“Nice Place to Hang, But With Good Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Had dinner with my family the other night and 1st & 10 had a nice crowd. Family friendly, this is a sports bar and grill that has food somewhat better than what you would expect from a sports bar. Most everything we ate was good....though not crazy about the burger! Their wings were very good, with a number of "heat" choices...to go along with a nice bowl of chili. Kids had their own selections to choose from, not always available at this type of place. All in all, a good consistent dinner, with lots of sports to watch. A definite keeper for dinner, lunch or just to hang and have a drink with friends.

“Big Screens, Appetizers and Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

1st & 10 is a great place for both hanging out and watching a game on the many, many big screen TV's plus the protection screens at both ends of the restaurant or grabbing a bite to eat any day of the week. Great appetizers and happy hour beer specials, come sit at the bar or grab a table and you won't be disappointed. Friendly staff and lively atmosphere. I've had take out as well so call in an order if you can't stay.

“why only average?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Food is good, very good. They have some unique items on the menu. The decor is interesting - sort of stark but comfortable. We have a lot of favorite restaurants we think of "where do we want to go?" but this isn't one of them. I don't don't why. It just doesn't grab me. There are TVs at every table and it's billed as a sports bar, but YOU CAN'T CHANGE THE CHANNEL. You have to ask the waitress who asks the bartender. To me - this is the epitome of stupid. Also, we've been there about 4 or 5 times and I'd say the service is average. But like I said, the food is good and they have some great items on the menu.

“Decent but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Burger and fries was very good, but $12. They did not have unsweetened ice tea. I have not seen this not offered in a decade. And when I sent back my too-sweet ice tea, they charged me for it anyway. A very BADLY made specialty martini was $8. Draft beers $5.50 each. Service was good but $50 for two burgers, two beers and one drink? Seriously?

“Worth a drive great sports bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012 via mobile

This place has covered every detail. Hooks under the bar for your ladies purse or your coat. Goalposts in the urinals so you don't miss. Decorated with every teams logos, jersey or helmet. Oh yeah, the food, great burgers and sandwiches. The menu covers every base, no one will be left out here so bring the family. Check the calendar too, we just missed the wing special darn it! You won't be disappointed, we were very pleased by the atmosphere and cleanliness. Oh yeah, and the food!
