New Hyde Park’s best kept secret is getting out. Thomas Joseph’s Sports Bar And Grill located at 271-11 Union Turnpike in New Hyde Park has a great menu and beer selection for everyone to enjoy.
Right now the staff is boasting of their Thanksgiving Eve party.
The owner, Thomas Joseph Schanz Jr., said, “There will be a DJ and dancing, everyone will have lots of fun!” The Thanksgiving Eve party will be held on Wednesday Nov. 23rd at 9 p.m. until 4 a.m.
As the holidays move along, and some may seek a break from the kitchen, Schanz pointed out that four weeks ago they added a new item on their menu. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, they are offering, “Weekend Rib Eye Madness.” The offer features a 16 ounce rib eye steak on the bone, a potato, homemade soup, a salad and a vegetable side and a dessert all for the price of $19.95.
Schanz said that offer is not too good to be true. He said their soups are always homemade and notes that he buys the whole loin from the butcher every Friday and has it delivered.
He was happy to brag about their specials. “We have a sports menu for whenever a New York team is playing. They’re good specials.” He said it’s all year round. “It’s almost like a five dollar menu with drink specials,” and added, “Even if the Rangers are playing in L.A., it counts.”
“We make a jalapeño corn potato chowder that is to die for, people call up and ask for it,” he boasted.
“Everything is from scratch. It doesn’t pay to go half way. If you’re going to do it, do it right,” said Schanz.
They have all new kitchen equipment “which goes a long way,” he said. Schanz is also proud of everything that happens in the kitchen, from the flat iron steak, to their high quality jumbo shrimp, famous blackened chicken sandwich, and their big succulent buffalo wings. He noted, “You can’t beat my prices.”
He also point out that customers can now order their food via Grubhub for pick up and deliveries, they have the lotteries Quickdraw and the New York Lottery in house.
As always, they have the now famous Thomas Jospeh’s Sports menu to offer whenever there is a game playing, which features $5 for simple and simply great pub food, like a $5 cheeseburger, $5 for three hot dogs or for a bowl of chili menu, during football games on Sundays.
They also have their regular happy hour with a small buffet every day of the week with drink specials.
Schanz also pointed that the bar is always wide open to private parties, theme parties, and office events.
