Find killer beer specials and excellent snacks at these local sports bars
1. City Works
With its proximity to The Star, home of the Dallas Cowboys, it’s not a surprise that City Works is a game day destination.

2. Milo Butterfingers
Party it up frat boy style at this charmingly dingy SMU establishment. The pitchers of beer are cold and cheap, there’s plenty of TVs for watching the game, and if the action on the field isn’t holding your attention, foosball and darts make for a welcome distraction.
3. Stan's Blue Note
Stan’s drinks are served in Mason jars, the loaded nachos are awesome; and the people are loud and inebriated. It’s a place where people from different backgrounds, countries, and creeds come together to scream proudly at athletes on television.

If the weather is nice, there's no better way to spend gameday than at Truck Yard. Grab a frozen cocktail or two, dig into a cheesesteak, and get rowdy on the patio. Oh, and of course, enjoy a day of al fresco football watching from the comforts of a treehouse.
