April and Spring are always an exciting time in Las Vegas! It’s finally warm enough for women to start wearing next to nothing when walking the Vegas streets. One thing we can all agree on, when ladies were less clothes, life is better for everyone. April is especially awesome at Hogs, because we finally get to release our Spring food and drink menu!
We’ve worked harder than ever on this year’s Spring release. Now that we have your mouth watering, let’s take a glimpse at our new specialties. For those looking to start slow, go hard, and finish fast, our new menu items have got you covered!
the Hog – If you’re looking for a six inch Italian, try hooking up with one of the chefs at Pizza Rock – at our saloon, the Hog comes in one size only, 12 inches. And for all you foodies out there, you know length isn’t the only thing that matters when it comes to a good sub. This hot dog hoogie packs enough girth to make the strippers on Boulder Highway choke. Now that’s what we call a sandwich… $9
the Heifer – Inspired by our never ending obsession with whiskey and burgers, we present to you the greatest burger one can find in Sin City. We start by marinating the burger meat in Jameson Whiskey for over 24 hours. From there, we skip frying this bitch, and serve it to you bloody raw on the finest buns in Vegas. This burger will not only quench your hunger, at 80 proof, it will fuck you up as well… $9
Swig & Swine – Your choice of the Hog or Heifer, served with a cold can of 805 Beer, and to wash it all down, an over-sized shot of Hogs Piss for you and your bartender. Life is good… $19
Pink Taco Tuesday* – We know you love your tacos moist, these tacos are the moistest around. You’ll have no problems stuffing you face into this pink wonderland. Once you’ve finished up the job, you can wash it all down with a chilled shot of Deep Eddy’s Vodka, paired with an ice cold PBR. F*ck yesss… $19
*In order to keep our pink delights as fresh as possible, we only offer this combo on Taco Tuesdays. You can always trust that pink tacos coming from behind this bar, are some of the freshest tacos in all of Vegas!
And there you have it folks, the newest additions to our lates menu offerings! Can’t wait to see you this Spring!!!

HOGS & HEIFERS SALOON | NO COVER | FREE MOTORCYCLE PARKING | GIRLS ON THE BAR
The idea for opening a bar and calling it Hogs & Heifers was conceived in, of all places, a bar. Allan Dell was a self-proclaimed functioning alcoholic and figured he spent enough time sitting at a bar and that he might as well make some money while he sat there. Allan’s two friends and drinking buddies were a Master Carpenter and a Graphic Design Artist and he talked them into helping him build a bar. They would all drink for free and get laid regularly and for three broke guys in their early to mid twenties, who could ask for anything more. Allan’s father agreed to finance his project if he could find an experienced bar owner to “father” him in the business. Enter Tom McNeil, legend in the Dive Bar business. McNeil owned the Village Idiot in Manhattan’s East Side, which was the Boys’ favorite watering hole, where they could sit for hours drinking ice cold Pabst Blue Ribbon for a $1.75 a can. Allan knew that he wanted to open a bar that had to do with motorcycles and women and the original logo did, in fact, include an illustration of a chopper. The Boys were trying to come up with a name, while sitting in the Village Idiot one afternoon…”Hogs & something”. On the wall above the bar was a sign for a Heifer Auction, and a heifer being a cow that has not yet been bred, is essentially a virgin cow. The name Hogs & Heifers was born. The fact that the bar ended up being in a real meat market was simply due to the affordable rent at the time, but it was a perfect match and had a great deal to do with the success of the business.
Hogs & Heifers Saloon was to be an all American classic country and southern rock-n-roll dive bar. Allan knew he wanted it to have the look and feel of a gin mill and that he wanted to hang “stuff” all over the walls. Other than that, there was little else that he had thought about. He had a lot of friends who liked to drink and planned on throwing a party for them every night. Allan may never have imagined that it would turn into the famous bar it is today, but it was absolutely his pride and joy and he considered it his greatest achievement and reveled in its quick success.
Having entered the picture prior to its opening, Michelle Dell was the first bartender to be hired. The routine performed and style of dress worn by the bartenders behind the bar, which has made Hogs & Heifers famous, was born from Michelle’s heart. Hogs & Heifers opened in November of 1992 during an unseasonably cold winter. There was literally no heat source of any kind in the bar and it was so cold you could often see your own breath. Both Allan and Michelle believed in the notion of less is more when it came to dressing behind the bar and it was always freezing; did we mention the bar had no heat? Finally, Allan bought these little space heaters that did next to nothing to provide heat and with Necessity being the Mother of all Invention, Michelle began dancing on the bar–in the empty bar–as a means to keep warm. She would throw a few dollars in the jukebox and just get up on the bar and dance. Little did she know it would become the trademark theme of Hogs & Heifers and lead to countless celebrities dancing on the bar and donating their bras. The Julia Roberts photo was seen around the world and her bra still hangs there today, albeit hidden beneath some 18,000 bras! Michelle’s famous routine has inspired a Major Motion Picture and a league of copy cat Bars.
Essentially, Allan and Michelle, and their friends, were just a bunch of kids with nothing to lose and they threw a party that they enjoyed. They were fortunate and blessed that so many others would love to come to their party and would do so repeatedly. The two were married in Reno, Nevada, on November 16th, 1993. Allan Dell passed away on June 7, 1997. Hogs & Heifers continues to be run by Michelle Dell who was the sole proprietor of the New York City location. She now lives in Las Vegas, close to her favorite saloon!
