Sideline's Sports Bar, Bend Oregon --

Ahhhh, Sideline's. Bend's ONLY sports bar. Don't argue with me -- O'Kane's is NOT a sports bar, and Player's, while they do have the NFL package, only serves deep fried food and is too smoky and off the beaten path.

Sideline's is located on Wall Street in downtown Bend. They boast about 30 televisions, thus every sports game is able to get equal coverage. Just find a seat in front of your favorite game and "Sit, Stay" like a good dog.

DH and I bought a new big ol' television yesterday, and were pumped to watch some good games today. One game was on this morning, the Giants and the Redskins. Lame. I woke up DH and said, "How about breakfast?" He said "SURE!" I said, "Get dressed and meet me in the car."

Not exactly what he was expecting.

I wanted to watch the Green Bay / Cin game, and we showed up at Sideline's at the perfect time -- the only two seats available were just being vacated RIGHT IN FRONT of the Packers game.

I ordered the fish tacos, and was very pleased. The blackened whitefish was perfectly seasoned and served with crunchy lettuce in corn tortillas, served with a tangy dill sauce and tomato salsa. A perfect portion of fresh, yummy fish tacos.

DH ordered three Haake Beck beers and decided to have breakfast when we got home.

Have you been to Sideline's and watched their bartender in action? Caito was behind the bar, yelling and cheering when his Cowboy's scored, ringing the bell and screaming at the opposing team's fans that were seated in the restaurant. All the while, he's running back and forth taking orders, pouring beers, ringing up tabs, and keeping a cordial banter with his customers. This guy is a pro.

Not much of a review, but I do believe it's worth the time to write about. Sidelines is a friendly, inexpensive spot to hang with the locals and have a good time. Get there early on Sundays, though, if you want a decent seat. The place gets packed!

Fish Tacos: $6
3 Haake Becks: 7.50
2 Bucklers: $5.00
Bill: $18.50
Tip: $6.00
Total: $24.50
