Top Ten Broward-Palm Beach Sports Bars to Watch Football In
|Po' boys and pigskin -- a great combo.|
Wowies Sports Grill - Do you love the bawdy locker-room vibe at Hooters but wonder why beautiful girls subject themselves to the garish orange getup, with support hose and high-top sneaks? (Hint: student loans) If so, then head to this sexy sports bar, where the dress code is often as hot as the wings coming out of the kitchen. With a staff decked out in corsets and short-shorts, you'd think the food was an afterthought -- but the menu is surprisingly lengthy, with dishes like chicken bruschetta, Gorgonzola-topped steak panini, steamed mussels, handmade zeppole dusted with powdered sugar, and a host of other inventive sandwiches and salads.
Yard House - Here's a rollicking spot for beer lovers. The chain restaurant from California, named for the yard-high glass originally created to serve stagecoach drivers, spurts more than 200 beers on tap -- the main draw. A unique system of chilled taps that run in long lines to the keg room keeps beers fresh and tasty -- and with a sampler option, hop-heads can try several at a sitting. The huge island bar with stools in the center of the room parallels the open kitchen, where American fusion dishes fly out the service windows. It's a busy, lively spot in the Downtown at the Gardens mall, with classic rock on the speakers day and night. A late-night in-the-biz crowd comes for an after-shift brew. Moviegoers and families can be found at early hours, noshing on burgers (don't miss the béarnaise sliders), sandwiches, personal pizzas, and a good salad selection. Even the kids' menu has healthful sides such as jasmine rice or a green salad. A special "gluten sensitive" menu also is available. It's value-priced too -- the reason you see so many regulars here.
