Best Neighborhood Bar (South County) 

Hessler's Pub & Grill

A few years back someone put up south county's most pointless sign. It officially denotes the cluster of stores at Baptist Church and Tesson Ferry roads as Plaza 21. But nobody refers to it as that, ever. When describing a store within the strip mall, locals say, "Oh, it's in that plaza with Hessler's," and everybody knows where that is. Hessler's has been around for a quarter-century, but it feels like it's been there forever. It looks like it, too: It's like being in your buddy's wood-paneled basement. Natural Light's on tap, but so are Blue Moon, Boulevard and AmberBock. And during happy hour (weekdays from 4 to 7 p.m.) longnecks are $2, pitchers are $5, and appetizers are half-off. And that's really cheap on an already cheap menu — heck, we couldn't find anything on there over $9. You'll have plenty of cash left over to buy one more Nat Light and a red T-shirt with Hessler's name on the front pocket and "Cubs Suck" on the back.
