Guess which Milwaukee sports bar made America's latest top 10 list

Milwaukee's own Major Goolsby's scored a spot on yet another list of America's best sports bars.

TheDailyMeal.com's top 10 list places our hometown sports bar among top spots in Chicago, New York and Detroit. Here's what they had to say:

"Opened in 1970 and located less than a block from the Bradley Center, the home of Marquette basketball and the Milwaukee Bucks, Major Goolsby's is a city institution. With 45 HDTVs, it is especially vibrant on NFL Sundays, but is a great place to catch your favorite team every night of the week."

Major Goolsby's also received national attention in 2005 as the No. 4 pick in Sports Illustrated's Top 25 list.

What? Something is clearly wrong with this list. How did that great sports bar McGillycuddy's not make the list??

I see that Wills Northwoods Inn made the list too. It's the best Packer/Badger bar I've been to considering it is in a little residential neighborhood in Chicago.
MY kind of sports bar doesn't charge as much for beer and food as many of the trendier places in Milwaukee seem to do.

I don't think Milwaukee agrees with you. Every time I go in there for a pregame event or to watch a game the place is packed. Bartenders are always friendly and the food is great and comes out quick. I love their french fries, mozza stix and burgers. Goolsby's is easily the best sports bar in Milwaukee. Well done.

While Goolsby's is a fine bar and run well, it is easily the LAST place I think of when considering sports bars in Milwaukee to watch games. But then again, it has lasted longer than most sports bars in Milwaukee so it should get props for that alone.
