Sidewinders is a sports lover’s mecca. It’s also a place that you can fit all of your friends in one booth while you play euchre.
I knew Sidewinders for its well-poured margaritas (muddled, changed up frequently) and epic nachos which are meant for sharing (if you like the company that you are in).
With the hockey playoffs in full swing, it’s worth planning your viewing around the generous Happy Hour (4.30-6.30) which features 2-1 well drinks (even the scrumptious margs) and dollar off all drafts.
Try their menu of sliders (that come with a hefty handful of seasoned fries) for $3.50 each. I tried a BBQ chicken slider that went perfectly with a citrusy hefeweizen.
Speaking of drafts, Sidewinders has the greatest offering of beers in Jackson (28 on tap!). Where there are plenty of domestic and international beers to sip by the pint, the signature feature in their selection is a vast array of regional craft ales from breweries in Idaho, Wyoming and Montana.
I tried the Lander Brewing Company’s Half-Tanked Hefe: unfiltered and fresh, this fruity draft is something to taste while Broadway’s sun streams in and your favorite team scores a goal. Pair it with any kind of burger you want (buffalo, beef, chicken, veggie and turkey) or arugula salad with salmon if you want to keep things on the healthier side of things. This hefeweizen is the perfect beverage for a spring afternoon of playoff watching, card playing or passing a few hours, post-work with friends.
