As soon as you open the door to T-Bones Sports Pub, you're surrounded by the sights, smells, and sound of game day. Crowds cheer and groan while watching the restaurant's multiple TVs, each broadcasting the day's best games so guests can keep up with multiple sports without training a carrier pigeon to update scoreboards. To complement its beer list, T-Bones offers classic pub appetizers such as hot wings, chili cheese fries, and grand-slam chicken nachos. When guests get hungrier during overtime, they can order a house entree, which range from BLTs to 8-ounce burgers topped with chili cheese or bacon.
Del-Mar Lanes is set up for bowlers of all abilities: If you want to take your game to the next level, you can sign up for their league-bowling competitions, which meet five nights a week. Alternatively, players can also choose to plug the gutters with optional bumpers, which help level the playing field for younger players or those who prefer to bowl with footballs. As guests chase strikes and spares, Del-Mar Lanes? snack bar keeps appetites at bay with fried mushrooms and hot dogs, which can be washed down with soft drinks or beer.
Christian’s Tailgate Bar & Grill has been wetting Houston’s collective whistle for more than 70 years. A prime spot for cold beer and sports, guests can turn to one of the many TVs and watch their favorite teams take the field, the court, or the witness stand. But the main draw here might be the burgers, which the Houston Press salivated over when they named the joint one of Houston’s top 10 sports bars. Third- and half-pound patties make for a burger that's “fresh and large, and one of the better ones in town.” Try one topped with onion rings, or an open-faced rendition loaded down with chili and cheese.

Patrons duck through an enormous beer barrel in order to enter Taps House of Beer. The entryway hints at the ranks of 90 tap handles and condensation-dappled bottles that wait inside, populating the massive beer list. Customers find a seat at wooden tables or a brown-leather couch in the exposed-brick room, sipping on Delirium Tremens, Chimay, Maui Brewing Company’s Coconut Porter, or Racer 5, an oak-hued IPA infused with the West-Coast sunniness of Cascade hops. From the kitchen emerge pulled-pork sliders and nachos, which are easy to split among friends, unlike the last pizza in a life raft. Flat-screen televisions fill the air with news of football games, the sound punctuated by the chatter of a beer club and the performances of karaoke singers.
From half-pound Angus burgers to fish tacos, every item on H-Town Bar & Grill’s menu is made to-order. Regionally influenced grub sits atop tables like an edible map of North America, charting a course from the Aloha burger’s grilled ham and pineapple to the El Diablo burger’s roasted jalapeños and chipotle mayo. Flat-screen TVs line the spacious eatery, where barkeeps man a full-service bar, doling out domestic and imported brews and house wines to help wash down barbecue chicken sandwiches and steak caesar salads. Guests can also reserve the casual space for private events or sneak into someone else’s party dressed as a philly cheesesteak to blend in with the surrounding environs.
