The football season is almost done as just the Super Bowl between Carolina and Denver is left. We have gone to many different places to watch games, plus have some food and cold ones with my buddies.
It wasn’t till the last two weeks of the playoffs that I found the place I’m writing about this week. We went to Hammer’s Grill & Bar (771 E. Horizon Drive) in Henderson. I have driven by this place many times on the way to my wife’s dad’s house but never stopped.
This bar reminded me of the neighborhood stops back home in Pittsburgh. Nothing fancy, just cold drinks and good food with lots of TV’s carrying all the sports action. It doesn’t matter where you sit, there’s a TV right in front of you. You can tell the locals like to hang out here.
There was an older gentleman sitting at the bar rooting for the Steelers when they played Denver. He was in full gear wearing the Steeler Bubble Bee uniform complete with a steel worker’s hard hat.
It was a fun vibe place and had that small town Mom and Pop business feel to it. You could see the owner hanging out and enjoying the game with his customers.
This would be a great place to hang out just to watch the games but my buddies and I are here to eat as well. No sports bar is complete unless they have good wings so you know I’m ordering some. Here it was the Golden Garlic and Honey Sriracha wings.
These were some of the best wings I’ve had in Vegas, as their sauces were amazing. Personally, I liked the Golden Garlic the best but the Honey Sriracha was a close second. They also have a Blackened Wing that I want to try next time.
The secret to their wings is they marinate them then bake before frying and tossing in your favorite sauce. My buddy, who likes things a little on the spicy side, said those were his favorite sauce wings in town.
That’s a big statement considering how many wings the two of us have consumed around town. We also ordered the Buffalo Shrimp, which were excellent. You could get the shrimp in Buffalo sauce or Teriyaki Parmesan. If you are a fan of fresh cut fries you have to order a basket, which is big enough to share and only $2.50. That’s ridiculously cheap for the quality and amount you get.
I also tried the meatball appetizer for $7. That got you two giant meatballs sitting in marina sauce and two pieces of garlic bread. This was very good as well.
They have karaoke on Thursday and Saturday nights if you like that. From some of the pictures I saw online it seems karaoke is very popular there.
Our waiter really was very attentive, friendly and would make sure our drinks never ran out. He would take the sodas and freshen them up even before our glasses were empty. I really don’t get to this side of town as much as I used to but Hammer’s Grill & Bar will be a future stop. I give it 3.75 Forks.
