Jefferson’s is a new family sports pub/restaurant in Madison, located at 7193 Hwy 72. They are open 7 days a week.

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the food is what you would expect from a Sports Restaurant. The quality of service and food is well above average, especially for the value represented.

I encourage you to give them a try.

We decided to spend the evening at PiNZ instead of our normal spot for the Fourth of July Fireworks. Ideally located in Bridge Street for the affair, overall we had a really good time. Unfortunately that meant going to the bartenders regularly for our drinks and food as the wait staff seemed unable to actually show up for our group. To be honest, there were only a dozen of us or so, on the patio, so we might have been easy to miss. The saving grace was Theresa who handled us with cool and calm and made sure we were sated, even if she was taking care of us from the bar because the wait staff just didn’t want to be there.. The bad news is the service on the patio was absolutely terrible...

WiFi in Huntsville Area (updated)

  • WiFi has become a staple of life for most of us in the Rocket City, and an absolute necessity for many of us. For example, we could not do what we do here at HSVexplorer without generous use of free WiFi available at many locations, or our portable hotspots. We have found that some places are much better at this than others. In fact, many although offering free WiFi are so frustrating or slow as to not be worth trying.

This article will be an ongoing work where we list ease of use, ping times, download and upload speeds, and general comments for the places we visit and use WiFi. We are using for all ratings, and working with the Arab server for all tests.

Rocket Harley Bike Night 12 April 2012

Thursday night at Knuckleheads in Madison, Alabama saw another great bike night sponsored by Rocket Harley of Madison. The band, Seducing Alice, was rocking those attending.

The bike nights at Knuckleheads are always a good time. It is difficult to write anything that hasn’t already been said. The bands are great, the food is great, and Rocket Harley makes sure there is fun. The servers at Knuckleheads are fantastic.

The one area we haven’t reported enough on has been the unsung heroes of Knuckleheads, the cooks and prep folks working in the kitchen. They bust their humps and take pride in ensuring your food is to your liking. Thanks to them, I am not going to waste away anytime soon.

Sam from Rocket Harley came out and introduced the band, made announcements and then visited tables and...

Knuckleheads Bike Night 29 March 2012

JD and the Bad Boys

The first Bike night of 2012 for Knuckleheads Sports Bar and Restaurant in Madison, AL was well attended and the JD and the Bad Boys band was rocking the crowd out on the patio. Knuckleheads has been bringing in some of the best bands in the area for their Bike Nights and other evening events they arrange. You just never know what the next great band to entertain the crowd is going to be but I’ve never been disappointed by the quality of musical talent they’ve selected.  I’m looking forward to seeing if the next Bike Night Band can deliver as good a performance as JD and the Bad Boys did. The weather was perfect for sitting out, having a drink with your friends, making new friends and listening to one great rock band.

A bunch of cool motorcycles occupied the parkin...

Bishop’s Westside Pub & Grill


Bishop’s is located at 12110 County Line Road in Madison, conveniently in front of the Publix. It is a cozy pub, with pool tables, darts and video games.

The food is standard pub fare, with a good selection of appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, wings, and the added bonus of ribs. Prices are as you would expect,with entrees ranging from $7-10. Ribs start @ $9.

The place was fairly busy, but the atmosphere was light and friendly. We were lucky enough to have Mendy wait on us, and she was quick and friendly, never letting us pour our own beers, and making great recommendations from the menu.

Overall I really like the small pub atmosphere, and can see myself coming back, especially after a Saturday ride. One note, this is a smoking allowed pub, so be warned if smoke bothers you.
