Top Spots to Watch a Football Game

Dining Joint

Hut, hut, hike to the nearest top spot to watch a football game in San Diego. Whether you're cheering on your favorite College team, NFL team (Go Chargers!), or your Fantasy Football picks, this classic pigskin game brings the perfect opportunity to pig out with a bunch of other equally excited football fanatics. You can make it a whole day affair from the opening coin toss of the East Coast game to the final Sunday night end of game whistle. These San Diego dining joints score a touchdown in both the food department as well as atmosphere.

Endzone Pub & Grill - 2859 University Avenue, North Park
With a name like Endzone it has to be good, right? Well, every seat in this cozy sports bar in North Park is a winner thanks to the easy-to-view LCD TVs that let you watch every play no matter where you sit. If you like good beer you are in luck as there are 23 taps with a wide range of beers from local San Diego Craft Beer favorites like Stone IPA, St. Archer and HESS Brewing or pace yourself with football-fan favorites like Bud Light. Of course, in order to cheer on your teams all day and into the night you need to energize with food. Get a head start on the early game with Bacon & Cheddar fries - thick-cut fries smothered and topped with applewood smoked bacon. Snack on Jalapeño Poppers generously stuffed with mozzarella, cream cheese & bacon or order the Steamed Clams, which happen to be steamed with chardonnay, butter, diced tomato, green onion and garlic. Feast all day on Fish tacos, Hot Dogs, Burgers, Drunken Chili, and the locals favorite, Fish 'n Chips, which feature homemade Corona and Lime battered cod filets. A killer Happy Hour Menu includes $2 Endzone Shots, $3 Mimosa, and $4 Michelada’s on Sunday. This North Park football-watching hot spot proves that hipsters and jocks can hang out together, in peace, all for the love of Football.

The Draft - 4225 Oceanside Blvd, Oceanside
I tend to judge the merits of top-notch dining-joint-for-football-fans by their Chicken Wings selection. With up to 15 signature flavors, The Draft is where San Diego North County football fans in-the-know flock for chicken wings galore. Mix and match flavors such as Mango Habanero, Thai Chili, Teriyaki, Lemon Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, or test your manliness feasting on Wings of Fire, a flavor that brings that fiery, heated goodness directly to your taste buds. Yes, you can order a glass of milk to cool off the burning sensation, or, you can stop being a wimp and order a Pint of your favorite beer (30 Taps), Bloody Mary, Margarita or even alcohol-infused Root Beer! With two large rooms, plenty of tables, and over 43 big screen TVs strategically placed for optimum viewing, there is no way you're going to miss out on any of the on-screen action. Also good are the Hand-Tossed Pizzas and the Burgers, such as the Texan Burger - a half-pound Angus Beef patty with bacon, lettuce, tomato, 2 onion rings, and cheese smothered with a mouth-watering tangy BBQ sauce. Tip: 50-cent Wing Night on Wednesdays and a daily Happy Hour (except Wednesday) with $3 beers (yes, even the good beers) from 4 - 7pm!
