Silver Linings Playbook and Dinner at Legends Sports Bar
|Who needs love when you could have a big, juicy burger?|
Although we glossed over the sporty aspects of SLP, we did decide to go to a sports bar for dinner. We always love to hit up Coach & Willie's when we're downtown for a game so we decided to drop by for a bite. We were met with banners covering the old signage saying "Legends Sports Bar and Restaurant." While Coach & Willie's has a new name and new ownership, when we checked the menu, it literally hadn't changed at all. It even still said Coach & Willie's.
Around 8 p.m. on weekdays, Legends has $3 pints--so we grabbed a pint of Hop Knot to start. Immediately after sitting down, we heard a regular remark that the huge menu hadn't gotten any smaller since the new ownership, which to be fair, doesn't fully take effect until the grand opening on February 15. However, it is the sort of vast, picture-filled menu that you know Gordon Ramsay would have called the old owner's donkeys for making. We decided to keep it simple and not take any chances.
Since we were in on a Monday, we got the $7 burger special. While they offered a pizza burger with mozzarella, pepperoni and marinara, we went for the classic burger with cheddar, onions, lettuce and tomato. The juicy and actually medium-rare burger was definitely the way to go--especially since it comes with a side of fries, pretty much making it restaurant quality at fast food prices. We finished up with a slice of key lime pie, which isn't made in house, but is still a decent piece of pie.
Overall, Legends is a great place to grab a burger.
