Home Court Advantage: Westies is the best-looking sports bar in Columbus, and it’s also one of the largest. This handsome newcomer offers an off-the-cretin-path Brewery District patio plus two distinct, bar-equipped and smartly designed rooms. Combine that with uncommonly friendly service plus two dozen craft taps and 19 well-positioned TVs, and you have an instant all-star.
Slam Dunk Snack: Westies’ homemade nachos succeed where so many corner-cutters fail. They’re crisped-to-order and topped with seared and spice-rubbed pork that‘s as tender and juicy as it is flavorful. Gilding the lily are fresh guacamole, “ancho creme sauce,” pico de gallo and melted cheddar ― meaning the only thing missing is you … and plenty of napkins.
