Inside the Kitchen: Blue Tractor in Traverse City

Whether its a pulled pork sandwich you’re looking for–or maybe a steaming bowl of mac and cheese (made with a smokey bechamel sauce)–or just good beer and good company, The Blue Tractor in Traverse City does it all with flare.

The dining room has a nice homey feel to it; on every wall, you’ll find pieces of old farm equipment, along with the other bits and bobs of a bygone era.

Despite all of that, the name pays tribute, not to farming, but to the blue collar workers the restaurant caters to.

If barbecue is your thing–look no further: here, they smoke practically everything on the menu. 

The party continues out back where you’ll find the Tractor’s new patio space–complete with a food truck and a full line of taps, featuring mostly Michigan beer.
