The countdown is officially over! LSU Football has returned to the Capital City, and we’ve scoped out the best places for you to watch the big game! Whether it’s an away game or you simply can’t make it to campus, we have a list of places to ensure you never miss the action!
As is with tailgating, we know there are a few things to consider when choosing your ideal game-watching spot… From a lively atmosphere to multiple TV screens and great food to local brews, we’ve rounded up the best!
Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar
Nothing exuberates game day more than a trip to Walk-On’s! With drink specials, cheese fries and an array of entertainment, this is one of our favorite family-friendly recommendations! Just be sure to get there early! You can catch the same atmosphere in a more relaxing setting at their Town Center and Juban Crossing locations too. Even Drew approves!
The Chimes/Varsity Theater
If purple + gold is your favorite game day duo, The Chimes and Varsity Theater should be a close second! From the drink specials to the lively entertainment, you’ll never miss a round or a play! We recommend the spinach + artichoke dip with a local brew from The Chimes next door…
As Thomas Rhett says, you can also party like you’re on vacation – and Game Day is no exception! Come check out Creole Cabana off Burbank for the largest outdoor theater screen for all your viewing needs! There will be drink specials, food + a family-friendly atmosphere for all to enjoy on their +5000 SF open air patio.
Here’s a local favorite you may not immediately think of… But boy is it worth it! From the many TV screens to the everlasting line-up of food, they have you and your taste buds covered no matter what you’re feeling! PS – You won’t have to worry about navigating contraflow post-game either!
Buffalo Wild Wings
Beer, football, and wings… A man’s best friend during college football season! You can catch the full action at their campus location or take a drive toward their Bluebonnet/Perkins one. No matter which one you choose, it’s sure to be a great time for the whole family!
Rally your friends and family for this local game day favorite! They’ll be serving up delicious specials like $5 CurbSIDES (truffle fries, GC2 tots + fried pickles) plus $3 Yuengling/Budweiser pints each Saturday during football season! You can even check out the new projector they have in the Pork Palace and live music offerings!
Come on over to a classic family favorite next game day! From shrimp po-boys to fried catfish and everything in between, there’s sure to be something to tempt you and your kiddos’ tastebuds! Beer for you, root beer for the family – What more could you ask for while cheering on those fighting Tigers?!
Want to be a hop, skip and a jump from campus but still experience all of the fun? Tin Roof has you covered! Come sip a Bayou Bengal while you test your competitive side at corn hole or ping pong!
So there you have it! We’ve rounded up our favorite places to watch the game – from the most lively to the family-friendly. Let us know which are your go-to spots and as always Geaux Tigers!
