A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.
While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.
Whether they're busy hand-battering pickles and freshly cut zucchini or slathering wings in one of three succulent sauces, Crazy Frogs’ kitchen staffers craft each of their appetizers and bar snacks fresh daily. An extensive stock of beers, cocktails, wines, and imported liquors helps wash down meals as customers lounge on Crazy Frogs' roomy outdoor patio or inside its spacious bar. There, abundant televisions broadcast sports matchups while a shuffleboard table, dartboards, and pool tables bring out patrons’ own competitive spirits. Pool sharks and confused shark hunters take over the tables for eight-ball tournaments every Friday and Saturday evening, which begin alongside melodious rounds of karaoke.
In 1998, the clack of billiards balls met the clink of cold beers at the first Fast Eddie’s Sports Tavern and Social Clubs in Amarillo. Since then, 17 more Fast Eddie's locations have sprung up across Texas and Louisiana, each letting guests sink corner shots at 8- and 9-foot Olhausen pool tables while sharing a few drinks and snacks such as deep-fried hot dogs. Beyond the felt, home runs and touchdowns play out on multiple big-screen TVs as darts fly into targets and foosball tables re-create the exciting theatrics of gymnasts struggling to play soccer.
Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

JJ's Cluckers satiates poultry-loving palates with an extensive menu of flavorsome fowl served in a fun and family-oriented setting. Warm up incisors with pickle chips—battered and fried dill slices served with ranch dressing ($5.25)—before treating taste buds to sauce-soused wings ($7.99 for 10 bone-in wings). Liquid wing enhancers range from the silky-smooth honey barbecue to the hotter chipotle to the scorching code 5150, which provides an epicurean experience akin to hacky sacking a lava rock with your tongue.
