I love the music and the mango margaritas. R&B tunes from the 90s play in the backdrop. Surrounded by wooded decor, Harley’s has a bar look and feel, but the staff stresses the importance of providing a family friendly atmosphere to their customers. Kids are highly welcomed in this BBQ joint.
The bacon mac and cheese is spectacular as well as the mashed potatoes and gravy. We tasted the meatball wrapped in bacon and soaked in a tangy BBQ sauce, BBQ baby back ribs, and BBQ chicken wings. We also tried the fried chicken and waffles which was good, but we greatly favored the side dishes.
I love the vibe at Harley’s. I sang along to all my favorite throwback hits while sipping the most delightful mango margarita. I will definitely go back for the music and the frozen margaritas!
