10 Minutes, $10
Pony Express Ride
Locals Only Licensed to Ride Pony Express
A California driver’s license affirming Napa County residency is a ticket to ride the “Pony Express,” at the Bounty Hunter Smokin’ BBQ this season. General Manager Will Wright announced this week that his $10 lunch will be served within 10 minutes after orders are placed at Bounty Hunter’s sidewalk or indoor tables through the Spring and Summer months. For those who just can’t leave their work place or mid-day meetings, takeout orders are encouraged.
True to Bounty Hunter’s Western persona, Will has dubbed his lunch special the “Pony Express,” and serves it in the downtown eatery’s trademark lavish portions. Locals may choose from an array of tasty options including a pulled pork sandwich, a luscious Reuben and Shredded BBQ Chicken, among other nifty nibbles and an array of sides that range from grilled seasonal vegetables to potato salad and coleslaw.
Naturally, every plate includes Guss’ Half Sour Pickles from New York, and Bounty Hunter’s selection of three homemade barbecue sauces. A couple of those details that have earned Bounty Hunter Mark Pope’s carefully honed wine bar and restaurant Award - Winning status Each Pony Express lunch arrives with the diner's choice of non-alcoholic drinks including iced tea, lemonade, ginger ale and root beer. So generous are the portions that those with modest appetites may be content to share their order with a friend.
