This is an important decision, folks. I mean, it’s not as if the Rangers are in the World Series every other year or anything. Obviously the best place to watch the game would be in the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. But if you’re like me and can’t afford to shell out basically a mortgage payment (or nearly so) for tickets to see it up close and personal, Grapevine does have a nice variety of sports bars to choose from.
Buffalo Wild Wings – In my opinion, one of the best choices. However, that is its drawback – it’s everyone’s favorite and on big game days the place is packed, to put it mildly. However, it’s fairly cheap and there is a nice variety of food and drinks. They have free wifi as well if you want to geek out and follow the action on your laptop. If you get there early and stake out a table, you can expect to have a good time. 1525 William D. Tate Avenue
Boomer Jacks – OK, this is not technically in Grapevine, it is in Bedford. But it’s probably our favorite place nevertheless. The patio is a particularly nice place to hang out even if the weather isn’t perfect like it’s likely to be tonight. They also have free wifi and the service is generally outstanding. 2300 W. Airport Freeway, Bedford
Chill – We posted about Chill just the other day so no need to elaborate again. Plenty of TVs, nice variety on the menu, and staff who are friendly (if working out the kinks just a bit). It was wall to wall people last Friday night on their first night open with little advertising that we saw, so that tells me something. 814 S. Main St.
Tap-In Grill & Pub – This is as close as Texas gets to a real English pub and they have food head and shoulders above other sports bars in town. I love the patty melt and the buffalo chicken sandwich is very good as well. 120 S. Main St.
Bottlecap Alley Icehouse – This place is fairly new and I have not actually been, though we plan to visit soon – perhaps as soon as today! From what I am told the burgers are quite good and there are plenty of TVs to watch the game from any angle. 1469 W. Hwy 114.
This is a pretty good list to start off with and I am sure there are other options as well. Anyone have a different favorite?
