At BoomerJack's Grill & Bar, diners feast on spicy and savory dishes, complemented by refreshing drinks and the frequent shouts of cheering sports fans. Appetizers include hand-battered and fried mushrooms, pickles, and the restaurant?s eponymous Boomer chips, freshly sliced jalape?os served with a homemade sauce. Chefs also sculpt a half pound of ground beef into a behemoth of a burger, adorned with aged cheddar or blue cheese crumbles. Lemon pepper or Cajun seasoning spices up a fillet of farm-raised catfish, while grilled peppers and onions top Ray?s sizzling sausage sandwich made from ground filet mignon and pork.
Black Dog Pizza is a laid-back sports lounge serving a wide array of Italian-American food. Seven specialty pizzas and a build-your-own variety come baked in thin and traditional crusts, while pastas are made from homemade sauces and meatballs. Oven-baked sandwiches include one stuffed with meatballs, and in an Italian take on an American staple, hand-packed Angus burgers come topped with bacon shaped like Sophia Loren. Multiple televisions and projection screens line the casual eatery's exposed brick walls, providing guests a chance to monitor several games at once.
Walls lined with school memorabilia and local trinkets envelop patrons with a warm neighborhood vibe at the independently owned Buck n' Loons, and the welcoming embrace extends to the restaurant’s varied menu of homespun comfort cuisine. Nosh a half-pound slab of juicy steak burgers, such as the green-chile-covered New Mexico ($7.99) and the bacon cheeseburger ($8.49). Or wield a knife and fork and tame a growling stomach with the decadent one-pound animal burger, which tops double meat and cheese with a sliced hot dog, chili, and Fritos ($10.99). A rivulet of gravy floats alongside a shoreline of chicken-fried steak ($10.99), and mountains of mashed spuds and vegetables round out the protein topography of the meat loaf dinner ($9.99). Personable staff members help idle hands find solace in wholesome handhelds such as the breaded pickles and jalapenos ($5.49) or the loaded Irish chicken nachos ($8.99).
