The Place: Mile 277 Tap & Grill (10701 Watson Road, Sunset Hills; 314-645-3277)

The Hours: Happy hour is offered Monday through Friday from 2 to 7 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday from 11 am. to 5 p.m.

The Deal: $3 happy-hour drinks including Smirnoff cocktails, domestic bottled beer, Big Dawg domestic draughts, rail liquor and house wine. More than fifteen options of half-off appetizers ranging from wings to tacos.

The dining room.
The Scene: Mile 277 isn't just a biker bar -- it's a full-out chopper-themed restaurant, complete with hand-painted murals on the wall and installments of said hogs, including the neon-pink-lit one that adorns the bar with the phrase "Putting WOW back in WOW!!!!" above it.

The Food: Seventeen appetizers is a lot to choose from, so we went with our gut on this one and tried the grilled portobello quesadilla, some potato skins and the house jumbo chicken wings. The quesadilla came out oozing with melted cheddar jack, filled with roasted corn and pico de gallo. Served with salsa and sour cream, it proved wholesome enough that we didn't even miss the meat (though carnivores can add chicken, seasoned beef, steak or shrimp).

The "Sturgis" potato skins also hit the mid-day hunger spot, appropriately portioned into manageable wedges and topped with all the fixins: pulled pork, cheddar cheese, green onion and barbecue sauce. My dining partner and I had to fight over the last bite.

Wow I'm surprised "RFT" didn't say it's "racist" like they seem to do every other article...

I almost drove off the overpass on Watson once from the shock of seeing maybe 1000 motorcycles in their lot. WOW! I have wanted to go check it out since then.
