The term "couch potato" usually applies to lazy people, a description that doesn’t at all befit The Couch's executive chef, who hustles to to his own culinary play calls nightly. To create the bar's couch potatoes, he hand-cuts housemade french fries every day, serving them plain or tossed in a choice of six zesty seasonings. His other elevated bar fare demands a similar level of dedication, from housemade soups to sandwich meats slow roasted in-house, such as barbecue pulled pork and roast beef.
True to its name, The Couch––founded by local Del campo graduates and high school sweethearts, along with their close friend––houses plenty of couches to lounge on, as well as tranquil patio seating. Throughout each feast, nine flat-screen TVs and and two 106-inch projector screens broadcast the latest sports, from baseball in the summer to polar bears playing baseball in the winter. Besides sports, The Couch's weekly entertainment lineup includes karaoke every Wednesday and live music every Saturday night.
