Winking Lizard Tavern Restaurant Review

: Winking Lizard Tavern is a Cleveland chain of sports-beer bars serving up standard pub fare. Part of the fun of this establishment is the lingo. For example, fried pickles become "Lizard Freckles," and chicken breast sandwiches are found under the menu heading "Chicken Chest." There are several varieties of burgers, wraps, sandwiches and salads. The Lizard is also known for its wings, ranging in heat from mild to Fire in the Hole; they also branch out to teriyaki and garlic territory. The World Tour of Beers taunts sturdy drinkers to sample over 100 suds during the course of a year.
