Sports bars earn their name not only by proudly displaying collegiate-football decorations, but also by serving ample amounts of fare and beer to underprivileged pro athletes. Contribute to sports bars' noble mission with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of American fare at American Classic Tavern in Lawrenceville.
Specializing in modern comfort fare and a rotating selection of seasonal craft beers, American Classic Tavern welcomes revelers to feast in its newly renovated space. Eyes will be overcome with joy as they dance across 40 sport-showcasing flat screens, and mouths will cheer at the taste of barbecue-sauce-laden pulled-pork pizza sprinkled with cheddar cheese and red onion ($9.99 for a 12"). Half-pound Angus beef burgers bear country-fried pickle laurels and traditional Cajun remoulade robes ($6.99), and Boston dogs ($2.99), like most mountain hermits, are found slathered in baked beans and sauerkraut. Diners can consume grilled shrimp in creamy grits ($8.99) on the outdoor patio, the smoking-friendly indoor patio, or tables by the bar. Nightly events include Thursday team trivia and live musical acts on Friday, and everyday games of billiards and darts build the hand-eye coordination needed to fling grits into the earlobes of diners 20 feet away.
A perimeter of brick walls and flat-screen TVs envelops AC Tavern, where seasonal craft beers wash down a menu of Southern-inspired pub fare and events busy guests with poker, karaoke, and football. In the kitchen, chefs lightly fry catfish morsels and layer them onto plates alone or stuff them into po boys flanked by Cajun tartar dipping sauce. The texas brisket pizza joins two hearty staples as jalapeños and onions top texas brisket, coated in the same root-beer barbecue sauce that also drenches a half or full rack of slow-smoked but fast-talking St. Louis–style ribs. Every day of the week, diners can pair their feasts with diversions, including live music on Fridays and college football on Sundays.
