Cheering on a sports team is more effective than cheering for the protagonist of a novel and more acceptable than cheering for one side in the courtroom. Carouse in an appropriate setting with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare and drinks at Mulligan’s in Midlothian.
Mulligan’s 52 flat-screen TVs, 108-inch projection screen, and full bar set a sudsy, sports-circled backdrop for classic American dining. Pair one of 40 beers with one of the burgers to enjoy a game with the Babe Ruth, 6 ounces of beef on a kaiser roll ($6.89), or the Michael Jordan, a 12-ounce patty topped with chili, jalapeños, and mixed cheese ($8.99), both served with seasoned fries. On the menu built by Mulligan's executive chef, traditional dinner entrees draw delicious inspiration from across America, with St. Louis–style pork slathered in Jack Daniels honey-barbecue sauce to fill out a full Rusty's rack o' ribs, ($18.99), and Fernando's fajitas sating Southwestern appetites with beef or chicken, tri-colored peppers, onions, and flour tortillas ($13.99).
Along with the booth-mounted 56-inch TVs and free WiFi, Mulligan's hosts a range of events, such as karaoke, poker, live music, and trivia on set days. Seven pool tables, two dartboards, and a battery of video games foster friendly competition or hostile teamwork daily.
Mulligan’s Sports Grille
Mulligan's Sports Grille is a veritable playground for grown-ups. The bar puts the emphasis squarely on creating a party atmosphere with themed events such as an annual St. Patty's Day shindig. And they keep the fun going all-year around with pool tables, dart boards, and plenty of TVs beaming in sports. On select nights, musicians take the stage and entertain the crowd with live music. Alternatively, karaoke events allow patrons to showcase their talents by belting out popular tunes or the first 10,000 digits of pi. Cold beers, more than 10 types of burgers, and classic bar food, such as nachos and jumbo wings that range from Mild to Death Wish keep patrons fueled up—which comes in handy during trivia contests or poker tournaments.
