Once in awhile, we like to catch college and Knicks games at Madison Square Garden (MSG). Yes, we know the Knicks are hard to watch right now (they won last night!) but attending a game a great way to catch up with friends and enjoy pre-game meals. Here are two places we recommend for a quick bite to eat before games.Mustang Harry’s 352 7th Avenue New York, NY 10001 Just two blocks from MSG, Mustang Harry’s has been the go-to spot for us to grab a quick bite to eat before many games this season. We always enjoy coming here for the great service and good food. For those of you who enjoy grabbing a drink, there are over 30 beers to choose from and there is Happy Hour every day from 5pm-9pm. With over 20 high-definition TV’s throughout the restaurant, Mustang Harry’s is also a great place to watch games with friends.
When you step inside Hill Country Barbecue (not to confuse it with Hill Country Chicken on Broadway) on West 26th Street, you’ll enjoy all the fun signs, pictures on the walls and great overall vibe. However, the most appealing thing you’ll notice is the aroma of delicious food!
You get a choice of meats (briskets, prime rib, chicken), sides and trimmings (hot, cold & house specials) along with market items and your choice of drinks. Don’t forget to save room for dessert such as ice cream and pudding. As you can see, there is plenty to choose from so make sure to bring your appetite. You won’t be disappointed!
