YOUR PICKS
1. Taco Mac

“Excellent food and service, family oriented in the suburbs and city chic in Atlanta locations. An amazing number of beers on tap, and from what I’ve observed, from 30 to 60 flat-screen TVs in every location.”

2. Trackside Tavern
3. Hudson Grille
4. TJ’s Sports Bar & Grill
5. The Derby

Stats is our pick for best place to watch the Super Bowl. The upscale food choices are a big draw, but the number of screens is a factor, too. You won't miss a moment of the game at Stats. Photo: Jason Getz, jgetz@ajc.com

OUR PICKS
1. Stats
We say, “This downtown Atlanta spot has TVs everywhere, free-flowing beer and food that puts the average sports bar fare to shame. Stats is the kind of place where anyone can feel comfortable, and you’ll never miss a moment of the game.”

Oh yes, so true all they need is a dead monkey and we’re re in business.

Based on the length of the dang thing the best place is a neighbor’s house so you can get home quick and easy.

My house. Big screen TV, surround sound. Great cooking. Spirits optional. Atlanta fans have ZERO passion for anything that’s not college-related. There’s more sports passion in my house than there is in any sports bar in Atlanta.

@Rock, most “Atlanta” fans are carpetbaggers these days…thus the tepid “support” of/for pro sports.

The best place in Decatur now is Trackside Tavern – not a “sports bar” but a bar where it is fun to watch sports. I watched this week’s playoff games there on Sunday and had a great time (for six hours!) Comfortably crowded but not elbow-to-elbow, six TV’s to watch and two that face the patio so you don’t miss anything when you go outside to smoke. Great food and other distractions – pool and darts to play if the game gets boring.

This is a dumb question. You are going to get a lot of \”Home\” responses because it makes the most sense.

Since the game runs late, no one wants to drive home after that.
Since most \”beer\” bars don\’t have a plethora of TVs, it makes more sense to fill a couple of growlers and stay in.
Nothing worse than a sports bar full of idiots standing in the way, making it difficult to actually watch the game.
Also, food and beverage are cheaper and better.

In the streets Downtown… Lazarus Ministries has a wonderful event to include the homeless and anybody else who wants to join in. A chili cook-off followed by the Super Bowl projected on the side of a building…the biggest big screen you’ll find around the ATL!

I grow weary of the morons like Mary B and Rocky Gaines who just found the internet yesterday and think they are so “original” and “witty” with the “my house” answers but………..

You make a good point about the parties LawDawg, just think of watching the Superbowl at a bar as a huge party where you have to “chip in” for the food and drinks lol.

As far as the best bar? That would be the one you go to and know folks at. For me that would be Three Dollar Cafe in Embry Hills.

On ESPN highlights for five minutes, since the game never lives up to the hype and thereby not wasting five hours of my life. This method cuts out the idiot commercials and the sub-par, garage band half-time show, which by the way is the only part more over-hyped than the game itself.

gtalum, I was all ready to say my house and talk about the 110″ screen, the bar and everything else.

Your idea sounds like a great one for a change. If I’m not in Indy for the Super Bowl, I will look into this. Thanks!

Deadwood Saloon has many LED flat screens all throughout the bar and a game room. They’re having beer, shot, and food specials. Last year they were busy, make sure you get there early. Best to reserve your table upstairs if you have a big group. Laid back place.

Home hands down!! Nothing like watching anything albeit sports, a concert, etc. from the comfort of your own home with a pillow, throw blanket, food and drinks in the frig. Sure beats going out and picking up other people’s germs and getting sick!! Not to mention with gas prices and all the terrible traffic accidents in Atlanta, it simply makes more sense!!

HOME. Even if it’s not an option for voting, it’s the best place. That way I can rewind the plays I want to see over, fast forward through the commercials, and mute the half-time crap.
