Bacon Trail & Macon Bacon Fun

Introducing the Macon Bacon Trail: a sizzling culinary journey through the flavors of Macon, Georgia, inspired by the city’s beloved baseball team, the Macon Bacon. This delectable trail offers food enthusiasts and baseball fans alike a chance to indulge in a variety of mouthwatering dishes from local eateries while celebrating the excitement of the summer baseball season, which kicks off in late May!

The Macon Bacon Trail features a lineup of diverse restaurants, each offering their own unique spin on classic dishes available all year-long and they all have one main beloved ingredient included: Bacon! It can be a sweet treat like the Rookery’s Jimmy Carter 
Milkshake, a banana ice cream milkshake with peanut butter and a slice of bacon on top or dig in to a warm sweet sugary waffle served with a scoop of vanilla and sprinkled with pieces of bacon at Marie’s Lounge. Of course, don’t miss out on the savory options that bring in worldwide cuisine tastes such as Kinjo’s Miso Corn and Bacon Fritters with a house dipping sauce or Miramar’s Rockefeller Oysters with creamed spinach, parmesan cheese and bacon baked oysters. 

One of the best parts of the Macon Bacon Trail is the diversity of offerings as you can try trail items while having a beautiful up-scale date at a restaurant like Natalia’s who is offering the Ketterbaugh Salad or bring the whole family to try H&H’s famous Midnight Rider Biscuit, featuring fried chicken bacon jam and Betsy’s pimento cheese!

This tasty tour was created as a delicious homage to the Macon Bacon, who play a summer series for the Coastal Plain League through July 27th with several home games that involve fun theme nights like Star Wars, Super Heroes and Chuck Norris Night. Cheer on the team with their famous mascot, Kevin Bacon, a 7-foot strip of bacon that is big on games, and pranks!
