Coach's Sports Bar and Grill

Like Cheers, Mulligan's is a joint where people know the names of the north Houston patrons who swamp this place to observe sports (on three big-screen TVs), as well as participate in sports (well, recreation activities at least, with pool tables and a game room). To soak up the range of liquor offered at the full bar, Mulligan's offers a good menu of burgers and deli sandwiches.
