Lavaca Street Bar has wall-to-wall TVs showing sporting events and reruns of Downton Abbey. Kidding, it’s all sports. Turf ’N’Surf is located within the bar, and serves po’boys, tacos, and other great bar food. If you’re the kind of person who gets annoyed about eating indoors when it’s sunny out, you’ll immediately stop complaining after you try the blackened chicken nachos.
