Winter in Pittsburgh can seem like the dreariest time of the year for some, but not for sports fans. From the Super Bowl, to hockey’s stretch run, to March Madness, to the Daytona 500, there are plenty of events to keep Pittsburgh sports faithful entertained. By why watch them at home when you go to Redd Dawgs All-Star Clubhouse in Belle Vernon and get a great meal while you cheer?
About Redd Dawgs
Redd Dawgs All-Star Clubhouse opened in March 1998, and has been serving people from Westmoreland and surrounding counties ever since. Their tagline is: “If sports is your religion, this is your cathedral.” Rightfully so, that is the vibe you get when walking into Redd Dawgs. The inside of the restaurant is modeled after an arena or stadium concourse, and the walls are covered in various sports memorabilia. Their 20 HD TVs and two 10-foot big screens don’t hurt the atmosphere either.
Food at Redd Dawgs
Redd Dawgs menu is expansive. The menu includes over 80 items, and even the pickiest eaters will be able to find something they enjoy. While the tempting teasers, gut bustin’ sandwiches, and award-winning wings are fare you would generally expect to see in a sports bar, Redd Dawgs offers more than just these staples.
Their menu also includes pizza, salads, meat and seafood meals, soup, pasta, burgers, sides, desserts, and a kid’s menu.
I’m a traditionalist when it comes to sports bar food, and the main draw for me is always appetizers. There isn’t a bad app choice on the menu. The buffalo chicken dip and mozzarella stuffed zucchini are my personal favorites, but their various kinds of loaded fries and piled nachos are equally as appealing.
Drinks at Redd Dawgs
For some, even more important than the food at a sports bar is the beer. Redd Dawgs has 16 beers on tap and 10 rotating craft beer selections for the traditionalist and adventurous drinkers.
However, not everyone is a fan of beer, and Redd Dawgs understands that. They also offer a selection of eight wines, and four house drinks. I personally want to try the Cinnamon Roll Martini cocktail, but the Banana Split and Pomegranate Cosmopolitan both sound good too.
If you’re the designated driver for the evening, you’re under 21, or you’re just not a fan of alcohol, Redd Dawgs also has milk, coffee, tea, iced tea, and pop. They do have Pepsi products which is a thumbs down for fans of Coke, but there are enough options that you can find something you’ll like. When all else fails, get a water.
Pricing at Redd Dawgs
Pricing at Redd Dawgs is so affordable for the food you get. If you’re an app person like me, most of those cost between $7 and $9, and the amount of food you get is sufficient for a meal for one. The most expensive app on the menu is a BBQ Rib Sampler for $11, but you get a ½ slab of ribs. That’s plenty for a meal.
Not surprisingly, the most expensive thing on the menu period is the full rack of BBQ Baby Back Ribs, which will run you $24. The seafood, meat, and pasta dishes are, of course, more than anything else on the menu, but even those probably won’t break the bank if you’re in a “treat yourself” mood.
Just as a reference point, on my last visit, I split two apps with someone and got a pop, and the total was under $20, before the tip.
