The most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner: football season. If you can’t make it to the game, Mount Pleasant has you covered with all the giant flat screens, cold beers, and bar snacks you need to cheer on your team.
1. Wild Wing Cafe
644 Coleman Blvd./1181 Oakland Market Rd.
Watching football and eating wings is a science at Wild Wing. Whether you’re in to college football or NFL, every game is playing, every weekend. Tell the host which game you want to watch, and they’ll make sure you’re seated with a great view of your team. Settle in, choose from one of 33 sauces for your wings, and one of 10+ craft beers.

2. Charleston Sports Pub
1909 N. Hwy. 17 Suite V
The TVs are big, the beers come in buckets, and the food is better than your average sports bar. From classic football snacks like stuffed jalapenos and potato skins to creative takes on bar food like pork belly sliders with Asian slaw and Sriracha mayo and shrimp tempura tacos with wasabi cream, you can try a new meal for each game (including play-offs).

3. Locals Bar
1150 Queensborough Blvd.
In a world of near-identical sports bars, Locals stands out. Instead of standard bar food, Locals serves up some of the best sushi in Mount Pleasant. It may seem strange to cheer on your team with a plate of sushi in place of buffalo wings, but try a Bad Boy roll with tempura lobster, cream cheese, cucumber, and mango and broaden your horizons.

4. Kickin’ Chicken
349 W Coleman Blvd.
The brand new Kickin’ Chicken aims to please all football fans—with enough televisions to ensure no one misses a play, an indoor/outdoor bar, and a game room to keep kids entertained. The huge selection of craft and domestic beers and 15 sauces and rubs doesn’t hurt either. Website.
