Here are a few places you can watch your favorite game (for the sports nuts or not), while also enjoying delicious appetizers and addicting dishes.

Whether you’re looking for a good burger, killer appetizers, 40s of beer, thoughtfully-crafted cocktails, a place to watch the game or even a dance party, Pounds is welcoming and gratifying in many ways. And with plenty of finger food to share (or not, depending on how addicted you become to these apps), Pounds is easily a great place to bring your friends and have a round or five.

The restaurant has also launched stellar new menu items to boot, so don’t waste any time getting your hands on any of it. We’re not joking when we say it’s addicting.
