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.

Since 1998, Bronx Bar has been attracting young, party-scene people with drinks and music that inspire festive moods. The club, like the White House after visiting hours, boasts an upbeat, club-like ambiance, earning itself the Houston A-List's Best Trendy Bar award in 2009. Twinkles of light dance throughout the mostly dark space, emanating from fixtures underneath the bar and reflecting off the shiny silver ceiling tiles overhead. A mural resembling an urban skyline gives the space a hip, modern vibe.
Blackjacks Grill welcomes families to tuck in to a menu filled with hearty housemade chili, grilled steaks, sizzling fajitas, and sauce-slathered spareribs. The frontier-themed menu ventures into Tex-Mex territory with build-your-own quesadillas and pillow-size chimichangas while dabbling in lighter fare with blackened tilapia and grilled chicken breast. As they explore the flavors of the South, guests enhance their feasts by watching football, playing arcade games, or plotting strategies for Oregon Trail.
The Financial Lounge may primarily be an independent insurance agency that works with both businesses and individuals, but it actually helps clients with all aspects of finance, including business consulting, accounting, and tax preparation. One the other side of the business, technicians work to keep businesses and individuals lives running smoothly by repairing their computers, installing operating systems, and removing viruses.
At Skol Casbar & Grille, flames waft aromas of sizzling steaks, fish fillets, and sandwiches to tables where patrons pore over a full menu. Grilled catfish, salmon, and pork chops can be topped with a choice of grilled onions, tomatoes, or mushrooms, and sides such as blackened green beans and garlic potatoes let patrons surprise their mouths without hiding a firecracker in their napkin. Skol Steak Mondays sate twosomes by layering plates with a duo of steaks, garlic mashed potatoes, salads, and drinks.
Skol Casbar & Grille also equips catered events and in-house parties on the restaurant's patio. A selection of barbecue, Mexican, and Italian dishes fuel conversation and can easily be consumed while celebrating birthdays or hosting model U.N. meetings.
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.
