3 super places to catch the games in Manteca


The Bulletin

So you’ve got your team colors, your face paint, and your foam finger.

Where are you going to watch the game?

If you don’t feel like watching the game with friends, and aren’t the type of person to host the NFL playoff facilities, there are plenty of places in Manteca where you can enjoy the fun and spirit that sports bring without the hassle of worrying about breaking the vase on your buddy’s coffee table or one of your friends doing the same at your house.

Here are a few ideas for those searching for a built-in party:

*ROOKIE’S SPORTS BAR – On top of having the biggest televisions in town – a pair of massive screens that often show multiple games simultaneously – they also have other televisions that show all of the games that are being played at the time.

And they have the most space of any bar in town to house you, your friends, and the loud group of guys rooting from the other team that are glaring every time you erupt in cheers.

So bring your friends, and their friends, and enjoy some appetizers and adult beverages while watching whoever it is that you’re rooting for make it to the conference championship game.

You just can’t go wrong. 1251 E. Yosemite Ave., Manteca.

*MOUNTAIN MIKE’S PIZZA – For some reason pizza and football just seem to go together. And don’t let anybody tell you that pizza isn’t good for you – it has all the major food groups in one place.

But where you eat such a thing also plays a big difference in your experience as well.

For decades Mountain Mike’s Pizza has been the go-to place for sports teams and sports fans looking to catch a glimpse of their favorite teams. With on tap beer and enough televisions to cover every game being played at that moment – even during sports season crossover periods – it’s a popular spot for the pizza fans who just want something other than their home to watch the game.

No cleanup. Plenty of televisions. Cold beer. Pizza galore. What more could you possibly as for? 1120 N. Main Street, Manteca.

*CHUCK’S PLACE – Is there a better place to watch a game than an actual sports bar? With its relatively new location – complete with tables and enough open space to pack all of your friends inside – this haunt is where you want to be on game day. The food that’s available is far better than your average pub fare, and the selection is something of an anomaly even though they have all of the standard bar staples like nachos and burgers – albeit with a unique spin. You won’t be disappointed. 1447 Historical Plaza Way, Manteca.
