Best Sports Bar
Peppers and Fries
The maroon and gold Gophers’ colors of the Peppers and Fries sign act like a lighthouse for any sports fan driving down East Lake Street. Yes, weary traveler, the game will be on in here. Which game? Whichever. Though petite, the whole room’s ringed with television sets, and the remote master wisely sets different screens to broadcast multiple events at once. Decorations inside are evidence Steve Frias is a stone-cold baseball seamhead, and the menu outs him as a burger addict with a wild side. There’s a jucy lucy topped with mac and cheese, and a PB & J burger flavored with house-made pepper jelly. Try to remember to wipe your hands before reaching up to high-five someone.
