The sports bar has had more enduring success than bar sports, which have been officially banned from the Olympics for more than a year. Indulge your sporting and eating fancies with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of food and drinks at First Down Sports Bar & Grill, conveniently located in the heart of Ballston.
First Down’s menu has an impressive selection of appetizers, including spinach queso dip with sour cream ($6.99) and loaded fries with chili, cheese, and bacon ($6.99). Create your own burger ($7.99+), or allow someone else the honors and go with the sautéed-mushroom Swiss burger ($7.99) or the veggie ($7.99). With a wide selection of wraps ($7.99), sandwiches ($3.99–$9.99), pizzas ($9.99–$14.99), and entrees—including the sizzling jerk chicken with spicy ranch ($12.99)—there is something for every taste.
If you prefer to watch sports live on TV rather than having friends reenact highlights the next day using finger puppets and high-pitched voices, you can make use of First Down Sports Bar’s 20 huge, high-definition, flat-screen televisions; if not, wait for tomorrow’s reenactments while you relax in the game room, which features video games, foosball, and shuffleboard.

- First Down is very much a neighborhood sports bar: suits and baseball caps mix at happy hour, and the ages range from 20s to 50s and beyond. There's a good mix of women and men, too. As soon as you walk in the door, you'll see the framed Chris Cooley, Sean Taylor, Gilbert Arenas and Caron Butler and the large Redskins logo painted on the dark red walls. – Fritz Hahn, Washington Post
- This place is great, I come here every Sunday and watch football. They have nice plasma, HD TVs and a lot of them. The food is solid, the servers are friendly and cute. The atmosphere is comfortable and cozy. The food is just a little bit pricey, not to [sic] bad though. – Thomas H., Yelp
- The wings were juicy and delicious, fried to perfection, and neither under nor overcooked. They have 20 sauces to choose from. I tried hot, madness, and cajun, and all were finger-lickin' tasty; I will for sure be back to try the others. – Jake S., Yelp
- Cheap beer, cheap good food and sauce selection for wings…Watch out for the Fire sauce it's HOT!!! – Jay, Urbanspoon
