Tony C’s Sports Bar & Grill, BurlingtonStandout Qualities: A massive video wall behind the bar means you can practically see the seams on the baseballs during the big game. Both the nicely comprehensive casual American menu and the authenticity brought by Red Sox star and founder Tony Conigliaro make this a great spot to catch sports year-round.
What’s Unique: Among its vast drink selection is the Im”pear”sible Dream cocktail, pear-flavored vodka with a splash of sparkling wine. For food, try the #25 Burger—black angus ground beef with pork belly, fried egg, and Vermont cheddar.
Insider Tip: Have a specific game you want to watch? Just ask the staff and they’ll put it on a screen near you (provided they get the channel it’s on, of course).
