Rook's Gameday Bar & Grill

Nestled way back in the parking lot of a La Quinta Inn, Rook's Gameday Bar and Grill is a sprawling sports bar / music venue with pool tables -- free to play, all day every day -- darts, live music and some damn good food. Recommended are the "Wowza" wings, breaded and whole -- delicious. Rather than covering the place with kitschy crap as bars of this type sometimes do, they classed it up a few notches; framed art adorns the walls. On a given night you might hear rock, blues, or cover bands spanning several decades of pop music. The nearby hotel makes for an interesting mix of people as well -- road-weary travelers of all kinds looking for a show or something to eat will find Rook's to be an excellent way to fill their time and stomachs.
