Whether they’re hungry for the crack of the bat, the snap of the shoulderpads, or the swish of the net, sports fans flock to The Stadium Grill & Bar whenever a big game beckons. There, multiple televisions broadcast major matches from across the sporting world while the kitchen's grill sizzles away at tender morsels of chicken or brisket slathered in Cookie's Sweet Hickory BBQ sauce. The bar's burgers come covered in gourmet toppings such as bacon, sautéed mushrooms, or a handful of smaller burgers. Baskets of wings challenge taste buds with six different hot-to-not flavors that are easily washed down with bottles of Coors, Newcastle, or Sierra Nevada. The bar doesn't just serve beer, though. Exotic shots mimic famous flavors, such as oatmeal cookies or girl scout cookies, and ursus Icelandic vodka turns fruit punch and sodas into international concoctions.
The hamburger helmsmen at Fuddruckers compile a menu of handcrafted burgers from 100% American beef and homemade buns. Carnivorous connoisseurs choose a burger made from one-third of a pound ($4.79) to a full pound ($8.29) of free-range beef. Seduce experimental taste buds or the ghost of William Cody with a buffalo burger ($7.99), ostrich burger ($7.99), or veggie burger ($5.59).
Once grilled and set on a freshly baked bun, the patty buckles under a selection from the market-fresh produce bar, replete with the usual burger accouterments as well as warm cheese sauce, gold-flecked pickles, grilled onions ($0.75), and guacamole ($1.00). Those who prefer to leave the gustatory designing to the professionals can order a specialty burger (additional $1) such as the bacon- and mushroom-bestrewn Works burger or a Black & Bleu burger, sprinkled with blue cheese, layered with bacon, and roughed up with sucker punches.
