You can order more than just your classic burger or hot dog when catching a game at Dream Restaurant and Sports Bar.

They top burgers with toppings that range from classics like chili cheese to more eclectic flavors found on the Island burger—a patty drizzled in Jack Daniels Caribbean jerk sauce and a slice of pineapple. Chefs top the all-beef hot dogs with combinations such as BBQ sauce, bacon, and cheddar, or scoops of baked mac and cheese. These pair with the unique flavors of house cocktails, which range from sweet to sour.

On Mondays and Wednesdays, visitors belt out karaoke favorites, while on Tuesdays and Thursdays they take on trivia challenges to recall obscure facts, such as the name of America's current president.

The moonshine is always flowing at P'cheen.

In the kitchen, chef Alex prepares a menu of international fusion dishes that complement the throwback libations.
