The Southern-inspired menu makes for a hearty brunch, including the traditional chicken and waffles, biscuits and gravy, and several eggs Benedict variations dressed in Southern finery. The build-your-own skillet is an irresistible deal that lets you choose three traditional omelet fixings (and non-traditional, like brisket) to mix in with your eggs, along with a biscuit and home fries. This huge scrambled breakfast is somehow only $10, and will keep you full through dinner.
The brunch slate also offers wings, truffle fries and nachos, if you prefer the lunch side of brunch. The sandwiches are tempting too, especially a number called "There’s a Hippie in My House," which layers mozzarella, roasted red peppers, hummus, pesto, arugula, tomato and avocado on a sub roll for a light but satisfying meatless brunch. “We like to have fun, and it shows through in our menu," explains general manager Kyle Renfro.
“Music is such a big part of our success; we like to perform on the table and on the stage,” he adds. While brunch is a quieter affair than live music nights at the Black Buzzard downstairs (which won our Best New Venue award this year), the food definitely rocks.
Oskar Blues also runs Chuburger and Hotbox Roasters Cafe on Larimer Street and has launched a number of bars, eateries and other businesses around the Front Range, including even a bicycle company called REEB Cycles (launced after founder Dale Katechis had his bike stolen several times). The bicycle theme carries through this newest Oskar Blues location too; old wheels decorated with tap handles adorn the walls of the bar.
If you'e craving grits, fried green tomatoes, crawfish and other Southern specialties, Oskar Blues has just what you need for brunch. The bar and grill is located at 630 Market Street, and brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 720-502-3535 or visit the restaurant's website for more information.
