Lucky 13 Bar and Grill • The roadhouse with the red tractor out front may have plenty of good whiskeys and cheap beer, but it's known for its burgers.
Owner Jason Stucki was dubbed World Burger Champion in last year's World Food Championships, and while the winning Spicy Candied Bacon Cajun burger isn't on the menu, the popular Celestial Burger is. Keep plenty of napkins handy for this 7-ounce patty topped with house-smoked bacon, grilled onions, cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce.
The bar is host to events such as the Big Shiny Geek Show Pub Quiz every Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. And it claims to have an even better view of the fireworks than you can get at the nearby Spring Mobile Ballpark.
Maxwell's East Coast Eatery • It's a bar and a restaurant, serving New York-style, thin-crust pizzas and house-made pastas.
Eva • Bustling even on weekdays for the late-night happy hour, which serves the best meals from the dinner menu at this small-plate restaurant/cocktail lounge.
