Priority Seating / Reservations Comments:

The ESPN Zone does not open before 11:30 on weekdays, and there was quite a few early lunchers gathering outside the doors.

Time of Wait:

Negligible wait once the doors were opened.

Food Review:

I had a burger, my kids had a hot dog and the cheeseburger sliders, respectively. The burger was grilled within an inch of it's life, making it perhaps one of the worst burgers I've ever had. The sides (baked beans and seasoned fries) were better. In fact, the baked beans were pretty good. I'm not a fan of seasoned fries, but the seasoning was light enough to make them acceptable. My son, who had the cheeseburgers, had the same problem as I did with his meal. I offered to have it sent back for something else, but he didn't want to do that. I should have insisted, since all he did was stare at his food and mope.

Service Review:

Service was good, though a bit slow at times. There was never any problems with any of our requests.

Atmosphere Review:

The main features of this restaurant are the open grill at the back end and the live studio where they broadcast ESPN sports shows from. A schedule of the upcoming shows was printed on the placemat - it looked like they try to average a show every week or so. The show was scheduled to start at 12:00 when we were there, but they were still setting up when we left, which was near 1:00. There's a minimum of $10 per person during a show, but our bill came in a dollar or two below that, but they didn't press us for the difference, either because the show hadn't started or because we were so close to the minimum anyway.

Other Comments:

They were out of crayons for the kid's placemats. Not that it mattered, because most of the activities were poorly reproduced (they make new placemats every day - great for sports stories, but evidently murder on the kid's side - we couldn't make out the numbers for the connect the dots!) I guess they don't get many kids. If you're a sports nut and have a palate for their distinctive way of cooking, you'll probably enjoy this place. In our case, we probably won't be going back.
