Sports fans, rejoice – after seven long months, the NFL season is back. That means all across the the Valley, friends and family are gathering around televisions, setting fantasy football rosters, and enjoying America's favorite sport in earnest.

It also means the Valley's favorite sports bars and restaurants will be offering some of the best specials and happy hours you'll find all year long. So, if you're cheering for an out-of-market team or you don't want to spring for Sunday Ticket, check out these top football specials in metro Phoenix this season.

Lucky Lou’s American Grill

With locations in Chandler and Mesa, Lucky Lou’s American Grill is one of the best spots for catching the early games in the East Valley. The restaurant opens at 9 a.m. on Sundays and offers a small but satisfying breakfast menu, complete with biscuits and gravy, a breakfast burrito, and breakfast sandwich. The Weekend Happy Hour kicks in at noon, just in time for the afternoon games – enjoy $3 22-ounce domestic drafts, $3.75 well drinks, $4 bloody marys and mimosas, select half-off appetizers, and more. Although on the smaller side, Lucky Lou’s offers more than 20 flat-screen TVs and plenty of high-top, bar, and booth seating. Crowds don’t typically arrive until early afternoon, so you have plenty of reasons to get there bright and early.

Arcadia Tavern

A tried-and-true neighborhood watering hole, Arcadia Tavern is a must-visit for Biltmore/Arcadia football fans. Be sure and get there for first kickoff, since the bar and restaurant offers $5 Tito’s bloody marys and mimosas along with a full breakfast menu from 9 a.m. to noon. When the afternoon games roll around, and perhaps a few friends join in, domestic buckets are just $15 for the rest of the day. Just about every square inch of Arcadia Tavern that isn’t decked out in sports memorabilia – jerseys, mounted helmets, newspaper clippings – features a flat-screen TV, so you’ll be in clear view of the action no matter where you are seated.
