Here’s another place where the atmosphere is as good as the burger. The Shooting Star Saloon opened in 1879. According to some folklore, it’s the oldest bar west of the Mississippi River. You can go in, shoot some pool, listen to Johnny Cash on the jukebox and feel as though you’re stepping back in time a couple of decades. The Star Burger has a knockwurst on two beef patties, grilled onions, melted cheese, lettuce and tomato, served on a grilled bun. It also comes with potato chips. And don’t bother adding or subtracting ingredients, the burger comes the way it comes. No special orders, people.
