Since 1989, Sneaky Pete's has been a self-described destination for "the young and the ageless." A place to eat, drink, party by a pool, play volleyball in the sand, and park your boat, Pete's offers lots of amenities that make for a fun-filled experience. And that's not even including happy hour and frequent events such as live music from popular cover bands. From the menu, order up pizzas or bacon cheeseburgers, and grab drinks from the bar before heading out to the huge outdoor deck to catch some rays or glare at the sun until it stops shining.
For more than a decade, The Varsity Roadhouse has kept appetites at bay with burgers, sandwiches, and of course, wings. The restaurant's signature wings arrive at tables hot and slathered with 10 different sauces, including smokey barbecue and garlic parmesan. While chowing down and composing a list of reasons why wing-eating should be an Olympic event, guests can lose themselves in the 160-inch HD projector screens beaming the day's sports games. Meanwhile, kids have it made at Varsity, too: they can win prizes in the game room, and they eat for free Monday?Wednesday.
Sports fans won’t miss a play if they head to Red Dog Right to watch games. The restaurant plays every one of the Texas team's match-ups, fueling the festivities with a menu of game-ready eats. Chefs pile toppings such as grilled maple ham, smoked gouda, and sweet pineapple onto pizzas and stuff flour-tortilla pockets with cheddar and hamburger, giving quesadillas a hometown spin. They also toss wings with sweet Coca-Cola bacon BBQ sauce or ultra-hot ring of fire sauce. Events and specials change monthly, but guests can usually expect happy hours with discounted wings and complimentary popcorn.
Athletes dunk, dart from first to second base, and dribble down soccer fields at The Labb, yet the eatery has no sporting equipment. Instead, athletes can be seen competing on the bar’s high-definition TVs, and onlookers nosh on hearty sandwiches, hot dogs, and helpings of Frito pie. The Labb’s sandwiches range from the Cuban—stuffed to the brim with pork loin, ham, and Swiss cheese—to a reinterpretation of the BLT with turkey and avocado. Meanwhile, hot dogs come with eclectic toppings, such as chili, pico de gallo, avocado, blue cheese, and sprinkles.
PourHouse Grill is all about watching sports. The interior dedicates 17 flat-screen TVs to showcasing all major athletic events, and even offers a private business room with theater-style seating and a 12-foot jumbo screen. Alternatively, the outdoor patio, visible through windows that span almost from the floor to the ceiling, invites diners to settle in at wrought-iron tables and gaze upon picturesque views of Unicorn Lake instead of a TV.
Of course, PourHouse's menu offers a food lineup as deep as its TV selection, with a salvo of noshables that pair well with any great game. It starts with buffalo-wing appetizers classed up with one of six levels of spiciness?from a sweet teriyaki to a classic spicy buffalo sauce. Beyond wings, the menu catalogs never-frozen burgers refined with slices of avocado or saut?ed mushrooms. PourHouse also serves an original rotisserie-cooked chicken, which, like the loser of a good TV cooking competition, is marinated in olive oil and spiced with a dash of curry.
A spacious and casual gathering spot, Big Shots Sports Caf? is where visitors can stretch out, watch the game, and have a burger and beer. The staff will also agree that it?s the kind of place supposed founder Millard P. Foonswaggle would have enjoyed, kicking back after wrestling pythons and generally living on the edge. Inside, patrons sidle up to the bar for a frozen margarita or relax in a booth with an appetizer platter piled with onion strings, buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks, pickle chips, fries, and fried jalape?os. Stop in on Wednesday, Saturday, or Sunday nights for games of Texas hold?em or Friday evenings for live music.
