Rev on Down to OCC Road House
American Chopper is an American reality television series that originally aired on the Discovery Channel in 2003 and continued on in one form or another until last year. The series centers on Paul Teutul Sr. and his son Paul Teutul Jr, and is set at his family’s New York motorcycle shop Orange County Choppers. The show can still be streamed on Discovery+.
Paul Teutul Sr. recently opened a one-of-a-kind Orange County Choppers-themed restaurant in Clearwater in June 2021 called OCC Roadhouse and Museum.
The $7 million, 9.5-acre compound is a joint venture between Teutul and Keith Overton, the longtime former president of TradeWinds Island Resort in St. Pete Beach.
The restaurant boasts 11,000 square feet of indoor seating for 370 customers with pool tables, shuffleboard, darts and a gift shop.
The restaurant is totally kid-friendly with families dining at OCC Road House all the time (with the possible exception of Bike Night on Thursdays!)
The new OCC museum features pieces from Teutul’s collection of motorcycle memorabilia from his years on American Chopper and in fact includes several custom choppers from the show itself.
A “patch wall” displays Teutul’s collection of tens of thousands of military and first responder patches from around the world, including those from September 11.
There’s also a 25,000-square-foot concert pavilion outside.
Teutul lives part-time at his farm in Brooksville, so keep your eyes peeled because he can be seen at OCC Roadhouse from time to time!
