Unlike NASA control centers, sports bars encourage those present to cheer every time sirens go off. Dine amid a din with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare at Sneaker's Sports Bar & Grill in Franklin Park.
Sneaker's Sports Bar & Grill placates palates with a menu of made-from-scratch gustatory classics served in an athletics-centric atmosphere. Chefs slather disks of dough made fresh daily with homemade alfredo sauce and heaping handfuls of grilled chicken and Canadian bacon to concoct the 14-inch chicken alfredo pizza ($17.75). Twelve ounces of chopped, charbroiled sirloin get trapped between two pieces of toasted sourdough—like tourists visiting San Francisco for the first time—and festooned with mushrooms, grilled onions, and cheddar to create the Big Daddy burger ($8.95), and an array of sandwiches ($5.95+) similarly separate their star-crossed slices of bread with meaty and meatless fillings. Fillets of Icelandic cod join fries in a hot-oil jacuzzi after lounging in tavern batter, forming platefuls of fish and chips ($9.95), and orders of chicken wings arrive marinated, fried, and sporting one of three saucy coatings ($7.50/10).
Sneaker's welcomes revelry inside its doors and bedecks its vibrantly colored walls with sports photographs and 42 LCD TVs tuned to athletic spectacles. The spacious interior brims with pool tables, darts, and arcade games, basting eardrums with the dulcet tones of karaoke on Tuesday and the aural art of live DJs on Saturday. Patrons can also gravitate toward the outdoor beer garden and enjoy unparalleled views of the world's first carbonated flowers.
