Waco is a place where you can simply settle down and relax. Throw the worries off your shoulders and put your feet up and watch the world go by. You’ll be welcomed by a city with a small town welcome.

But don’t let that fool you. There are places where you can really let your hair down. Some of these are at Waco’s great assortment of sports bars. They say everything is bigger in Texas. These bars may not have the square footage – but they make up for that in a welcoming atmosphere and great people.

Try one of these venues to really have some fun.

1. Crickets.

This bar and grill is the blueprint for what a sports bar should be. Darts, pool tables and shuffle board. The recipes for a great night out. Add some fantastic bar snacks, 22 flat screens and 100 draft beers and you have the perfect venue for a night out. Try the buttermilk battered chicken tenders.

2. Bubba’s.

The menu selection simply has something for everyone. From burgers to pizza and beyond – the choice is staggering. This chain has spread across the United States – and the reason isn’t that difficult to see once you visit.

Great value for money and a welcoming atmosphere make this a fantastic place to visit. Menu highlights have got to include the wings that are done to perfection, pizza that is prepared with attention to detail and the ‘Philly Steak’ pizza. But it’s all good.

3. The Salty Dog.

This venue has been around since 2010. They may not seem a long time – but given how competitive the ports bar sector is that’s no mean achievement.

More screens than anyone could possibly need and 30+ dedicated channels mean that sports lovers are spoiled for choice.

Add to the mix some excellent food and you really do have all the ingredients for an exciting sports bar experience.

The burgers are top class (the mac and cheese is worthy of a hat tip) and the chicken friend steak is a delight.

Friendly service and an atmosphere that simply begs for you to sit back and relax it’s the perfect place to spend a couple of hours throwing off the worries of the world.
