4. Diesel Filling Station 870 N Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306

If you've ever been disappointed about the lack of spots that let you chow down on burgers and show off your intellectual power, your blues will be long will your availability on Thursdays 'cause you'll be playing Dirty South Trivia while sipping on a craft brew. This VaHi spot offers nightly events that will challenge your brain while you punish it with one-too-many Sazeracs.

Check in at the Atlanta Jets Fans table in front of the half-sports bar/half-pool hall to get $17 domestic beer buckets and 10% off any menu item while watching on two 12ft projection screens; that food deal includes the MOAB burger, blackened grouper, and loaded nachos, which are sure to end up all over Plaxico's leg.

6. Pub 71 4058 Peachtree Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30319

Helmed by a dude who was born in 1971 (get it?)... and who wanted to open a place where his friends and family could hang/ booze, this Irish-style drink spot's got more than just the usual taps (Sweetwater Red Hot Mama), and home-style eats like a Jack Daniel’s Smoked Beef Brisket Sandwich, and Shepherd’s Pie.

9. The Brewhouse Cafe 401 Moreland Ave, Atlanta, GA 30307

Modestly self-billed as "Atlanta's BEST International Sports Bar", Brewhouse is definitely at least among the top examples, as it made our list of Favorite 5 Sports Bars thanks to its comfortably divey interior, TVs galore, daily pint specials (Terrapin/SweetWater Mondays, Leinenkugel's Thursdays -- keep the glass!), and a month-long $20 large pizza/Miller Lite pitcher combo... wait, they figured out how to get beer inside those little pretzel rolls too?! Amazing.

10. Dantanna's 3400 Around Lenox Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30326

With plenty of flat screens, all-American beers, and locally sourced dishes that, while upscale, are reminiscent of tailgating eats, Dantanna's has you covered for the big game. A couple house specialities: beer-battered shrimp and heirloom Berkshire pork rib chop. If the game's got you fired up and you're feeling a bit more adventurous, go for the Heart Attack burger (ground beef topped with a sunny-side-up egg, a double order of thick-sliced hickory-smoked bacon & fried onions, served between two grilled cheese sandwiches).

11. The U Bar 3515 Camp Creek Pkwy, East Point, GA 30344
