A Bite of the Boro: Bull & Barrel Steakhouse
Walking into Bull and Barrel Steakhouse in downtown Statesboro is an experience for the senses. As soon as you step on to the intricate black and white tiles of the entrance, the smell of sizzling steaks and fresh herbs greet you. The bar, immediately to your left behind a chic wooden block wall, creates the background music of martini shaking and ice clinking. The upscale atmosphere is excellent and, while only operating since May of 2020, has already helped to make Bull and Barrel Steakhouse one of the most popular fine dining restaurants in Statesboro.
While perusing their menu, why not begin your experience with one of their cocktails? Whether you’re craving something classic (Paloma), fruity (Key Lime Martini), or a pick me up like the Flatliner (which features local Cool Beanz Cold Brew, Bailey’s, and Frangelico), Bull and Barrel’s talented bartenders are sure to have a solution.
You can always tell who has tried the Pork Belly appetizer at Bull and Barrel…they mention it anytime Statesboro food comes up! The crispy, smoky edges are a perfect contrast to the tender, juicy inside. The cold, flavorful coleslaw is an unexpected delight too.
Another popular appetizer is the Deviled Egg Flight. Three varieties of deviled egg are served with this flight, featuring okra, bacon, and pickle. Everyone in the South has an opinion on what constitutes the perfect deviled egg- but if your definition includes a creamy, smooth filling, you need to try these! Bull and Barrel provides a modern take on a southern staple with flavors (and a final sprinkle of paprika) that makes this dish feel like home.
Entrees at Bull and Barrel Steakhouse change with the seasons to ensure you’re getting the best ingredients. What you can always count on seeing on the menu is a selection of hand cut steaks and prime rib that will delight the meat lovers in your life!
