Beef jerky is fast becoming the new bar nuts — the tastier, less dirty, and non-free version of the typical bar snack. Elliotborough Mini Bar and Ted's Butcherblock have some pretty delicious options, but for us it's the spicy Hot Rod from Royal American that stole our jerky lovin' hearts. The housemade treat offers the perfect touch of heat. It's also got just the right amount of jerk. No one wants to be gnawing away on a piece of dried meat in public, but we also didn't order a meat-flavored gummy worm. And if you're not into spice, they've got an alternative in the smoky bourbon.
