Before sports bars, the only place to view eight games simultaneously was inside the brain of a spider. Achieve octovision with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Wallaby's Bar and Grille in Ames.
Wallaby's sports-centric atmosphere lures revelers with big-game broadcasts, daily drink specials, and an upscale pub-grub menu, which has led to a 10-time ranking as the Best Sports Bar in Story County by the Ames Tribune. Under the luminous glow of 34 sports-beaming televisions, kick off a meal with a group of friends or pet footballs by savoring a single order of ISU State Flappers, classic wings served in a choice of sauces including sweet asian chile, buffalo garlic, and inferno ($5.99 for 6 or $10.99 for 12). Open-faced Wallaby burgers use mushroom-and-marsala-wine sauce to incite incisors ($8.49), and the Wally dip's sliced roast beef and cup of creamy au jus provide fuel for choreographed homerun celebrations ($8.79). To quell inland blues, treat taste buds to underwater treasures, such as the grilled Atlantic salmon or the Cajun ahi tuna ($9.99 for each).
Wallaby Bar and Grille's inviting atmosphere, adorned with vintage athletic paraphernalia, vaulted ceilings, and all-weather fans, makes an ideal vantage point for games aired on the MLB Network, NFL Sunday Ticket, ESPN, and more. From a spacious wood table, chat with a friendly server about the trophy-adorned bar, or finish an ice-cold draught before thumb wrestling a to-go box for any leftover entrees.
