For an outlet mall in the middle of a forsaken part of Somerville, Assembly Square has proven a surprisingly alluring detour. Sports fans looking to take a break from the shops fill this spacious sports bar, named after one of the city’s most beloved legends. Dozens of TVs dominate the space, matched by a state-of-the-art sound system that makes it impossible not to follow the game. (True agnostics can head outside to the spacious patio overlooking Mystic River.) Higher-end dinner options dot the menu, including the New York strip and the lobster roll, while the #25 burger is a study in excess: Vermont cheddar, crispy pork belly, fried egg and hoisin sauce atop a half-pounder. Among the near-40 beers on draft are many regional drafts, as well as more than a dozen bottled beers.
