LV Sports Bar - Top Picks
Chowdy Vegas ;)
I'll spending the end of next weekend (Sun-Mon) in Vegas and was wondering what top picks would be for a sports bar that has edible chow...
My brother is flying down from Canada and I told him that I was bringing him to the Chargers game for his belated birthday gift. Vegas was supposed to be earlier in the week, but work situation and lack of available tickets made me adjust my plans.
Emphasis on good food and comfort level - we're not high rollers, just want a good screen, good grub and decent beer. We're staying on the Strip, but it's his first visit so I imagine we'll be moving around so he can get a good look at everything.
Try the ESPN Zone @ New York New York
or The Microbrewery @ Monte Carlo.....
both are fun places to catch a game!

I definitely second ciaogal's rec of Monte Carlo Brew Pub. You can't get a much better seat for a football game ( they have a lot of screens and BIG ), not to mention the beer ( make sure to get your own "tap" at the table - a tall, skinny cylinder that holds various amounts of beer ).
PT's Gold up in Summerlin has really, REALLY good food and lots of televisions but the screens are huge and it might not be really busy during the game. Just an FYI. I frequented that place at least twice a week when I lived up that way ( I also understand that they have a location on Decatur closer to the Strip but I've never been there). If you go make sure to have the popcorn chicken po' boy, the crab cake sandwich, or the BBQ pork stuffed potato skins.

Yet another vote for the microbrewery at the Monte Carlo. It's not the best brew-pub ever, compared to ones I've been to in other cities, but it's pretty good. I've tried the portabella mushroom sandwich (it has bacon on it!) and the fish tacos--both good, but not exceptional. I'm not a big beer drinker, but my companion thought the pale ale was pretty good, though gave slightly higher marks to the pale ale at Main Street Station, which had more of a home-brew quality somehow. We didn't know about the "tap" at the table--that sounds fun!
Avoid avoid avoid Dragon Noodle in the Monte Carlo if you happen to be walking past and are curious and hungry. Dreadful food and even worse service.
