Barrel & Ashes is already well established as a spot for quality barbecue in the Valley. But during NFL season the place doubles as a sports bar with multiple TVs spread across two floors, making it ideal for game day viewing and dining.

Jalapeno Pete’s claims to serve the best tacos in town. Regardless of the massive claim, the Studio City restaurant at least gets credit for having a great tequila selection and enough TV’s to catch any game.

There’s a ‘Tom Brady will beat your team’-sized bet to be made that Bonchon will have the best chicken wings of any place on this list. The beer offerings are severely limited but if chicken and beer is what you’re after, there’s enough TV’s to catch some football on Sundays.

Barney’s Beanery is an LA classic, sporting multiple locations throughout the Southland. Always equipped with a solid amount of screens, the no-frills Irish pub is as dependable as an every-down back.

Beelman's is a great place to be, particularly during game day. With all manner of smothered fries and a clean-but-laid back vibe, it's a great place to take in a pint and watch some pigskin without the craziness of the average Irish pub.

Sonny McLean's is the Boston sports bar in Los Angeles, and probably one of the only public in LA one could wear a Patriots jersey and be reasonably shielded from ridicule. It's also home to a more-than-serviceable rendition of fish and chips, plus lots of inexpensive pints of beer of course.

Ping pong, billiards, and 31 different screens define the lineup at Pitcher House, which sits on the second floor of a mini-mall shared with a Whole Foods. It’s a funky address, perhaps, but inside the place is nothing but a good time.
