Samuel Horne’s Tavern
Samuel Horne’s Tavern is a quaint watering hole in the heart of Old Folsom that boasts a wide variety of revolving craft brews on tap(16 to be exact) and quality food. When first entering, I immediately became slightly cramped due to the modest size of the the tavern itself. However, as I became acclimated to the surroundings my need for more space dissipated and I became part of the enjoyable enteractive environment that only a small local tavern can provide. Due to the outstanding variety of brews available, I will not mention all of what each of us quenched our thirst with, but Pliney the Elder was our first choice. On this RSB adventure we ordered two different burgers. One was the Johnny Cash Burger and the other was a burger called the J.T. Deluxe. The Johnny Cash burger had bacon, cheddar cheese, grilled onions and a bourbon-espresso redeye sauce(aka- bbq sauce). The J.T. Deluxe came with bacon, blue cheese, grilled onions and a fantastic red pepper remoulade. Each burger was accompanied with good quality produce and a soft bun. Unfortunately for us, and our taste-buds, all three burgers were sinfully overcooked to a solid medium-well(a true crime in our book) which prevented these burgers from reaching their true star potential. Despite the overcooked burgers, Samuel Horne’s Tavern is well worth the trip for the quality brews alone. And since the RSB’s are a very forgiving lot, we plan to be back soon in search of the oddly elusive medium rare burger. Cheers!
