More on Glory Days Grill.

By Michelle Gienow | Posted 4/14/2004

Sports bar dining tends to be pretty grim, but if you have a sports-viewing need that requires 25 televisions, the Glory Days Grill serves up decent grub. Of course, in a sports bar you must eat chicken wings; the Glory wings ($6.99 for 10) dare to differ from the Tabasco-drenched standard. The sweet, mustardy sauce packs enough latent heat to please all but the most die-hard of suicide wing fans. All-American burgers are the logical next course, and Glory's grill does a superb job on its straight-up hamburger ($6.99): eight ounces of good ground beef cooked perfectly to order, for friggin' once, on a hefty grilled bun with lettuce, tomato, and onion. All sandwiches come with either terrific hand-cut fries or parsley red-skin potatoes, and it's tough to choose.

Even better is the crab cake sandwich, which we hereby declare the best $8.99 crab cake in town. It's large, lumpy, and interestingly spiced (no Old Bay here), broiled to golden glory. Another superlative goes to Mom's Macaroni and Cheese ($2.79), which is so astonishingly cheese-laden that you actually have to hunt a little for the macaroni. It's goo-ily, glop-ily good, just like everything the Glory Days Grill cooked up for our table.
