Get Your Football On Here

By | September 26, 2012

Sunday Texans fans will no doubt be cheering their hearts out against the Titans after coming off two wins this season [that is if you have any voice left from the ridiculously hard game Sunday]. Or college football on Saturday.  Side note: I love this time of year!  Here’s where to catch the game in Montrose:

El Real Tex-Mex
Game Day, queso and one of the biggest screens in town? Yes, please. The folks at El Real know a good formula and they have it. It begins with brunch and bacon enchiladas. And ends with a great game on the big screen and beer. Get their early to grab a good seat.

Our favorite neighborhood Irish pub is also our favorite neighborhood football pub. Their facebook claims  ‘jello shots when the Texans score…’ [that had to be a painful Monday recovery this week].

The Hay Merchant
Of course, for the beer nerds, you can accept no alternative to the Hay Merchant for your Sunday football-plus-beer fix.  This weekend they even threw a pig on the roaster. The passion for football here runs deep. You’re in good company.

Royal Oak
A step above the usual, this Montrose watering hole has great parking, stellar drink specials, a cut above your average bar fare [green chile mac ‘n cheese and gulf shrimp and grits come to mind] a regular crowd with personality and … the Texans’ games.

Jackson’s Watering Hole
Opens at 11:00 am every Saturday and Sunday for all the games. Catch both ESPN Gameplan and the NFL Sunday ticket on seven  TVs. Jackson’s also has $14 domestic buckets, $12 domestic pitchers and $4 call drinks. And you can typically catch some good grubs from a local food truck parked out front.


Where are you watching the game?
