When it comes to food and sports, it's hard to think of an area that Lu's Sports Bar & Lounge doesn't have covered. The night's biggest games and cutest team huddles not only flicker across the bar's massive 82-inch flat-screen, but also its eight 52-inch high-definition TVs. Those, in turn, surround Lu's potpourri of gaming stations: pinball machines, air hockey tables, dartboards, pool tables, and a shuffleboard court to top it all off.
Other gaming opportunities, such as video poker machines, await in Lu's lounge, which is equipped with its very own bar backed by more flat-screens. The main screens here, however, are dedicated to karaoke, which takes place every night.
Both bar and lounge stay open until 2:30 a.m. nightly, and accommodate patrons as they savor the mix of Chinese classics and American comfort food that emerges from Lu's kitchen. The menu mixes eastern dishes such as Szechwan shrimp with western staples including wings served dry or tossed in a choice of four sauces.
You'd never spot a cook uncapping a bottle of store-bought salsa or a robot frying up pork carnitas in the kitchen at El Guajillo Mexican Restaurant Bar & Grill. The chefs at this family-owned eatery insist on making their sauces and Mexican specialties themselves, from the pico de gallo to the crispy tortilla chips. When they're not chopping up fresh veggies for these house-made delicacies, they're folding fresh meats and veggies into enchiladas, burritos, and tortas, as well as showering tamales in red and green salsas. These versatile kitchen staffers also extend their culinary expertise towards pizzas, topping pies with homemade tomato sauce and specialty ingredients. To complement the diverse menu, the restaurant's bartenders blend a selection of tangy margaritas and fruity cocktails.

Each visit to Voicebox is an opportunity to try something new. Maybe it's belting out a random selection from the 12,000-title song list, which contains music in English, Spanish, Thai, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, and Taiwanese. Or maybe it's taking on the role of a backup dancer, a tambourine player, or a co-headliner who grabs a second microphone to share the spotlight. All of these scenarios unfold behind the closed doors of private karaoke suites, where friends can gather around the TV and make their song selections using Voicebox's custom remotes or a proprietary smartphone app.
Besides the music, both Portland locations feature onsite kitchens that cook up fresh Asian cuisine. Specialties range from pork meatball bahn mi to Thai chicken pita pizza, which doubles as a great vocal warmup when said aloud. Local beers and sake cocktails complement the food.
