Best Of 2015: Bang-for-Your-Buck Bar
Best Of 2015: Neighborhood Bar: Central
The bar seems to stretch for miles — and so does your dollar — at Tony's, which offers a plethora of drink specials that will please even the most budget-conscious patron. And while it may be the Springs' favorite college bar, you'll also find your fair share of locals sipping beers and cheering on their favorite teams. Pair your tall-boy-and-shot combo with Tony's famous cheese curds and settle in to watch a game, shoot some pool, or chat up a friendly neighbor on the next stool over. — Bridgett Harris
Best Of 2011: Wait Staff
On an average weekend, one Texas Roadhouse store serves up around 2,000 steaks. Each one is cut and prepared in-house, then seared to lock in flavor before it's roasted on an open flame, says kitchen manager Jeff Hill. Almost everything is made from scratch, including that yummy cinnamon butter served with those delicious rolls. (They make more than 14,000 rolls in a weekend.) For those rare times you're not in the mood for beef, you can choose from loads of chicken dishes, mouth-watering ribs and even some seafood. For kicks, Texas Roadhouse throws in friendly service, $2.50 margarita Wednesdays and a floor you can cover in peanut shells.
