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.

With more than 40 TVs, a menu of homemade pub eats, and a wide selection of beer and cocktails, Nick’s Place sets the standard for what a neighborhood bar should be. Hand-tossed pizzas cooked in a vintage oven come out crisp, cheesy, and loaded with meats and veggies. Dishes of homemade mac and cheese, tacos made with pizza dough, and 14 ounce rib eye steaks give customers even more to cheer about. And that’s not even counting the continual assault of sports being broadcast in nearly every cardinal direction, making it nearly impossible to miss that winning touchdown, run, or checkmate.
In America, playing sports is almost as much of a national pastime as eating while watching other people play sports. Sam's Bar & Grill facilitates the latter with TVs aplenty, a menu of comfort food, and frosty pint glasses. While the bartenders serve up draft beer and margaritas, the chefs cook burgers and foot-long hot dogs atop the grill. They also whip up a number of shareable appetizers, including homemade onion rings and the eatery?s signature plate of fries, topped with bacon bits, gooey cheese, jalapenos, chives, and ranch dressing.
On select nights, however, the TVs defer to DJs. From their high-tech rig in the corner of the bar, they compose mixes and encourage guests to dance, or at least play rhythmic games of Duck, Duck, Goose.
Texadelphia's menu of cheesy, steaky, 100%-Angus-beefy goodness kicks off any meal with a bang. Order some chips and guac ($5.49–$5.99) and chicken tenders ($6.49–$6.99) before tearing into the Founder's Favorite, the cheesesteak that started it all (Angus beef or thin-sliced chicken breast, cheese, mushrooms, and jalapeños, $6.89–$6.99). Branch out along southern lines with the Texican, a beef or chicken cheesesteak with all the trimmings and a side of chili con queso for topping or spooning ($6.89–$6.99), or the Hickory, laden with house-recipe hickory barbecue sauce and manned by a crew of mouth-pleasing cherry peppers ($6.89–$6.99). Items of non-Philly origin also dot the menu, such as the grilled-chicken sandwich on a toasted wheat bun ($6.29–$6.59) and the smoked turkey and guacamole salad ($6.79). Prices and menu offerings vary slightly between the two locations.
“Richmond Arms Pub isn’t a place where they’ll be happy to put a game on for you,” the Houston Press remarked about this European football bar in its “Houston’s Top 10 Sports Bars” feature. “It’s a place where, when necessary, they open up at […] dawn for fans who are an ocean removed from their favorite teams.” Indeed, sports are the centerpiece at Richmond Arms Pub, and soccer reins supreme. One look at the TV sports schedule should make that clear, though devotees of American sports can also get their fill since baseball games and flag-eating competitions also flash across the TV screens. Fans of all stripes can rejoice together over the extensive beer list, which includes brews from England, Germany, Holland, and the U.S., and over the menu of pub favorites that includes everything from buffalo wings and burgers to English specialties such as bangers and mash.
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.
