WHAT’S THE BEST BUDGET BAR EQUIPMENT IN 2018?

People are always inquiring about the best value bar equipment, how much it costs and where to purchase it. When it comes toADVANCE TABCO underbar stainless equipment, Advance Tabco is always a name that comes to mind. While I don’t consider them a leader in high-end bar solutions, I recognize Advance Tabco more as a leader in value. Manufactured and distributed in the USA, Advance Tabco also has one of the most comprehensive food service equipment lineups, which includes sinks, shelving, work tables and hot food tables. So for anyone unfamiliar with their name, Advance Tabco is pretty well known in the architectural community. Included in their array of underbar equipment is their “Basic” series, which I refer to as their “Value” series. Most of the items in this category are sold on Amazon and nearly all include free shipping. The affiliate links are included below.

Let's just jump in on the equipment review. This bar equipment review highlights the most commonly-used items in bar design. Unlike our first equipment cost review, I'm including a downloadable layout of this bar plan, which is an approximately 20' x 8' L-shaped bar and each item is highlighted and included in the associated equipment list and price list - both of which can be downloaded here:
