Phoenix East Valley - Sports Bars with good food

StuCazzo Jun 7, 2008 08:13 AM

The Euro2008 soccer tournament kicks off today.

Does anybody know of any good bars/restaurants in the East Valley area
that would be a good place to watch soccer and also enjoy a nice lunch?

I know I can probably go to most any sports bar to see it, but I was hoping
to find a place that has good food too.

    I know the Skeptical Chymist in N. Scottsdale is showing the Soccer....
    I would think their sister restaurant Fibber McGee's in Chandler would be as well....

    Love the Fish and Chips and the Irish Breakfast...
    Get a side of the curry sauce to dip your chips in to...yum!

      I've had some good lunches at the Half Moon Sports Grill. There's one on Kyrene and Elliot in Tempe, as well as some other locations in the valley.

      I'm not sure if Four Peaks would be showing it, but they're definitely a good choice for grub and drink as well.

        I agree that Half Moon and Four Peaks are good choices. I've also found good food at CK Tavern in Ahwatukee and McDuffy's Grille in Chandler. Both have tons of TVs.

          Although not a "sports bar" , the bar @ Grainbelt Grillhouse is beautiful. There must be 6 or 8 TV's and they have great food.

          Haven't been in years, but Eli's in Scottsdale is awesome. We've enjoyed salad and salmon sliders. They're known for their filet sliders. Amazing homemade dressings too!

            I like the food at the Baseline Sports bar. It's pretty standard bar fare, but doesn't seem as greasy as some others. Good grilled chicken wings & nice crispy curly fries.

            I think the George & Dragon draws a big soccer crowd, but I can't comment on thier food.

              Madi G's in Ahwatukee has a screen at every table and good burgers. I'd imagine Fibber Magee's and Churchill's in Chandler would be showing soccer, too. Churchill's has terrific food.

                I get dragged to Zipps a lot, and enjoy their fish and chips, onion rings and fries. (not all at the same time) They have an ungodly amount of TVs.

                  I always seem to strike out at Zipps. One night it was a charred burger, one night some soggy tacos... never tried the fish & chips, tho.

                    I go to zipps(the one on camelback rd) once a week after my coed softball games, and i can vouch for the wings which are always awesome, the foccacia sandwiches are also really good, and cheap beer. i always try to make sure not to stray too far from bar food though.

                    and i also recommend goldies, haven't ate there in years, but as far as quantity and quality of tv's go, zipps and goldies cant be beat.

                        Zipps has awesome fries and salads! Just stay away from the Pizza!! Used to go to Goldies, but the quality has just gone downhill.

                  Hand's down .. love the food at Teakwoods. They have a location at Kyrene and Ray (I am pretty sure) and we frequent the location at Gilbert and Chandler Blvd (aka Williams Field). Looks like a Scottsdale location too from the link search. Lot's of choices, daily specials (like 10) and big menu.

                    I would recommend the Fox Sports Grill in Scottsdale. Upscale bar with above average bar food. Tons of screens and good beer on tap.

                      I'm pretty sure The Dubliner is showing the games and their food is solid. They have a big projection set and pull a screen down in front of the stage.
