Best Of 2015: Neighborhood Bar: North

It can be a hell of a trek from Briargate to downtown just to catch some live music and share a drink or two. Fortunately for the northerners among us, there's the Back East Bar & Grill. (And for the northern northerners among us, Back East's new Monument location.) Convert your Friday night cab fare into tasty food, cold beers and live music right in your own backyard. And if you think "Back East" is just a moniker, find yourself pleasantly proven wrong when you discover the many pizzas, Philly cheese steaks and other East Coast favorites. — Bridgett Harris

Best Of 2013: Neighborhood Bar: North

This place serves up burgers, wraps, wings and brews to a large and growing customer base. Mike Davis is thankful for his loyal customers, which is what makes his place what it is — a real neighborhood bar and grill. Bands on weekends, poker on Tuesdays and trivia on Wednesdays are standard for most bar and grill places, but part of the draw here is the food, which is not normal bar food. "We serve the kind of food we would like, in the way we would expect it to be served to us," Davis says. "It's food that you want."— Bret Wright

Bites 2012

Our readers' favorite north-side neighborhood bar, this is your spot for game day, or any day you're in need of a pint and food ranging from New York-style pizza, burgers and pastas to a Philly steak hoagie, wings, salads and cinnamon-sugar-sprinkled sweet-potato puffs.
