While some people are dismissive of Lyle's, calling it as a raggedy-ass dive, we declare them wrong. Maybe we're just suckers for the red vinyl booths, and the way the outside world just disappears when you step into the windowless recesses. Happy hour runs all day long, meaning 2-for-1 on any drink everyday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and again from 9 to 11 p.m., with only one rule: no more than three drinks in front of each customer at a time. Happy hour is followed by free chicken wings at the warming table--look out for hoarders. Tons of big ol' TVs and breakfast served with a free bloody Mary or screwdriver make this a swell place to catch the early game. Try the breakfast quesadilla, $6.95 including cocktail. The daily blue plate specials for only $3.99 are also a score.
