Redskins Bar Watching: Hard Times (Fairfax)

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Monday, October 1, 2007

Sure I love the Wizards. But its football season and Redskins time. Every week I go to a different place to watch the 1:00 NFL games and/or the Redskins game somewhere in the DC metro area I'll tell you how it goes. Go Skins!!!

Hard Times Cafe
4069 Chain Bridge Road
Fairfax, VA 22030

Sunday, September 30th, 1:00 Games (BYE WEEK)

TVs & Games:
Limited TV view, Most Games, Bad Channel Management

In the billiards section, there are enough TVs to see all the games at 1:00 or 4:00. Most other seats have very limited TV views. You can see 2 games, but not all of them unless you walk around a bit. The TVs are nice though but not huge. They had a big problem with changing games in the middle and constantly screwing up what was on which tv.

All Ages

$2.00 Domestic Drafts & Bottles
Includes Yuengling. Also have Root Beer on tap which is good.

Cheap Regular Prices
They will bring out a sampler of their 4 kinds of chili if you ask for it. The chili dogs/burgers are really good and pretty cheap. Definatly reccommend it, same food at the other locations.

Very friendly. Manager even welcomed us. Although it was their 1st day open. Service is sure to decline.

Tough to find, and grand opening. People probably don't even know it exists

How Early Do I Need To Get There:
Whenever You Want
Until it becomes more well known, you can get there whenever you want.

The place is in an old home. It is really cool and they have several sections. A bunch of pool tables & arcades make it fun. They need to work on their TV channel changing policy. If you want to watch ONE game, then it is pretty cool.

Hard Times has cheap food & drink and fun games to play, but is pretty bad place to watch football. I'd recommend going there for maybe a Monday night game but stay away on Sunday. I won't go back...for football
