Bounty Hunter - Napa

Cynthia | Nov 7, 2005 08:56 AM

After a two-hour wine tasting at Swanson Vineyards, we opted for an early Sunday dinner in Napa at Bounty Hunter - noted for its "rare wines and provisions". By this time we were drinking root beers and water, but we will be lured to return to explore the fine wine offerings.

Two ten-foot bears flank the front door (well, they look at least that tall!)...couple of saddles for seating at the bar...BBQ grill out the back door...chalkboard specials...friendly service!

Best value: $20 beer-can roasted chicken for two, highly seasoned with a Cajun rub and juicy, with salad and bread - generous leftovers to take home

Ribs (small order of 5, $12) smoked to perfection, served with mustard and BBQ sauces. I have not had better ribs anywhere...good char, toothsome, falling off the bone goodness with vinaigrette cabbage slaw garnish.

Sausages (2 for $12)-while these are excellent; it was too meager for hungry hubby - we shared our roast chicken and ribs to fill up his plate...
