Let's face it---I LOVE sports bars and neighborhood hangouts. I love their vibe, energy and just downright friendliness, and when I hear that one has gone beyond the norm to offer quality fare, I'm there! Dallas Cowboys linebacker Akin Ayodele and some other sports investors have pumped new money into the old Doug and Bruski's place in the Shops at Willow Bend, and reinvented it as Jerseyville Classic. My lovely wife the Rock Star and I have visited a couple of times, and are impressed by the entire operation, not the least of which is the quality of the food.
Okay, say you want something other than wings, burgers, or your standard bar food appetizers? How about Adovo Chicken pasta: thin spaghetti covered in a delicious red pepper cream sauce and parmesan cheese and served with grilled chicken and steamed broccoli? Sound appetizing? Well, it is and so is the grilled meatloaf, served with red chili mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. Jerseyville Classic has several other unsportsbarlike enticing entrees, but if you just want the basics, try the mushrooms and swiss burger or the wonderful new sliders or the Zoof (cheese, etc) fries. Lots of TV's, of course, for your sports watching needs, and a very accomodating staff, not to mention $5 pitchers of Ziegenbock beer all day every day, and you can see why this place is filling up with happy customers so far.

LIFE IS TOO SHORT FOR MEDIOCRE FOOD!!!
