    Good Sports Bars

    I live in Grimes and am looking for a good place to watch the road games. Are there any suggestions for the WDM, Urbandale, Johnston areas?

    Re: Good Sports Bars

    CW will suggest Ridgemont or 3Bag. It all depends on what type of atmosphere you're looking for.

    Overtime Bar & Grill 86th St just off of 35/80 probably the closest. Also Victor's on 73rd & Douglas in Urbandale.

    Victor's has great food. Their TV situation is very lacking though. Time to upgrade to flat screens.

    Was just going to say this. Great food, bad TVs. Ate there last night. Wings are great, nachos too. Get the mason man sandwich some time.

    Re: Good Sports Bars

    True on Vic's, but it's within walking distance from my house, so it holds a soft spot with me. Overtime always looked packed on the weekends and is really nice inside. Never ate there though.

    The Chicken coup isn't too bad either. Although I never seem to get a great vibe from that place.

    Trophies or Johnny's Hall of Fame and both are Cyclone friendly establishments!

    Same thing. Maybe because I get the feeling its Nebraska bar?
    Great fried food, delicious wings, the gf doesn't like them though because they have a natural gas grilled flavor.
