“Eat-Drink-Rock-Repeat” that is the motto for The Fifty Pub and Grill on Wallace Road in West Salem. There is no place like this in Salem. It is a rockabilly biker bar that has a very different vibe. I took a liking to their interior the moment I stepped in, everything was black and red and chrome.
The crowd has been varied each time that I go, sometimes it is filled with beautiful young and tattooed people, other times old bikers, and sometimes just sports fans sitting at the bar with a beer in hand. They have an outdoor patio that is quite large with a fire pit and picnic tables. There are pool tables, horseshoes, and they have a Traeger outside.
There is a decent selection of food and the menu lists all sorts of great specials and they have specials for those that bring in their motorcycles or hot rods in.
Mondays: Free Hot Dogs for Monday Night Football
Tuesdays: $2 Crispy Chicken Sandwich (happy hour until 9PM)
Wednesday: $2 ¼ lb Cheeseburger
Thursday: $1 Carnitas Tacos
Fridays: $6 BBQ Dinner (I bet it’s made on the Traeger) and live music
Sundays: $4 breakfast including a beer or well drink.
Another thing I enjoyed about this place was the sign by the jukebox that says “Play rap at your own risk.” During December they will also be offering free Blues dancing lessons. I know that they also have burlesque shows and during the summer months, they host Cruise-ins. It’s nice to find places in town with a great atmosphere and specials that are tasty, yet don’t break the bank. Bring your motorcycle or antique car down and grab a bite!
