Conceived by Las Vegas restaurateur Mark DiMartino, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery evokes Ireland by way of Vegas, with waitresses dressed in plaid mini kilts shouldering trays of chilled beer and pub fare. Like an enchilada stuffed with four-leaf clovers, the eatery’s Irish nachos interpret a south-of-the-border classic in a Celtic way, slathering potato chips in cheese sauce and seasoned ground beef; alternatively, pot roast and vegetables simmer traditionally in the Olde Dublin Irish stew’s Guinness-infused beef stock. Barkeeps pour a full bar’s worth of wine, cocktails, and beer, which surfaces in bottles, bombers, and multi-brew mixes such as the Blue Moon and Guinness combination. High-definition TVs glow with a ceaseless parade of professional and college baseball, basketball, and hockey, and live bands add to the entertainment smorgasbord on Friday and Saturday nights.
The talented meat maestros at Bates City Bar-B-Que win over palates with a toothsome menu of smoked slabs and saucy fixings. Diners can wrap their mitts around a pulled-chicken sandwich for bites of slow-smoked poultry ($5) or match their mandibles against a full slab of Kansas City–style ribs before stacking the clean bones for a meat-inspired game of Jenga ($14). The sampler-platter mixed plate treats meat connoisseurs to a half pound of ribs and a choice of two meats ($10.50), and sides of garlic mashed potatoes ($1.75) and cornbread ($1) sop up reservoirs of tangy sauce. As guests feast on the fall-off-the-bone delights of Bates City's carnivorous spread, they can belly up to the full bar or take in the air on the outdoor patio, wistfully remembering the hickory-hazed memories of barbecues past.
From their perch inside the Ramada Plaza, Big D's Bar & Grill reveals the defensive strategy to overcoming hunger in a menu of brawny grilled American fare. Practice taste bud calisthenics with an appetizer of beer-battered State Fair cheese curds ($6.99), which provide a taste of carnival festivities without having to lick a Tilt-A-Whirl. A lineup of all-beef patties is headlined by the pepper jack bacon burger sporting jalapeños and spicy cheese ($8.49) and co-captained by the D's chili-cheese burger, topped with a choice of pepper jack or nacho cheese and served on a toasted bun ($8.99). Diners can tackle the baked spaghetti parmesan ($8.99) with their mouths or match their appetites against the guiltless grilled chicken plated with rice and the chef's vegetable medley ($8.99).
Greek Boy's Gyro dishes out homemade Greek-American food just a few blocks from Lambeau Field. Try a hamburger spiked with zesty feta crumbles or a pita filled with savory gyro meat, pork, and chicken souvlaki. You can also opt for classic diner fare such as Chicago-style hot dogs and Philly cheesesteak sandwiches.
The walls, tables, and trim of the casual restaurant are decked out in a striking scheme of white and cobalt blue, the same colors that grace the Greek flag and Zeus's rec room. You can also feel free to dine on the sunny sidewalk patio.
With more than 30 years’ experience in the pie-to-oven-to-stomach transportation business, Godfather's family-friendly establishment delights customers with a menu of specialty pies, salads, wings, and other Italian delights. Pizzas range from the mini 6-inch cheese ($3.99) to the large 14-inch classic combo, where the naked pizza frolics in a garden of veggies and then is bombarded with pepperoni, beef, sausage, and flashbulbs from starved paparazzi ($16.99). Customize pies to preferred levels of deliciousness by choosing a crust—golden (buttery pan-style) or thin (light and crispy)—then gather an outfit of pie-packers from a lineup of italian sausage, pineapple, jalapeños, mushrooms, and more. For more three-dimensional fare, feel free to load up on buffalo wings ($4.99/six) or garlic bread ($2.49/four) or deep-fry a copy of Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over.
Chefs at Los Magueyes cram authentic Mexican zest into each richly flavorful nook and cranny of the expansive menu. Revamp your tongue's color palate with a coat of avocado-green guacamole ($2.95+), or avoid crossing paths with the fork that stole your spoon by diving into a handy order of beef and bean nachos ($5.25). The burrito especial Texano, topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream, envelops a meaty mixture of grilled beef, shrimp, and chicken ($9.50), while the chilies poblanos offer veggie devourers satisfyingly verdant brain fuel ($8.50). Turn the meal into a celebration of epicurean delights with a classic margarita ($4.25+) or draft beer ($3+), libations that go with the menu's zesty flavor-notes like courtroom dramas go with Oscars.
