Sports bars intimately weave athleticism and cuisine, much like a potato-powered treadmill or a ham thrown in a perfect spiral. Sup sportily with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $24 worth of steaks, sandwiches, and eclectic entrees at Shevy's Sports and Steaks in Elkhorn.
Shevy's Sports and Steaks' servers usher Angus beef steaks and burgers through five spacious dining areas bedecked in sports photographs and memorabilia. A brimming menu twirls an appetizing kaleidoscope of carnivore-pleasers, including a 16-ounce rib eye ($18.99). Thick burgers, such as the Cajun-kissed blackened Shirt burger ($7.99), parade meaty flavor and, unlike an ice sculpture of Barry Manilow, have never been frozen. Munch on hearty handheld comestibles, including the walleye sandwich ($8.49) or shaved prime rib buttressed by sourdough bread ($8.99). A grilled, fried, or scampi-style shrimp dinner ($13.99) grants diners the chance to direct a feast as unique as the fingerprint of an Oompa Loompa.
Intercept sports broadcasts on flat-screen TVs in Shevy's sleek bar or brush up on football trivia in the Heisman lounge, whose walls are lined with photos and memorabilia from nearly every Heisman winner. The restaurant pulses with DJs and karaoke weekly, and guests can sup al fresco while admiring cumulus clouds' offensive-tackle strategy on the sprawling paver patio.
Shevy's Sports and Steaks
The chefs of Shevy's Sports and Steaks simmer slow-roasted prime rib in the kitchen, and the restaurant's five dining areas steep patrons in sports nostalgia. In the Heisman Lounge, photos of all the Heisman Trophy winners smile upon servers as they Hail Mary menu items, such as chicken-fried steak, onto diners' tables. Classic baseball memorabilia crowds the walls of a rustic-style dining room, and outside on a 750-square-foot paved patio, guests sit beside a bustling downtown street as they decide what toppings to draft for their custom Black Angus burgers. Throughout the restaurant, high-definition televisions broadcast games available through NFL and MLB packages, as well as all Nebraska pay-per-view football games and checkers matches.
