I kicked off the college football season last Thursday night at Sago’s Baja Tavern Lounge located at 4790 S. Fort Apache Road. I’ll be making my rounds to various sports bars in and around Las Vegas as I love to watch the games, have a cold one with friends and enjoy good food.
If you haven’t been to Sago’s I suggest you go as they have a great set up for watching games. In the main dining area they have a giant wall that has a massive TV in the middle and three good size TV’s running down both sides of the giant screen, giving you seven different games without having to turn your head.
This is vital when watching multiple games and trying to navigate a plate of wings. If you have to keep turning your head from side to side to catch the different games spread out throughout the bar you’re going to end up with wing sauce on your shirt. Trust me, I know all too well.
I went to watch the Michigan/Utah game with my two buddies who both hail from Michigan, which made for a fun time. Well, fun for me, not so much for them as I bet Utah. The other nice part was we actually were there during Happy Hour, which is from 3-7 p.m.
Sago’s has one of the best Happy Hours in town for bar food and drinks. All appetizers are 50% off and they have great drink specials. In addition to the beer specials, which most bars have, they have real deals on cocktails. My buddies were enjoying Jim Beam and soda for just $2.
For food I went with the chicken wings in the sweet chili sauce. The wings were excellent as I asked for mine extra crispy and they cooked them just right. At $4.50 during Happy Hour you get eight wings and French fries. At that price, and for how good these were, it’s a steal.
They have a Bavarian pretzel that’s the size of your head. This is a great appetizer to munch on while having a cold drink and watching a game. You’ll feel like you’re right at the game. My buddies had the chicken quesadilla and the sliders; both enjoyed them very much.
The waitresses were friendly and attentive, as we never went thirsty the entire time. Add in the food specials during Happy Hour and you have a recipe for returning often.
I give Sago’s Baja Tavern Lounge a rating of 3.75 Forks.
