MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Powercat Sports Bar and Grill offers great food and a gameday atmosphere for everyone.

Many people in Wildcat land love to come to a place where it’s all about K-State.

“I think number one, it’s called Powercat for a reason, and so we love all of our fans. And it’s our 10-year anniversary of serving friends, fans, and family. So we had a celebration last month and gave away some great prizes. This is just where people come after the game. We get hit before the games. During the games, you can watch K-State games here away and on the road,” said April Garetson, district manager of Powercat.

Aside from the games, people love the in-house food.

“We’ve got our famous pizzas. We have a fire brick oven that we make our pizzas in. So they’re awesome. We make our dough in-house, so it’s really good. We also have our legendary Wagyu burgers, and we also have our Wagyu steaks, which are very popular and very very good. And then all of our appetizers — we brought back the fried green beans. So those people who miss it they’re back on our menu now. We have some great food. You need to come out and try it,” said Garetson.

Many people come here for the family atmosphere.

“What I like about Powercat is it’s easily accessible, the food is great, and the service is even greater. Its pretty down-home atmosphere feels like part of a family here,” said Eric Peck, a customer.

“Our entire team is like a family. So there’s tons of support, tons of teamwork. We have tons and tons of regulars that come in, so it is fun seeing them time after time, getting more of their story, making more of a connection with them, making sure that I’m giving the best service ever, and, more importantly not just serving but connecting,” said Caila Cibrian, an employee at Powercat.

Powercat hosts the coach’s shows and many other events for players to have great food and enjoy the people.

“People come in, and they can ask questions of the coach. They can interact with the coach. It’s really that personal time that they get to have. We have a lot of people that show up, and then come December, we also do the Jeff Mittie show for women’s basketball, which is also wonderful. So we just love people to come in and hang out. And again, it’s just a nice, fun K-State atmosphere,” said Garetson.
