Pour House takes the whole bracket from Wing-Dinger Buffalo Bros

Posted 11:40am on Wednesday, Apr. 21, 2010

After more than 3 1/2 weeks of voting, it came down to a buzzer beater.

Of course.

And much like powerhouse Duke edged Butler in the NCAAs, longtime local favorite Pour House beat back a furious late rally from an upstart, Buffalo Bros, to earn the title of DFW.com's Best Damn Sports Bar.

Voting was going strong right up to our 5 p.m. Monday deadline, and PH fans (1,185 votes) outclicked the Wing-Dinger regional champ Buffalo Bros (1,172), but just barely.

In the end, voters chose not just their favorite sports bar, but arguably their favorite Fort Worth hangout.

Since moving from its perch in downtown Fort Worth, the Pour House has gained an even more loyal following. The swanky West Seventh Street spot may still have that new-car smell, but it also has the same friendly Pour House vibe, plus flat-screens everywhere you look, giant salads and that red pepper penne pasta we love so much.

Buffalo Bros, located in the heart of the TCU area, is another great story of a little place with a big following. That devotion might have something to do with their plump and tangy wings and tasty thin-crust pizzas.

With so many bars and restaurants serving up a great sports-watching experience these days, it's not easy to stand out from the crowd. Congrats to our other Final Four winners -- Whiskey & Rye and Jakes -- and all 32 bars in our bracket.

And now, if you'll excuse, we've got some wings to eat and NBA playoff games to watch. Cheers!
