A few weeks ago I ventured out to Aces & Ales (2801 N. Tenaya Way). Now, I’ll admit I don’t get out to this part of town often but with what I found here I could see me making more trips.

The minute I sat down in the dining room side of the bar I immediately wished I’d found this place during football season. All the tables face one of two walls. On the wall I was facing were eight big flat screen TV’s each with a different basketball game.

The first thing you need for a long afternoon of watching games is some cold beverages. If you are a beer person this is your place with over 50 on tap. Trust me, there is something here for every type of beer lover.

The menu is massive so you could make many trips and always be able to try something new. They have great appetizers for watching games with friends. The normal bar fare consists of chicken wings and tenders but they also had items such as Bavarian pretzels, a cheese plate, Wisconsin fried cheese curds and, of course, nachos.

They also have an appetizer called beer bites that were bite-sized pieces of their homemade pizza crust brushed with garlic butter, garlic, herbs and parmesan cheese, served with your choice of beer cheese, marinara or queso dip. I’m trying these on my next trip. Most of the appetizers are $9 or under.

One of the house specialties is grilled cheese sandwiches. They have six different gourmet grilled cheese creations. I went with the Green Apple Bacon Cheddar grilled cheese sandwich. Now I know at first this may not sound like a good combination but it really was quite good.

The combination of smoky bacon with the sweet crispness of the green apple gave the grilled cheese a very good sweet and salty combination. My friend went with the Cajun Mac ’n Cheese, which consisted of cheddar and pepper jack cheese along with Andouille sausage, red and green peppers, onions, celery and their own Cajun seasonings. I sampled some and it was fantastic.

On our waitress’ recommendation I will be back to try the Juicy Lucy burger, which is a handmade Black Angus patty stuffed with American cheese, applewood bacon, chorizo and onion. She said that burger was the best sandwich on the menu. Aces & Ales also makes fresh pizzas hand crafted with fresh homemade dough and sauce.

Bottom line: This is a great place to hang out and watch the games while having a cold one with good food. My only knock is Aces & Ales is all the way across town for me, but so worth the drive. I give them 3.75 Forks.
