Winner: Lucy Cooper's Texas Ice House
16080 San Pedro Ave.
Lucy Cooper's is taking its Naughty Bingo show on the road with plans to open a second location in New Braunfels later this year. We're guessing no small part of that expansion is driven by locals' love for the 21-and-over spot's bar grub, which includes signature items such as clothesline bacon and tin can nachos along with the expected — and well-prepared — pizzas, burgers and wings. While the food at plenty of bars is an afterthought, it's clear Lucy Cooper's takes pride in the plates that come out of its kitchen.
