Bacon is a chefs’ playground where pigs’ bodies are the wonderland. At this colorful, fast-casual joint off South Congress, Chef Tyler Johnson has the enviable job of making 350 pounds of bacon weekly (in any flavor his heart desires), plus any number of hams, bellies, and porky products. And that beloved bacon is woven throughout the menu. Excessive? Perhaps. But locals seem to agree that everything tastes better with cured hog belly. Bacon does gangbusters for brunch with bacon-studded, fried chicken-topped waffles, and steady business with the lunch crowd, serving heaping sandwiches, creative specials, and sides.
