When you are miles away from your hometown, only two things can make you feel great: a care package from mom or your favorite football team on a TV screen the size of an RV.
For Philadelphia Eagles fans in Arizona, outside of Philly cheesesteaks being dropped by drone delivery, nothing beats watching the Eagles on a Sunday. This season, Philadelphia transplants have been swarming (flocking?) to Arizona sports bars to root for a team with short odds of winning their second Super Bowl.
The NFL title game is the most-wagered single sporting event in North America. It will be played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ, on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2023.
Recently we reviewed the best Buffalo Bills Bars in Arizona. This time we find the best Philadelphia Eagles Bars in Arizona.
Where Eagles Fans Can Watch Their NFL Team at the Best Philadelphia Eagles Bars in Arizona
Majerle’s Sports Grill
24 N. 2nd Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004
There’s possibly never been a more respected sports figure in Phoenix than “Thunder Dan” Majerle, a three-time NBA All-Star and two-time member of the All-Defensive team. Majerle had a name that was initially hard to pronounce, and he came from a place few had heard of, but when he outplayed bigger names on the 1988 U.S. Olympic team, Majerle tempted the Phoenix Suns, who drafted him with the 14th pick in the NBA Draft.
After 14 seasons, nine with Phoenix, Dan Majerle set aside his thunderous dunks and deadly three-point range and retired in Arizona. Even before he was done running up and down the hardwood, Dan had one and then two restaurants in Phoenix. Majerle’s has been a sports bar destination since the 1990s.
The downtown location on 2nd Street is run by Dan’s little bro, Jeff, who broke his sibling’s record for three-pointers in a season at Central Michigan University. Jeff now turns his attention to hops, not hoops: Majerle’s pours more than two dozen beers from their taps.
The food is pretty solid for a sports bar, but it’s the atmosphere that you love at Majerle’s, which offers NFL Sunday Ticket. That means the Arizona Cardinals, the Eagles, and nearly every other NFL game is live on the screen every week.
Philly’s Sports Grill
1826 N Scottsdale Rd, Tempe, AZ 85281
The neighborhood sports grill, which has been around since 2003, has four locations, including three in Tempe. A local Eagles group, the Eagles Zone AZ, gathers at one of the Tempe locations for Game Day, so expect a crowd who cheers loud and proud for Philadelphia.
Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the sports grill also has daily happy hour from 3 to 7 pm. If you feel like bringing your furry friend along to watch the football game, UFC match, or boxing fight, Philly’s Sports Grill has dog-friendly patios.
CAPS Sports Grill
1721 W. Rose Garden Lane, Phoenix, AZ 85027
Who can resist something called “Sunday Funday?” That’s on tap every week at CAPS, where fans of the Eagles can watch their favorite team while noshing on the self-proclaimed “best wings in the city.”
NFL Sunday Ticket is available, and drink specials are on the menu for the Sunday, Monday, and Thursday night games.
The 44 Sports Grill & Nightlife
4494 W. Peoria Ave Glendale, AZ 85302
The 44 gets 4.4 stars out of 5 from Google Reviews (yes, really). One reviewer raved:
“The servers knew me by name even though I had only been there a few times. They hold different events throughout the week and their food is incredible. I moved 2100 mi away and I still crave they’re tacos. Five tacos and a beer and a tip wasn’t even $20. I loved it there.”
The 44 is an entertainment venue on Fridays and Saturdays, with live bands or DJs, but on Sunday mornings, when the east coast games are kicking off, the bar area is filled with football fans. Try the tacos or the burgers, and you won’t be disappointed.
Crown Public House
333 E. Jefferson St. Phoenix, AZ 85004
A fantastic and convenient locale in downtown Phoenix, offering EVERY NFL game on Sundays and, of course, Monday Night Football. Your stomach will thank you for stopping here, Eagles rooters: the pizza, cheese sticks, and wings are rated highly on a bar menu that also includes the best beers and alcoholic drinks for enjoying NFL action.
