The Pub has some of the best bar food you will find. The wings are amazing, the seasoned fries and tots are great, and the special sandwich of the day is always a treat. The owners and bartenders are all very cool, and the jukebox has all kinds of obscure stuff too.
Best Neighborhood Bar, Mesa Phoenix 2009 - Pub 'N' Grub
The term "Cheers-style" gets thrown around a lot in the discussion of neighborhood bars, but we're certain it's not usually as appropriate as it is with Mesa's Pub 'N' Grub. This little corner dive has fryers behind the bar and a selection of cheap domestic beers served in frosted mugs or hearty pitchers. It's a consistently pleasant crowd, mostly folks from the Dobson Ranch neighborhood, but also a few bikers who don't seem to take their badass role too seriously. The bartenders are just a little sassy and there's always somewhere to sit. The food — pretty much all of it fried golden brown — is just what you want from pub fare. Oh, and everyone knows your name. Or will know your name if you come in twice in two weeks.
