There’s nothing like sippin’ on a cold beer while you watch the big game. And although you can do that from the comfort of your own couch, sometimes it’s good to join the crowd and head down to your local sports bar. From San Antonio Spurs basketball games, to Saturdays spent watching college football, and Sunday NFL takeovers, how and where you want the game is all part of the fun.

And for those tourists visiting the area on business or vacation, you’re in luck too because we’ve compiled a list of the some of the best sports bars and grills in the San Antonio Area.
