1. Looney’s Pub
What Makes It Special: Cooking up some of the best wings in town, Looney’s has three distinct bars, each with an abundance of flat-screen TVs tuned to all the best college and pro games. It attracts fans of many different teams. Try the Old Bay wings, a Maryland staple and just one of several flavors. All Looney's wings are crisp, juicy, and perfectly coated with the venerable seasoning. Your basic unassuming sports bar, Looney's is a comfortable place, inexpensive place to catch a game.
Where It Is: 2900 O’Donnell St.
What Makes It Special: Its purple patio outdoor area is perfect for fall Saturdays or Sundays, and its location near M&T Bank Stadium means it’s generally packed with enthusiastic Ravens fans before and after the game. Mother's is better known for its great scene than its great food, but it does have solid wings and get-the-job-done quality bar food.
Where It Is: 1113 S. Charles St.
3. Pickles Pub
What Makes It Special: There's something inherently cool about watching football in the very shadow of M&T Bank Stadium. Pickles has the requisite flat-screen TVs, good bar food, and cold beer to make this list - and this one too.
Where It Is: 520 Washington Blvd.
What Makes It Special: Named Best Sports Bar by Baltimore magazine in 2008, NcDevin’s is home to some of the friendliest bartenders in town. While it’s a smallish place, there are TVs everywhere you look, and the bartenders are more than happy to put on your game. Warning: During the NFL season, Steelers fans congregate here to root on the black and gold. Also be warned: NcDevin's is usually out of at least one thing on the menu, and one liquor behind the bar. Know that going in, and you'll have a great time.
