Stinger's Sports Bar & Grill sates sports fanatics with a menu of standard pub provender, 16 beers on tap, and a plethora of flat-screen TVs. Cooks lovingly marry french fries with an octuplet of combos ($5–$8), including pork fritters ($7), brats ($7), and fish 'n' chips ($8), and buffalo wings ($0.50 each; 10-wing minimum), and personal pizzas ($5–$7) dance a bacchanalian jig with all-day, everyday Bomber specials. Like sleeping under a fluffy blanket of pancakes, plates keep warm beneath all-day servings of breakfast foods, including the bacon or sausage breakfast burrito ($6) and The Stinger ($6), a new york strip steak and eggs that carry out platter wars over territory with hash browns and toast. DJ sets on Friday and Saturday and karaoke Monday–Thursday fill the bar with amateur and professional tunes, and send feet shuffling round the dance floor.

The Australian AZ Sports Bar welcomes patrons to a carefree world of flame-grilled burgers, spicy chicken wings, and meaty flatbread pizzas sided with pints of frosty beer and potent cocktails. Guests stop in early for breakfasts of buttermilk pancake stacks or biscuits and gravy, or pop in later for lunches and dinners of grilled chicken sandwiches, Angus-beef burgers topped with bacon, and fries cooked in duck fat.

As visitors drink and dine, 60 different screens broadcast professional football, hockey, basketball, and baseball games, as well as pay-per-view sports. In addition to typical American pub offerings, visitors find influences from Down Under throughout the restaurant, with a section of the menu devoted to Australian meat pies and sausage rolls, rugby games on TV, and bathroom sinks that drain counter-clockwise.

Saddle Ranch Chop House allows diners to put together a feast from a menu loaded with steaks and salads, then rock and ride with the restaurant's "rock meets Western" theme.

To wash down a full order of barbecue baby back ribs ($21.99), take part in the Texas Tea Party, a stiff concoction of vodka, gin, rum, tequila, sweet-and-sour mix, and Coke. Saddle Ranch Chop House's seasoned chefs also cook breakfast and brunchy grub, such as cinnamon swirl Texas toast ($9.99) and buttermilk pancakes topped with fresh fruit ($8.99), until 3 p.m.

Though it may have "saloon" in its name, this Western-themed eatery is appropriate for all ages. The restaurant area is often filled with families dining on burgers, half-pound BLTs, and fresh smoked brisket, while a separate bar area is set aside for more adult pastimes, such as sipping beers and cocktails, listening to local bands, or jumbling up Scrabble tiles to invent new words. Chefs grill up 8 oz. filet steaks topped with garlic butter or Blue Moon-battered cod filets for diners, who cheer on the sports teams playing on the TVs scattered throughout the restaurant. They also serve up a wide range of appetizers, such as sweet corn fritters, beer battered onion rings, and Southern-style chili potato skins.

McFadden's Restaurant & Saloon, which now has locations from coast to coast, first opened its doors just a few blocks from Times Square in New York City in 1977. The founder, Steve McFadden, drew upon his Irish heritage when creating the menu and even incorporated his family's own shepherd’s pie recipe. Diners will also find international pub grub such as burgers, sandwiches, and hand-cut top sirloin to accompany the bar’s full selection of beers and cocktails. The atmosphere gets lively after dark here, as groups cheer on their favorite sports teams, shimmy to DJ-spun music, and perform round-off back-handsprings.
