Austin Terrier

Picked by our readers as 2012’s Best Kept Secret, Austin Terrier serves pizza and sandwiches alongside a good beer selection. Order the Trio of Fries – it's an orgy of flavors.

B.D. Riley's Irish Pub

Irish music, excellent pub grub, and Guinness and Smithwick's Ale by the 20-ounce imperial pint make this a great place to watch sports. Check out six 42-inch hi-def plasma TVs and the 65-inch "ScreenZilla" Mitsubishi in back.

Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill

Some say the sliders here are the best in town. Happy hour draws a crowd, and so do the 31 TVs for the sports set.
