    Grand Prize's wallet friendly drinks, laid back vibe and kickass jukebox mean it will always have a place on this list. With Austin King's Yaki Snack Attack leading the kitchen, the food's good, too.

    Out of the 6 beers on tap, jacobins rouge sour ale is one of them. Not many bars in this town have sours on tap. I'm addicted. Try it.
