One of the biggest party days of the year is Super Bowl Sunday and many will leave the cozy confines of home to revel with fellow football fans. What makes a great place to watch the game? There have to be plenty of TVs—the larger the better—good food and plenty of drink options. The following establishments more than meet the criteria.
No Frills Grill & Sports Bar
With five different locations (Fort Worth, Burleson, Arlington, Mansfield and Keller) and 100 high-definition televisions at each, No Frills fits the bill as a prime place to watch the game. Throw in a wide array of food choices from pub fare to seafood entrees, 24 brews on-tap and a full-service bar, why would you stay away?
What better place to watch the game with hundreds of your closest friends than Live! Arena, less than a mile from AT&T Stadium. This multilevel behemoth features a 100-foot LED high-definition TV, making it impossible to have a bad vantage point. The Big Game Bash extravaganza begins at 4 pm Super Sunday, with an emcee directing the show, including games, giveaways and more.
The Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill
Now with two locations at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving and in Glade Parks in Euless, The Thirsty Lion has multiple beers on tap, a wide selection of liquor and an eclectic menu to satisfy any taste; more importantly, the TVs cover all angles of the restaurant so there’s not a bad seat in the house. On Feb. 3, it will be happy hour all game with $1 off drafts, $4.95 for well drinks, house wine and margaritas, with food running $4.95-$6.95.
Christie's Sports Bar and Grill
Grab a group and head to Uptown's home to the NFL playoffs to catch the action one last time on one of 62 high-definition TVs or any of the three 120-inch projector screens. There's delicious bar food and plenty of beer and liquor to round out the perfect trifecta. Game day specials and packages available.
Beginning at 4:30 pm, Happiest Hour's Big Game Watch Party kicks off. Watch the game on one of 25 huge flat screens, get $5 off on Team Happytizers and take advantage of beer specials and more. For $35, head to the covered rooftop patio for a living room-style experience while chowing down on an all-you-can-eat buffet.
Press Box Grill
The self-proclaimed casual sports bar draws attention with its 112-inch high-definition TV, in addition to 16 more flat screens. The selection of 36 beers on tap—24 of which are dedicated to local Texas brews—will be just $4.
Buffalo Joe’s Grill & Bar
L.A. Rams fans enter this bar forewarned: this is Patriots territory. The New England Patriots Fans of Dallas, with more than 700 members, calls Buffalo Joe's home, cheering on their team's every play on 10, 50-inch plasma TVs and four high-definition big screens. Food is available and friendly trash talk is expected.
