Monday Night Football at Iron Steaks

Iron Steaks has a great happy hour and two huge TVs in its bar area.

On Monday nights, they extend their happy hour thru the end of the game.

Combine their $2 happy hour Pabst Blue Ribbons and their tasty food, and you have a perfect place to watch the Baltimore Ravens vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday Night Football. (Here's a recommendation: If you like donuts at all, you HAVE to try their beignets.)

Is Iron Steaks not your cup of tea? Check out other recommendations on where to watch Monday Night Football.

Monday Night Football at JB's Lounge

I'll be the first to admit that going to a hotel bar isn't the first place I'd consider going for Monday night football. But when I looked at the drink specials for JB's Lounge at the Red Lion in Arden, I quickly reconsidered.

  • $6 Pitchers of Bud Light
  • $15 Buckets of Beer (6 Bud Lights or 5 Coronas)

And if that's not enought to convince you, take a gander at their Yelp reviews for the newly-remodeled space.

Monday Night Football at Sweetwater Restaurant & Bar

Another Monday means another Monday Night Football game. If you're looking for a place with a huge TV, good bar area and all night happy hour, look no further than Sweetwater Restaurant & Bar at 19th & S.

My favorite appertizer there is the Big Easy shrimp. Well worth the $5. I also like their beer selection that extends beyond PBR and Bud Light.
