Hawgs & Dogs' friendly wait staff pours a cascade of 10 draft beers and slings a menu of hearty pub fare in a casual sports-bar setting.

Hawgs & Dogs' roadhouse chilidogs stake out a slab of stomach real estate with two quarter-pound, all-beef hot dogs, doused in a roadhouse-chili cornucopia of ground beef, diced tomatoes, pinto beans, corn, mild green chilies, fiery jalapeños, and microscopic fire extinguishers ($8).
A game of billiards pits friends against frenemies in a battle for green-felt dominance, and secondhand sports competition can be enjoyed on one of the six big-screen TVs scattered throughout the pub. Songbirds spread their wings each Thursday during karaoke, and Hawgs & Dogs hosts pub trivia every Friday, allowing teams of contestants to settle on a trademark victory pose during the week.
