Kaiser Tiger is a casual bar and restaurant that is all about the meat. Its menu primarily consists of sausages, burgers and bacon. But you’re really here to eat “The Bomb” - five pounds of beef and pork sausage stuffed with bacon and wrapped in a brown sugar bacon weave. It’s served with buns and fries, and after you consume that delicious monstrosity, go hang on the giant patio with tables large enough to seat groups of about 15.
