Just as Nashville was going the way of pop music and the vocal chorus, Okies like Wynn Stewart, Buck Owens and Merle Haggard were playing music as hardscrabble as their people tough rhythmic music, characterized by the slap of a Fender Telecaster, wailing pedal steel and searing vocal harmonies. It was music meant to be heard over the incessant din of a honky tonk, of which Bakersfield had plenty; places like The Barrel House, Doc’s Club, Ethyl’s Corral, High Pockets and The Blackboard.

The Silver Dollar tries in its own way to honor this wonderful music, these great juke joints and the spirited people who inhabited them.

Our menu is a modern take on traditional working-class dishes that might have been found in Bakersfield during the era. The Southern roots are obvious in dishes such as Chicken Fried Steak, Hickory-Smoked Beef Brisket, Breaded Catfish, and Fried Chicken Livers. The Southern California influence is reflected in dishes like Chicken & Waffles, Molletes, and the Chorizo Corndog.The Brunch menu continues the American-South-in-Southern-California melody with Chilaquiles Verdes, Cornbread Pancakes, Fried Oyster Sandwich, and Smoked Trout Salad. The Silver Dollar is now serving Louisville's best brunch every Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 3 pm. Featuring over 100 Kentucky Bourbons and ryes.
