There are dartboards and pool tables aplenty inside J.P's, a down-to-earth sports bar with a model pub menu. Chase your game with a sourdough BLT or a thin-crust pizza with five kinds of meat. Or, pig out on pork wings and a big plate of nachos supreme. Chicken sandwiches get their own category here; you'll find six varieties, including grilled chicken, grilled blackened chicken, and you know what, I could really go for some grilled chicken. If the weather's fair, head outside to the beer garden for the alfresco version of J.P's.
Ten flat-screen televisions play sports, sports, and more sports inside Texas Smokehouse and Saloon, and on select nights, the bar treats patrons to live musical acts and haiku readings. Drinks pair with chicken and beef sandwiches and soft pretzels brushed with a Budweiser and garlic-herb seasoning.
Kimcheese serves each order of Asian-Mexican fusion food under the guiding principle that fresh, handmade food makes for better a meal. The Korean barbecue burgers, tacos, and burritos are filled with hearty ribeye beef marinated in a house sauce. And the fixings receive the same care and consideration: The staff makes pico de gallo in-house, heats tortillas, and slices up fresh vegetables twice per day.
At DeCarlo's Bar and Grill, chefs take an innovative approach to burger making. Rather than piling toppings on the outside of the burger, they stuff flavorful ingredients—such as pepper jack cheese, bacon, or jalapenos—directly between two quarter-pound patties. These signature burgers ooze juicy fillings and gossip with every bite, and they star on a menu of pub fare also populated by hearty sandwiches, fried appetizers, customized pizzas, and a variety of draft beers and cocktails.
Metromix called Brewskeez "a happening place." It’s not hard to see why. The O'Fallon pub broadcasts sports games from nine televisions and two large projectors while bartenders pour drinks. In the kitchen, cooks grill brioche rolls to cradle burgers and load thin-crust pizzas with savory toppings. Patrons can send glossy balls careening across pool tables, listen to live music, and aim darts or sharpened silverware at bull's-eyes. Though Brewskeez's interior is smoke-free, its outdoor patio accommodates smokers.
To accompany a menu that sates appetites with hearty pub eats, including their popular $0.99 burgers, The Babylon houses more than 20 whistle-wetting draft beers. Patrons may also reserve a party room for free and come in on Saturdays for live musical performances.
