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 $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare at Stan's Sports Bar in the Bronx. This deal is not valid toward alcohol.
Huddled behind the bleachers of Yankee Stadium, Stan's Sports Bar is a landmark tribute to all things Yankee, serving up traditional American fare beneath the approving glances of the baseball legends pictured on its walls. The menu of hearty handhelds such as hot roast-beef, pastrami, and corned-beef sandwiches ($13) fuels the necessary ab muscles for cheering for the Yankees and Bronx-cheering for all other teams. Flocks of fans looking to save their main appetites for stadium snacks can share several appetizers, including jalapeño poppers ($7.50), potato knish ($4.25), and a basket of popcorn shrimp ($12), chased with Stan's new grilled-chicken cheesesteak sandwich ($11.50). For a more out-of-town treat, try a classic Chicago-style hot dog, which is topped with mustard, onions, tomato, relish, pickles, and the salty tears of anguished Cubs fans (traditionally served in place of ketchup) ($10).
Five televisions mount Stan's walls and project the games as fans color-commentate from old-fashioned wooden bleacher seats painted Yankee blue and white. While waiting for your orders or during the ritual seventh-inning stretch and Red Sox fan sacrifice, take a moment to admire Stan's endless array of baseball-themed memorabilia, including posters, baseball cards, and classic photos of legendary players. Stan's also has a shop selling men's and women's souvenirs, and its menu includes calorie breakdowns for all items, making this the go-to sports bar for waist-watching baseball superfans looking to fit back into their skinny pinstripes.
Stan's is only open during baseball games, football games, and concerts.
