Arooga's Grille House & Sports Bar Wins "Simply The Best" Awards for Best Sports Bar and Best WingsHarrisburg, PA  (  Harrisburg’s longest and most impressive winning streak is alive and well, thanks to the readers of Harrisburg Magazine.

Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar, the Harrisburg-born and Harrisburg-based award-winning full-service casual dining restaurant and bar, recently topped the readers’ favorite poll for Simply the Best Sports Bar and Wings in the publication’s highly coveted “Simply the Best” awards. Arooga’s has won both categories for past six years, in as many years of eligibility.

“Everyone at Arooga’s is extremely grateful yet thrilled by this award again. It never gets old,” said Gary Huether, Jr., president and co-founder of Arooga’s. “Every year, we try to be the best in the eyes of our guests and it is with great appreciation that we thank the readers of Harrisburg Magazine for recognizing Arooga’s as ‘Simply the Best.’ We celebrate every honor as if it’s our first and will keep working hard to endear our brand to our hometown fans.”

Arooga’s recently celebrated its sixth anniversary and is scheduled to open another Central Pennsylvania location in September. In addition, Arooga’s broke ground in July on the first of 15 planned restaurants over the next five years in New England, as a result of a franchise agreement with The Mohegan Tribe.

Arooga’s is perhaps best know for its selection as America’s Next Top Restaurant Franchise, beating more than 250 entrants from 36 states last year in a program co-sponsored by Sysco Foods and The Franchise Edge in a nationwide search to find an independent restaurant to become the next great franchise.
