Before sports bars, the only place to view eight games simultaneously was inside the brain of a spider. Achieve octovision with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of classic American fare and drinks at Mackey's American Pub in Manassas.
Mackey's menu slings up hearty helpings of hand-cut steaks, seafood, and pub favorites, reinforced by liberally poured brews and 12 eye-catching HD televisions. Savor sauce-slathered or dry-spiced wings ($8.49 for 10 pieces), or flex a dipping muscle with the crab dip, a bread bowl heaped with creamy lump and black-fin crab ($8.26). Main-event eats include sandwiches, such as Mackey's hamburger, which can be artfully arsenaled with your choice of toppings ($6.88 plus $0.69 per topping), and the grilled rainbow trout accents its kaleidoscopic taste with a citrus salsa, a choice of two sides, and worldwide approval from pescetarian leprechauns ($12.84).
Checkered tablecloths, spacious booths, and a designated smoke-free area make Mackey’s upstairs dining room the perfect place to enjoy a meal with the whole family, and the downstairs pub welcomes smokers and magicians' assistants to puff and vaporize in peace while watching the big game. Wash down a well drink with a round of darts or karaoke, or play bar pong (Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 10 p.m.) to participate in spirited sporting that doesn't involve leapfrogging over unsuspecting barbacks.
Nine Yelpers give Mackey's American Pub an average of 3.5 stars:
Mackey's American Pub
From the long wooden bar at Mackey's American Pub, you can catch a sporting event, some karaoke, or even live music. But even without these draws, crowds would come simply for the pub eats: ribeye steaks glazed in bourbon, crab cake dinners, and burgers served with sauteed mushrooms on a bagel bun. Smoking is allowed on the first floor, though the second-floor stays smoke-free.
