ISO great food, reasonable and TV's

Friday night is date night and it's my turn to pick. I'm looking for a place with great food, not crazy expensive (entrees under $20) that has TV's playing March Madess basketball (my fiance's request). West Hollywood, Hollywood, Beverly Hills area is preferable. Thanks so much in advance!!

  1. Just a bit further west, hit up the happy hour in the bar area of the Daily Grill on San Vicente in Brentwood. Not usually crowded, great food specials at $2.95 and $3.95 including their chicken pot pie (what seemed like almost a full regular serving). If you get there past seven I think they are offering some "family style" specials, but that may or may not be offered on weekends -- also be sure to inquire about a free dessert offer that goes on and off.

    Other than chains like Chili's or BJ's, I'm not seeing as many TVs around as I used to, except at bars and sports bar-type places. Houston's in Century City has TVs but it is a crowded zoo, and most of its menu is more expensive, except for burgers.

    1. There's a new free iPhone app from called FanFinder that lets you search for places showing the games you want and with fans of the same team. I don't know if you have an iPhone, but you might be able to find places that serve decent pub food with the app.

        I do have an iphone (and so does fiance) - he will LOVE that app! Thanks for the tip and suggestions. We ended up at 8 Oz Burger Bar (on Melrose) and it was perfect. We sat at the bar, watched the games (although they didn't have satellite so we could only watch one game at a time) and ate delicious burgers. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We'll definitely go back there in the future.

          Cool, I love Govind Armstrong. He makes some tasty burgers. Hope the app works for your fiance.
