Before sports bars, the only place to view eight games simultaneously was inside the brain of a spider. Achieve octovision with today's deal: for $12, you get $25 worth of pub grub and drinks at Sports on Tap.
Touting 70 televisions, including two 168” big-screen editions, Sports on Tap maximizes game-day viewing, while their indoor golf simulators, live thoroughbred race wagering, Buzztime Trivia, foosball, video lottery terminals, and billiards tables make the Lorne Avenue restaurant and bar a sportsman’s super bowl. While working up an athlete’s appetite, starters like piggy fries (pork tenderloin covered in seasoned batter, $12) and classic poutine ($10) will get diners through to half-time. Main menu items such as one pound of wings ($12) or one pound of bone-in-ribs ($12) can make a bee line to your mouth, coated in one of 24 different sauces including Caribbean jerk, honey hot, suicide, salt and pepper, or plum. The 8 oz. steak sandwich ($13), a flat-iron steak served on garlic toast with choice of rub, is a meal fit for a medalist while the build-a-burger ($8+) or build-a-pizza ($9+) options could feed a professional rugby team with endless hearty combinations. Sports on Tap's jovial atmosphere channels the spirit of a communal man cave, even as it caters to sports-averse foodie friends who tagged along just for a taste.
