On a Wednesday night just after the grand opening of Mavericks Sports Pub, my husband and I decided to try out the new hot spot that once held Maddy’s Again.
The spacious restaurant and bar space has been revamped and remodeled. The floor plan is now open, and the bar easily mixes with the clean, minimalist restaurant space. With both high tops and comfy low tables, the vibe is cool and sophisticated.
The place was booming with people hanging out at the bar and spilling into tables. We took a seat at the first high top we saw and settled in with our menus.
The mix of appetizers, sandwiches and salads was impressive and unique. The separate drink menu also seemed carefully chosen and substantial. We decided to order a bottle of wine and look at the menu a bit further.
I finally decided on a three-cheese panini with provolone, feta and parmesan cheese. Once we gave our helpful waitress our order, we relaxed with a glass of wine. There were lots of flat screen televisions spaced throughout the restaurant with a mix of great football games.
When our waitress brought our dinners, we were excited to try them. I am a big fan of paninis, and this one was something I had never tried before. It seemed a simple combination of ingredients, but when I tried a bite I was amazed. The melted cheese was flavorful and thick — just perfect for an amazing panini. The bread was toasty and warm with a just-pressed feel.
My husband had ordered just the mozzarella sticks for his meal and was still a bit hungry afterward, so we decided to order a dessert. We ordered the giant chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream. When it arrived, the cookie was the size of the plate. Warm and gooey, the dessert was a perfect ending to a great dinner.Mavericks Sports Pub 164 S. Jordan Creek Parkway 226-8407 Hours: Mon. – Fri.: 11 a.m. – 2 a.m. Sat. – Sun.: 8:30 a.m. – 2 a.m.
