Broward-Palm Beach New Times
Football seasoning is ramping up. All across South Florida, sports bars slinging wings and burgers, beers and shots will be prepping for their Sunday rituals. But finding a good sports bar isn’t just as easy as popping into a barstool. You need a place that offers good food at decent prices, a sizable beer list, comfortable digs, and a whole lot of TVs so you can watch the game you want.
Bru’s Room – Entering a Bru’s through the teal and orange patio bar area brings to mind entering Sun Life Stadium, which makes sense considering it’s owned by ’80s-era Dolphins linebacker Bob Brudzinski. Most locations are fitted with an outdoor patio area with plenty of seats, whether at a table or a stool at the large bar, and dozens of flat-screen TVs are strategically placed every foot or two. Inside is another large bar, dozens more flat screens, and a pool table and dartboard. In addition to a full bar, a full menu is available, and fried pickles with spicy ranch sauce are Bru’s hallmark dish. Don’t forget the chicken wings — our favorite is the Triple Threat (BBQ, Sweet ‘N’ Tangy, and grilled with minced garlic). Fun fact for night owls: Bru’s reverse happy hour runs from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. So you can stay on long after the games are over.
