Football fanatics (that's British football, mind you) have their own official clubhouse thanks to this Lakeview pub. The emphasis is split evenly between neighborhood and sports, making patrons feel like they're watching the game from the comfort of their own couch, just with 20 beers on tap in the kitchen.
Aiming for cuisine that's a step above pub grub (or the bag of Doritos you'd eat on that couch), the eclectic menu includes giant stuffed quesadillas, steak and ale pie, a Global Burger with any number of toppings, a full breakfast menu, and a "Healthy Options" section. Pinch those pennies Monday-Friday with the Blue Plate Special from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
But back to sports. Those who eschew the European version will be happy to know that every NFL game is televised live on high-definition TVs (ask about The Globe's own Fantasy Football League). Also, extensive coverage of MLB, the NHL, college hoops and just about every soccer league under the sun.
Average cost: <$10
