The Silver Dollar is a reimaging of a 1950s Bakersfield, California honky tonk. It’s an homage to gritty honky tonk music and gritty Southerners transplanted in Southern California
The 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.
