Michigan’s Best Local Food: Rusty Spoke Bar & Grill’s Offers Fun Vibe, “Amazing Food and Drink”
MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, MI – From fresh tacos to signature burgers and wings, Rusty Spoke Bar & Grill has been a Muskegon County favorite for seven years.
Owner Josie Verby opened the local bar in 2015, naming it after bicycle spokes, the connecting rods between a bicycle hub and its rim.
Inspired by her love for all things bicycle, Verby has adapted the bar and grill for anyone who rides on two wheels, whether motorbikes, bicycles or mopeds.
Verby said that when she opened the restaurant she already owned another bar at the time called Moreland Tavern and wanted to expand her ideas.
“It’s a very diverse bar,” Verby said. “We have line dancing, karaoke, live bands and drag shows. The main thing here is to get in and have fun.
Each week, the bar offers line dancing on Tuesdays, karaoke on Thursdays and Fridays, and live music on Saturdays.
Guests can also catch a drag show on the second Saturday of every month, except for the Halloween on Brooms show in October.
When it comes to menu items, Rusty Spoke’s handmade tacos and signature burgers continue to be top sellers.
Each taco is made with homemade shells and filled to the brim with seasoned beef crumbs, lettuce, tomato and cheese for $3. On Tuesday, customers can order the tacos for $1 less.
The signature Spoke Burger is topped with fried jalapeños, onion rings, American or Swiss cheese, and house barbecue sauce for $9. On Thursday, customers can get any burger and fries for $2 less.
To round off the meal, guests can also choose from a variety of select cocktails and beers. A favorite on the menu is the drunken monkey for $5. It comes with bananas, a splash of Amaretto, a blend of orange juice and pineapple juice, and a splash of Grand Mariner.
The company boasted “amazing food and drink” since its launch.
The Rusty Spoke also promotes being a diverse and accommodating place to unwind, offering plenty of options for an evening with changing entertainment.
“I want people to have a good time when they come in,” Verby said. “That’s why so much happens during the week. We have a bit of everything for everyone.
Hours of operation are Tuesday through Wednesday, 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday, 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday through Saturday, and 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday. Contact the company at (231) 773-0045 or online.
