Sports Bar with Decent Food for Saturday?

txgrl99 Oct 24, 2008 09:10 AM

We are in town this weekend and need a place to watch the University of Texas game tomorrow (since the game is on at the same time as the LSU game, we need a place with multiple televisions). We're staying at the International House (221 Camp). Any suggestions? Thanks!

    cooter brown's would have to be a streetcar or cab ride, but they have solid food and they're sure to have the game on. not sure what sort of environment you're used to, but it can get a little rowdy in there on saturdays. not a bad kind of rowdy. a college football kind of rowdy.

      Thank you both for the great suggestions! Football rowdy is our kind of rowdy, so we'll fit right in. : )

        I'm a bit late but I used to watch quite alot of sports at Vic's Kangaroo Cafe. Also the Acme is fun to watch stuff at. New Orleans isn't really a sports bar sort of place though.

          Our waiter the night before told us to go to Vic's as well. Unfortunately, we ate the largest (most wonderful) brunch ever at Commander's Palace and walked 3 miles back to our hotel. So we were super lame and watched the game in the hotel for heading out for the night. I have some great ideas for next time, though, which will be SOON. Thanks!
