Phoenix Sports Restaurant

I have a hot tip on a bet that I just can’t keep to myself any longer! This bet is a sure thing. Are you ready for it? Here goes: I bet you can’t get anything other than a fantastic meal at the Phoenix Sports Restaurant!

Phoenix Sports Restaurant at the Phoenix OTB is anything but a typical gaming parlor; instead, it is a family-friendly restaurant with great food and insanely low prices where you can also bet on horses! The Phoenix Sports Restaurant is conveniently located at 228 Huntley Road in Phoenix, right off of 481. They are open seven days a week for you to dine in or take out.

At Phoenix Sports Restaurant, you don’t need to know anything about horses or gambling to have a great time. There are a variety of horse races running nearly every 20 minutes from all over the country, all year long. If you want to place a bet, the friendly staff will gladly walk you through the simple process. Placing a bet (even a tiny one) will give you something to do as you enjoy your scrumptious meal and you just might leave a little richer! Phoenix Sports Restaurant is family owned and operated and they strive to ensure they have a family-friendly restaurant with fantastic food!

Kyle and I arrived at Phoenix Sports Restaurant on a pleasantly warm August evening. We were immediately greeted by the friendly staff, including the owners! This father and son duo go above and beyond to make sure every single guest feels welcome. We decided to start our meal with a sampler platter, a super generous portion of fried deliciousness. This dish was piled high with zucchini fries (amazing), fried mushrooms and cauliflower, chicken tenders, and chicken wings, both breaded and un-breaded and served with a variety of dipping sauces. This dish is definitely enough to feed a crowd! For an entrée Kyle decided on the chicken parmesan, a ginormous helping, a spectacularly breaded chicken breast, topped with melted cheese and marinara sauce all served on a huge bed of spaghetti. Like all of the other dishes, this one is enough for dinner and lunch for a day or two! Every bite was absolute perfection! For my dinner, I decided I was missing the State Fair, and luckily Phoenix Sports Restaurant had just want I needed to lift my spirits! It was the NY State Fair Special featuring a dozen steamed clams, a perfectly cooked ribeye, a heaping portion of salt potatoes, and an ear of corn loaded with butter. Admittedly it was a ton of food but I ate as much of this deliciousness as I could. Overall this meal was a 10 out of 10! 

While we were waiting for our meals we also chatted with another couple who had sailed all over New York through the Erie Canal. They were staying at a local marina (Pi-rates Cove) where they were offered a shuttle to Phoenix Sports Restaurant. This couple was so impressed with their meal that they told me they would be sure to make a special trip here a few times a summer! It’s no gamble that you will be getting a fresh and delicious meal every time at Phoenix Sports Restaurant. Every dish is cooked to order and everything is homemade. They never cut corners at Phoenix Sports Restaurant where they use only the best fresh ingredients; even the fish has been hand-selected by a seafood expert and is delivered through the week! They take pride in knowing that every customer leaves happy and full!
