Two former soldiers plan to make Marines feel at home in their new restaurant by decking it out in camouflage netting with sandbags lining the walls — and the menu will feature items chicken “M-WRAPS,” napalm nachos and homemade MREs.
Chris and Daisy Oswalt, a couple from southern California, plan to open up the FOB Bunker Bar and Grill early next year, bringing military-themed dining and drinking to a new restaurant near Camp Pendleton. From the decor to the menu, every detail about the restaurant highlights the couple’s commitment to supporting veterans, including their plan to donate to military-related charities.
“We’re about the survivors, the guys who went through hell,” Chris Oswalt said. “For this generation of desert warrior, they’re going to see a lot of the things from the FOB to make it like home as much as possible.”
The authenticity will be enhanced by having a Sergeant Major at the front door checking for handwashing and PT belts.
