If you’re looking for somewhere to watch the game, Armadillo Grill in Phoenix is the place to go according to Thrillist.

The website named a best sports bar for every NFL city and Armadillo Grill was the winner for the Arizona Cardinals.

Located at Camelback Road and the SR-51, the game-day hangout received a rave review.

Forty-four TVs should be enough to watch the 10 or so NFL games that kickoff at the same time every “fall” and “winter” Sunday morning in Phoenix. That includes eight 60-plus-inch TVs around the center bar, which were newly installed last season. Cards and Packers fans show up in droves to enjoy the games and a Four Peaks beer made especially for the bar (aka the best brewery in the country, according to Thrillist readers). There’s also free billiards during Monday Night Football, off-track betting for the gambling degenerates, and fried pickles and pan-fried chicken smothered in white mushroom sauce for the hungry.

Free billiards for Monday Night Football and fried pickles sure sounds like a winner to us.

Other winners in nearby states include The Grand Oaks Sports Bar in Oakland, Bub’s at the Ballpark in San Diego, Tavern Downtown in Denver and San Francisco Athletic Club in San Francisco.

While all of these restaurants have the special hometown feeling around them, it’s tough to beat The Fifty in Chicago, which has a “Packers Suck” banner with a smile right when you enter. The rivalry is so intense that they don’t even sell beer from Wisconsin.
