Clay’s Sports Cafe – Hot Teriyaki Wings

4. Clay’s Sports Cafe

There are ample TVs so there’s no bad spot in the house, they have plenty of great pitcher selections, and oh yeah, have we mentioned those wings? You can’t go wrong with any of the sauces, but some staff favorites are Hot Lemon Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, and Teriyaki.
