Sports Bars in Toronto
Toronto is a team town. Whether you follow the Jays, the Raptors,
the leafs or the Grey Cup-winning Argos you know that Torontonians take sports seriously. That's why there are so many sports bars in
our city, and why they're so popular!
I'm a Leafs and Jays fanatic, and I follow the Raps and the Argos closely. Point is I've seen the inside of a lot of sports bars. The best of them have three elements:
a comfortable neighbourhood feel, affordability, and great food and service. There are
plenty of examples of sports bars that just don't get it right, and a few
shining models of ones that get it perfect.
Bar and Grill
In my humble opinion, the booming St. Louis Bar and Grill
franchise has created perfect sports bars throughout Ontario – including the
locations in Toronto. There's a St. Louis about half a block from my apartment,
and I've spent many happy hours there cheering on our teams. The appeal of St. Louis
simple -- good prices, good atmosphere, and great food and service.
The atmosphere is evident the second you walk in the door.
You'll see fellow fans wearing jerseys and talking stats, TVs tuned to the
sports stations, and friendly staff who are happy to welcome and serve you.
Soon you'll be sitting at a table or booth, drinking a pint
of your favourite brew and studying the menu. If you're like me, you'll want to
order one of everything – St. Louis has an amazing menu.
The two specialties of the house happen to be two favourites
of mine: St. Louis Chicken Wings, and Ribs.
St. Louis does chicken wings better than anybody around,
with more choice and more taste. At St. Louis Bar and Grill, you can order
original or boneless wings by the pound. Every pound comes with a generous
serving of signature golden fries and the franchise's Famous Garlic Dill Sauce. The
restaurant boasts twenty flavours of
wings, from Mild Salt & Pepper to Spicy Hotter Than Hell and from Chili Lime
to Honey Garlic. Try them all!
Their ribs are also superb: savoury back ribs and meaty side
ribs done to perfection by slow roasting and then grilling them until they melt
in your mouth. Your choice of three original types of BBQ sauce and sides makes
them your own. You can choose from;
Southern Style BBQ
Great Food and Great Prices
Other menu choices include a wide range of appetizers, from Calamari
to Nachos to Deep-Fried Pickles to St. Louis special Bacon-Wrapped Mac and Cheese. A full array of burgers is available, from 100% Angus Beef topped with
bacon and cheese to Garlic Dill Chicken Burger to a vegetarian option.
Sandwiches such as Beef Dip, Jerk Chicken, Pulled Pork, and a Triple-Decker Clubhouse are sure to please, along with soups and salads. Poutine
, Chicken Fingers, and sides
like Onion Chips and Sweet Potato Fries are also mouth-wateringly delicious.
The third element for a great sports bar experience,
affordability, is definitely on display at St. Louis Bar and Grill. And while
their everyday prices are excellent, you can save even more by taking advantage
of their daily specials.
