The food and drinks are tasty and the prices are great--especially compared to the restaurants and bars nearby. They also have a DJ and/or live music at night. Highly recommended.

Bar Amigos have so many TVs I would be surprised if they didn't! I am not into sports but Bar Amigos is a sports bar. Ask them nicely and they will do their best to get the channel of your choice. The key thing is to ask... More
