Re: “1st & 10 Sports Bar & Grill

Cheap booze, nice staff. Usually close to empty though. This is great for a friendly social time but not a good place to looking for a new spouse.

Re: “Stadium Bar and Grill

This is the closest sports bar to my house; the wife and I enjoy going here for the occasional beer and lunch/dinner. The only other options around here are large chains; at least for the Cimarron Hills neighborhood. (Rock Bottom and Old Chicago come to mind.)

This is actually a cute sports bar and the food is decent. A 25oz Guinness set me back $6.99 which I felt was a tad bit pricey, but the pours were excellent and the beer fresh. The food prices were good; I had a decent-sized wrap and a cup of some very tasty chicken-tortilla soup for about $10.

So... obviously the profit margin here is made on alcohol, not food. ;) This is true for many restaurants, though.

A few stand-outs - the Buffalo-chicken wrap with fresh carrots and celery as well as the spicy burger (Dynamite burger, or something like that I believe) are very tasty.

The atmosphere is loud and kid friendly, so don't expect this to be a "quiet date night" kinda place. It's a place to bring the kids, have a beer, and watch some sports - with good food and decent if slightly expensive drinks.

Re: “Keg Lounge

I've been frequenting the Keg for over 20 years and I have always had a enjoyable time and been treated in a friendly and courteous fashion. It is normally filled with local folks, relaxing and having a good time with friends. The food and beverages are GOOD and there is a nice variety to boot. The Keg is a classic Manitou neighborhood hangout!

Re: “Wyatt’s Pub & Grill

In the last week we have eaten here 4 times! Once was take out pizza and the rest was dine in. Everything i have had has been spot on and just flat out good food and plenty of it. The staff is very friendly and there is always someone checking on you to see if you need your drink refilled or anything else for that matter.

Re: “Jack Quinn's Irish Alehouse & Pub

Jack Quinn's is great Most of the time. The food is pretty consistently good. The Sunday brunch there is the best! I used to go every week for the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz, but got frustrated with the sound quality of the speakers (only hearing every 3rd word during a quiz is annoying) and stopped going. I like their live music, but its always too loud for the space they are in. If they get the speaker system fixed they would definitely be a 5 star place.

Re: “Oscar's Tejon Street

Love the atmosphere. Very Southern. Food is pretty good. Great drink specials and occasional live music. Shrimp poboys and oysters is what I recommend

Re: “Meadow Muffins

Go in the afternoon and take time to look around. It won't be so noisy and you can have a relaxed time. The food is pretty good too.

Re: “McCabe's Tavern

Great open space, attentive staff, GREEN biz and yummy, yummy menu. Try the hot chicken salad (hot wings style fried chicken breast on greens LOADED with bleu cheese) or the Ploughman's Lunch (a traditional Irish plate of cold meats, cheeses, olives, garlic, veggies, etc served with breads). Oh yeah, there are the fries with curry dip. Trust me, come hungry.

Re: “Thunder & Buttons II

Fun bar for Sunday football games and other weekend sports. Truly great brunch and lunch menu. A mix of traditional bar options plus hearty homestyle pot roast, bison and elk options -- plus yummy, unique salads. Really good bartender (Lindsey) and servers. Attentive, friendly and fast.
