Among places to bandy about sports, bars are more appropriate than supermarket bins filled with basketballs or the ref’s son's birthday party. Put sportpinions in the proper venue with today's Groupon to Fatso’s Sports Garden on Bandera Road. Choose between the following options:

At Fatso’s Sports Garden, fans cheer at blaring screens while sandwiches and meaty meals make it from the menu to the goal. The beef burger sliders, made from 100% Angus, come topped with onions, pickles, and tomato. To accompany these Smurf-sized meat towers, cooks season and fry skin-on fries and dip onion slices in beer batter to fry them to crispy brown rings, exactly unlike the rings of Saturn during an eclipse. If you opt for anything on the menu, your incisors can tear into pub grub such as the southwest burger, which mimics the colors of the desert with a chunky combination of salsa, sautéed onions, mushrooms, and melted cheddar cheese, or barbecue favorites such as a half rack of slow-smoked baby back ribs.
On game days, sports beam from big-screen TVs and the sounds of cheering and jeering fill Fatso’s interior as well as its outdoor patio. Other nights, Fatso’s hosts games of pool and sand volleyball. Karaoke events give patrons the chance to belt out, on stage, renditions of "Achy Breaky Heart" or the truth about their neighbor’s second navel.
Fatso's Sports Garden
Since 1987, Fatso's Sports Garden’s roster of chefs have been slow cooking meats with passion and precision–they mesquite-smoke their brisket for 12 hours and dish out racks of savory baby-back ribs that slide off the bone. Housemade sides and sauces are crafted fresh daily, and 22 beers on tap fill frosty glasses that frequently clink after touchdowns, homeruns, and slam dunks flicker across satellite-equipped TVs lining the restaurant's walls. Outside, a playground beckons youngsters, while grains of sand and old blueprints for Victorian-era sand mansions kick up across six outdoor volleyball courts.
