Buffalo is the only word that, without conjugation, represents all major parts of speech: noun, proper noun, verb, and sauce. Ace ambrosial English exams with today's Groupon: for $15, you get an appetizer of wings and $30 worth of lunch or dinner at Sportsman's Lodge (a $35.95 value).
Sportsman's Lodge radiates with the glow of 20 flat-screen TVs as its wait staff serves up over 100 beer selections and addictive America bar fare that won the restaurant the title of 2010’s Best Sports Bar in the Jackson Free Press readers’ poll. Diners can nosh on six of the best wings in town, as voted by 93.9 radio listeners, tossed in one of seven sauces, including jamaican jerk, sweet chili, or lemon-rosemary garlic. Lunch specials, such as Tuesday's barbecue grilled or fried pork chop or Wednesday's country-fried steak, form a powerful hunger-stomping quintet with a choice of three sides and a cookie ($7.95). Handheld options, including burgers, po boys, or one of 10 foot-long hot dogs, bolster taste-bud-maddening garnishes named after pro stadiums ranging from traditional mustard to barbecue shrimp and salsa ($7.50+). Meat treats enjoy being nibbled away inside the restaurant's dining room under the watchful eyes of the wall-mounted blue marlin, deer bust, and teardrop snowshoes, or outside on Sportsman’s Lodge's new deck, weather permitting. After satisfying comfort-food cravings, sportsmanly diners perform like forthright log-tossing gold medalists during rounds of shuffleboard and billiards.
