The boys are away from Pittsburgh this weekend so Heinz Field will be dark Sunday, but we made a list of five great places to watch the Steelers game this Sunday. Maybe we’ll see yinz at one of these places this weekend!
Carson City Saloon is housed in a former bank building in Southside and full of lots of delicious bar food and libations perfect for taking in a Steeler game. Good wings, even better beer prices and lots of true Steeler fans make this the ideal place to spend a Sunday afternoon during football season. 1401 E. Carson St., 412-481-3203
If you are a nervous eater, you’ll want to go to Peter’s Pub in Oakland for their extensive bar menu. You can build your own burger, have a buffalo chicken wrap or traditional bar fare like a basket of fries or crispy provolone sticks. There’s lots of beer to choose from and plenty of cocktail choices too. 116 Oakland Ave., 412-681-7465
If you need plenty of drinks to stay calm during a typical Steeler nail-biter, you’ll want to head to Buckhead’s in Station Square. Sunday brings $6 personal pitchers all day and $3 domestic 16 oz. drafts all day. You’ll want to order some championship nachos in either classic or southwest style with BBQ beer brisket. Also noteworthy are the pepperoni rolls, egg rolls glistening with garlic butter and stuffed full with pepperoni, mozzarella, provolone and deep fried. 225 W. Station Square Dr., 412-232-3101
