Best Sports Bar (Place to Watch the Big Game)

Grab a seat and get ready for the big game at the Valley’s No. 1 destination for sports, Milwaukee Burger Company (2620 E Clairemont Ave. Eau Claire), which beat the buzzer with a narrow victory over the 11-time winner, Buffalo Wild Wings. With big burgers, cheese curds, and drinks, you can’t get any more Wisconsin than MBC. Second to none in taste, TVs, and trivia games, Buffalo Wild Wings (4612 Keystone Crossing, Eau Claire) is the definition of a sports bar. If you’re looking for a place to change things up, head to The District Pub & Grill (101 Graham Ave., Eau Claire), where you can let your mind get lost in their fish fries twice a week (Thursday and Friday). — Hillary Bell
