Beer, wings, football! Is this what you think of when one asks what you are doing on a Sunday afternoon in the fall? It is my husband’s go to statement! One place where they serve fabulous chicken wings and a diverse selection of beer is Hunter’s Pub. This bar and restaurant offers exemplary service with a true neighborhood feel. There are 3 locations throughout Lafayette-West Lafayette and they each have multiple t.v.’s for continuous football viewing!
Fall is one of our favorite seasons for two different reasons; football for my husband and football food for myself! I enjoy football, but I am not an avid watcher. If my hubby will take me to a fun restaurant with good food, I am sold! One such place is Hunter’s Pub. My husband says there is an art to ordering food while watching a game. First we have to order appetizers to munch on during the first half and when there is 2 minutes left in that half, we can order our entrees. Not one second before the 2-minute mark! Hunter’s Pub has such a wide selection of appetizers it is hard to choose, but their wings (as mentioned above) are wonderful. Their jumbo wings are juicy and perfect dipped in a bit of ranch. We usually alternate between ordering their loaded nachos, potato skins and schroomies (hushpuppy-like fritters made with portabella mushrooms, jalapeno peppers and 4 different cheeses and served with ranch). The best games are when we are with a bunch of friends and we order all three!
Onto the entrees! Hmmm…where to start?! Many times I order a salad after downing so many calories in our appetizers. One would assume with the bar-like feel of the place, that they wouldn’t have a diverse salad selection, but they have 13 different salads on their menu! My favorite is their black and blue salad, which features fresh romaine lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, blue cheese crumbles and is topped with blackened chicken. It is light and refreshing. My husband wouldn’t be caught dead ordering a salad on game day! He is a burger kind of guy and simple at that. Their Hunters Burger is beef, bun and cheese. Simple yet yummy! (I usually nab a bite!) They offer 12 different burgers and are 1/2 pound of 100% ground beef. President, Jo Wade, of Visit Lafayette-West Lafayette shares, “I LOVE that they also have wonderful veggie black bean burgers that not many pubs include their variety on their menus. I truly appreciate that option when eating with my meat eating family and friends!”
Football season is here, and finding the perfect place to watch is so important. Head to one of Hunter’s Pub 3 locations and enjoy everything they have to offer. Great food, atmosphere and service all in one location!
