We all have our favorite sports bars, the place you can meet friends and watch your favorite sports team while enjoying chicken wings, burgers and your beverage of choice.

Of course, there are the major national and state-wide chains such as Duffy's, Beef O'Brady's and Hooters that are extremely popular with sports fans. They probably would make this list - but we wanted to stick with the true local places that can double as a neighborhood bar.

Even places such as Applebee's and Chili's always have sports on their TVs and certainly serve sports bar chow but truly are not sports bars.

Chicken wings are always a favorite of patrons at any sports bar. © HANDOUT Chicken wings are always a favorite of patrons at any sports bar.

We also did not include NBA icon Michael Jordan's restaurant, 1000 North in Jupiter, because it's not a sports bar. Anyone there ordering nachos and Bud Lite will be escorted to the door.

Same for the three restaurants that make up Charlie & Joe's at Love Street, the Joe being Joe Namath of Super Bowl III fame who has called Jupiter/Tequesta home for 30 years.

We wanted to focus on Palm Beach County and probably will expand this list to include sports bars in south Florida - and the entire state - in the near future.

Most importantly, we welcome input from all of you on your special sports bar no matter where you live. Or trashing us for not including it and mentioning some of the ones on this list. Hey, if you live at Duffy's and love it, tell us we struck out on this list and why.

With that said, here is our Top 10 list (in no special order) culled from hours of extensive research at various sports bars in Palm Beach County. Hey, it's a dirty job but somebody had to do it:

The Woods,  Jupiter

Whether you think this is a sports bar or not - and even if you never will be able to afford a meal here - this place belongs on the list. Quoting the establishment's website: "After years of meals on the road, he decided to bring his vision of an elevated sports bar to life at home in Jupiter."

The Woods is Tiger Woods' sports bar and the atmosphere reflects that. © Joe Forzano, The Palm Beach Post The Woods is Tiger Woods' sports bar and the atmosphere reflects that.

The he, of course, is Tiger Woods, who lives down the street on Jupiter Island.

Obviously, the attraction here is as much hoping Woods or some other pro sports celebrity will be at the place when you are dining as the food itself. 

Address: 129 Soundings Ave., Jupiter

Boston's on the Beach, Delray Beach

When Boston teams are successful, so are bars that cater to Boston teams. That means Boston's on the Beach has been wildly popular the last 20 years. If you want to watch a big game involving the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins - and there have been plenty in the last two decades - Boston's is the place to be.

Address: 40 South Ocean Boulevard, Delray Beach

Snuggery, Palm Beach Gardens

It's a Steeler and West Virginia bar, but fans of all teams show up for the games. Little pricey but the food consistently gets good reviews.

Address: 2556 PGA Blvd. Palm Beach Gardens.

Carolina Ale House, Boynton Beach

Great menu. Drinks always deliver. Killer TV layout inside the restaurant or in the covered patio, so you can watch whatever game you want to watch and have a great view of the action. Bring your appetite (plus a few friends), and try the Carolina Queso Loaded Nachos. Enormous and tasty.

Address: 365 N Congress Ave, Boynton Beach

Hijinks Sports Grill, Boca Raton

Good food. Good drinks. Good atmosphere. Make sure to try the Habanero Ranch & Honey Mustard Sriracha BBQ baked wings. Upscale casual. Grab a seat at the bar or hi-top or table. Or even reserve a VIP table on the weekend or for a big UFC fight. 

131 Southeast Mizner Blvd., Boca Raton

McKenna’s Place, Palm Springs

By far has the best wings one of our writers has ever had in South Florida. Also a great place to go to watch college football games when places like Buffalo Wild Wings or Duffy’s are too crowded. This place should be more popular than it is. Great food and a fun environment. The burgers are always good, but go for the Baja Shrimp Burrito and you won't be disappointed. Exceptional specials and better service.

Address: 4068 Forest Hill Blvd., Palm Springs

Stadium Grill, Jupiter

Situated just across the street from Roger Dean Stadium, this is a hot spot during spring training when the Marlins and Cardinals are practicing and playing. It has a ton of TVs inside and outside. The food is great and they tend to give you a LOT of it. Definitely more of a family environment in comparison to some of the bars that cater more to younger crowds.

Address: 1203 Town Center Drive, Jupiter

Kirby's Sports Grille, Juno Beach

The top comments about this place always laud the crab cakes. In fact, they are having  a 16th Anniversary Special where on Wednesdays it's $16 crab cake day.

And they always have entertaining commercials on local radio.

Address: 841 Donald Ross Road, Juno Beach

Brogues Irish Pub, Lake Worth

An Irish bar with an Aussie twist. Forget wings and fries; this place has class. Brogues Down Under is owned by Tania, Emily and Rod Regan, who say, "Our kitchen is featuring long time in-house executive Chef Joseph Angelucci, winner of the 2010 People’s Choice Award Chef, formerly chef at Secrets Piano Bar & Grill at the Windsor Gardens Hotel, as well as South Shores Tavern & Patio Bar." 

Address: 621 Lake Ave, Lake Worth.
