Most neighborhoods have a local favorite sports bar to go to and Pitstop Pub Sports Bar is no exception. While traveling between Temecula and Riverside we had a chance to pull off the I-215 by Newport for lunch. What a find! I wish our neighborhood bar was this nice. They have sports playing on different screens. They have pool tables. The menu has everything and of course they sport a few craft beers on tap as well. Perfect!
For the true test we ordered their famous Angus burgers with fries. Lynette was very helpful in helping me choose a beer. She suggested I try the Shocktop by Anheuser-Busch as I never tried it before. She was very quick to pour a couple of taste tester glasses to make sure I would be happy with the choice. It was OK for starters and I needed to check this one off my list. It is a light Belgian-style wheat ale with slight citrus taste.
The burgers came loaded and fresh from the kitchen behind the bar. These are good sized burgers with lettuce, tomato, grilled onion and provolone cheese. We ordered them without mayo. They were very filling. I highly recommend stopping here if you on the I-215. I hear their Nachos are fantastic too!
Great place to come see a football game. The whole staff pitches in to make sure their guests are well taken care of. You don’t always see this dedication at other establishments.
For my second beer I went with and old favorite that they also had on tap called Racer Five IPA from Bear Republic Brewing Co. This particular beer has won many awards. It is very full bodied.
