If you find yourself in search of a good sports bar in Katy, head over to Texas Mesquite Grill, which specializes in regional Texas cuisine. The menu features appetizers such as bacon-wrapped quail breast stuffed with jalapeño and jack cheese, and mesquite-grilled fajitas. There's even a brunch menu with a Texas flare. For the best deal, try to plan your visit around happy hour, which is Monday through Friday from 2 to 7 p.m., when you can get chili con queso and chips for only $1.95.
8. Pub Fiction
Setting aside the fact that Pub Fiction has the best name of any pub in town, we love the place because its extensive menu includes a number of fresh salads for those days when a burger and fries are just too much. The margarita shrimp salad is a taco salad with a twist, and the kung "pow" chicken salad has a fun Asian kick to it. Of course, the junk food abounds as well. Try the over-the-top "Fiction Fresh Cut Fries" with blackened rémoulade and Texas ale queso, or the fried pickle chips with grilled jalapeño ranch for
great greasy sustenance to carry you through a long game.
7. The Bull & Bear Tavern and Eatery
The best thing about Bull & Bear's menu is that it features both traditional American bar food (think potato skins, fried mozzarella and burgers) and traditional British pub food (cottage pie, Scotch egg, mushy peas, Yorkshire pudding) for a truly diverse dining experience. It's primarily a soccer bar, but it does show every local NFL game during football season as well. It also serves breakfast Saturday and Sunday until 2 p.m. for those hoping to catch a live game in a different time zone. Just make sure before you go that you're clear on whether they're showing football or American football.
