There are plenty of televisions available to watch Sunday football games. The bar sometimes has a lot of undergraduate students. It is in a strip mall but overall a good sports bar.

Famous is a great sports bar close to our house. They have lots of televisions to watch games on the weekends. The food is okay but what you would expect at a sports bar.

Yes, the management has changed, but for the better!!! Better bartenders, better servers, and better food. Famous is great for watching football on Saturdays, and even during the week, the food is really good and the specials are awesome.

This was my first and last experience in the Famous Pub. I walked in, had one beer because it was "last call". (Bartender made this very clear as he served me a beer) The bar's closing time was 3:00 a.m., and it was exactly 3:00 a.m.

Atlanta has many great and good sports bars. But this is not one. Located in a run-down section of Toco Hills, some people might like it, because it is a dive. The crowd looks scary, even in the daylight hours. We just wanted to finish
