Not being a country music fan, I was still drawn to see Toby Keith’s “I Love This Bar and Grill” in Auburn Hills. I don’t know why, but it just seemed like a place that I wanted to visit. Since I was going to be in Pontiac to visit the Walter P. Chrysler museum and then hike at Highlands State Recreation Area, a visit to the experience known as Great Lakes Crossing was doable.
First off, Toby Keith’s is a huge place, capable of seating hundreds. The guitar-shaped bar (notice the red, white, and blue striped guitar shape above the bar) could seat dozens by itself. Of course, there was country music coming through speakers. The waitresses were dressed in cut-off shorts, which I didn’t object to. But just my luck, I had a waiter. Luckily, he was NOT wearing cut-offs.
Though I enjoyed the nachos, I was drawn to the fried bologna sandwich. Pair that with a Pabst Blue Ribbon and you have the making of one tasty lunch. But that is for my next visit.
