Richmond, Virginia – On March 27th, 2012, CNN listed their picks for the 101 Best Sports Bars in the U.S., and Home Team Grill was one of two Virginia restaurants included on the list (the other was the Crystal City Sports Pub in Arlington). “Every state, every game, every freaking hot wing. There are bars that play sports and then there are sports bars,” writes CNN GO correspondent Jordan Burchette. “First, we surveyed local media “best of” praise. Then we solicited recommendations from local correspondents, bloggers and sports fans. Then we adopted an “at least one bar from every state” rule to ensure regional variety (see Hawaii and Mississippi for examples). Finally, we incorporated our own extensive experience. ”
While Home Team Grill has garnered many local “best of” awards in the past few years, this is the first time that they have been recognized for excellence on a national level.
“We’re very excited to be included on this list,” said Garland Taylor, Managing Partner of all Home Team Grills. “This is our first taste of national recognition. And to be one of only two Virginia companies to be named, and the only one in Central Virginia – well, that’s very special indeed.”
Home Team Grills are moderately priced restaurants that offer lots of sports and a wide variety of menu items. Homemade soups and freshly prepared salads, sandwiches, and entrees are a cornerstone of the restaurants. Takeout service is available, as is off-site catering. Home Team Grills are open seven days a week.
