Game on: Bubba's 33 is Waco's newest full-service sports bar

Game on: Bubba's 33 is Waco's newest full-service sports bar

Lord knows I like to go out in the evening to eat some bar food, drink some beer and watch a ball game.

And clearly we have good places around Waco to do that. Now we have another one and from what I can tell so far it's top notch.  People frequently ask me where they should go watch the game and I'm going to have to start recommending they try Bubba's 33.

From what I can tell, one of Bubba's 33's bullet-point sales pitches is that they have more TVs than tables. That might be true, though I didn't count when I dined there last night. However, as stated, I go watch ball games at bars a lot and they have plenty of screens to show all the relevant action and plenty of viewing angles.

This theory hasn't been properly tested yet, and it won't until Texas Tech plays football on an off-brand cable channel this fall, but I think Bubba's 33 has better sports-on-TV accessibility than Buffalo Wild Wings. B-dubs was my go-to before, but I think I'll make a change. (I have to say here that for really important games, I'm still going to default to The Dancing Bear).

My interest in making Bubba's 33 my go-to sports watching spot is mostly because of its menu options. Pizza and burgers covers a lot more ground than wings. Last night, I ordered a pizza with my buds Chelsea and Joben. It was really good pie. I can't say it's the best in town, nor would I at this early stage. But it's going to be in the running, I think.

AN IMPORTANT HEADS UP: Bubba's 33 opens at 4 p.m. during the week. It opens for lunch Friday-Sunday, which is a key detail for college football fans, who will be eager to watch 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. games in a few months.

One more bite: Bubba's 33 is a chain with seven locations from North Carolina to Colorado. Our new one is the second in Texas as we join Corpus Christi.
