On our last day in Pensacola, after the truck was packed and the movers were gone, I wanted to cross a couple last minute things off of our Pensacola bucket list. The first was grabbing drinks at The Bridge Bar. I heard this place was a bit of a dive but had the best view of the sunset. We made plans to meet a couple of friends to grab drinks and check out the sunset before saying goodbye. By chance, I read in the local paper that the first meeting of the "Sun-setters Club" would be meeting at The Bridge Bar that night. They have drink specials, host a contest for best sunset picture (giftcard and published in the newspaper) and give tips for taking the best sunset pics. This is right up my alley, and I can't believe it is starting up right as we are leaving!
When we got to The Bridge Bar, I was pleasantly surprised. The inside of the bar is cozy but the outside has a huge double leveled deck, right on the water. The place is gorgeous, the drinks are cheap, and we are totally kicking ourselves for not going sooner! Oh, and of course the sunset totally lived up!
The final item we crossed off the list is a bit of a bizarre one. On Davis Hwy, there are two gas stations right before you get on the highway. One is a nice BP and the other is a sketchy looking Shell. I only get gas at the BP but we always talk about this weird little taco stand in the back of the sketchy Shell. It's so bizarre but we would joke about trying it every time we passed. A couple weeks ago, I was talking about Mexican food with my friend Bromli and she said not only had her husband tried the sketchy taco stand but he loved it! After we heard that, we knew we had to try it.
We were filling up our cars with gas and decided to just pop over and try one taco each before going to The Bridge Bar. While they don't speak great english, the owners are SO incredibly friendly and kind. OMG! These were the most delicious and authentic mexican street tacos! I have to be honest and admit that after The Bridge Bar, we went back and got more tacos, pineapple agua frescas, and horchatas. Another great find on our last day and another must try!
