Strip, you know, next to the Pilot Station has uprooted and headed to the heart of the strip in the building formerly occupied by Chili’s.  Owners thought it would be better to be in the heart of the strip, where everything is happening.  The move makes it more convenient for student customers, but long die-hard fans prefer the intimacy of the old location.  Investors didn’t care for the move and that in itself called for a change from Old College Inn to the Goal Post Tavern.  Yes, to the long die hard fans, that tacky name will never live up to the original traditions.  All good things must come to an end and something will come along to take it’s place.  Goal Post Tavern is set to be the new local “thing”.  Most of the old recipes and traditions of OCI are at the new place, the atmosphere has evolved and the crowds are still coming in.  Lets face it, everything changes at some point or it disappears altogether.       Goal Post Tavern is now the premiere gathering place on the strip.  Offering traditional burgers, chicken, salads, and all of the Campus Traditions that OCI offered through the past years.  Its up to todays students at U.T. to support the new tradition or let it die.  There are a lot of negative feelings on the web about relocating and renaming a U.T. Tradition and messing with tradition in a Volunteer territory is a nasty job.  Soups & Salads Homemade Salad Dressings:  Prepared Fresh Daily:  Goal Post House (Cheddar Cheese), Dijon Honey Mustard, Bleu Cheese, Italian, Thousand Island, French, Ranch, (Fat Free Ranch also available) Our Homemade Soups Available by the bowl or cup. 4.95 / 2.95 Cup of Soup & Salad Choice of soup and regular tossed salad with choice of dressing. 8.45 Goal Post Tossed Salad Lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, red cabbage, cucumbers, shredded cheese, home baked croutons, with choice of dressing.  Add chicken breast or fried tenders 3.00. 5.95 Chicken Southern Salad Charbroiled breast of chicken served on a generous bed of fresh lettuce and mixed greens with green pepper, red onion, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, pepperoncini, olives, Mandarin orange slices and almonds topped with dijon honey mustard dressing.  Large or half size available. 9.95 / 7.95 The Chef’s Salad A large bowl of crisp lettuce, cherry tomatoes, pickles, red onion, green peppers, ham, turkey breast, shredded cheese, green and black olives, egg, pepperoncini with choice of dressing.  Large or half size available. 9.95 / 7.95 Caesar Salad Crisp romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese and croutons tossed with classic Caesar dressing.  Add chicken breast 3.00 5.95 Greek Salad Crisp lettuce, tomatoes, ham, salami, pepperoncini, green and black olives, egg, Swiss and feta cheeses, anchovies (upon request), pickles & onions with oil & vinegar dressing.  Large or half size available. 9.95 / 7.95 Open Faced Burgers 8oz charbroiled USDA certified Angus ground beef on English muffins served with lettuce, tomato, onions & pickle chips and a side of fries.  Substitute onion rings add 75¢ Goal Post Burger Grilled to order.  Add cheese 50¢ 8.45 Cordon Bleu Burger Ham, country bacon and melted Swiss cheese. 8.95 English Burger Melted cheddar cheese topped with country bacon. 8.95 Famous Pepper Burger Beef gravy seasoned with cracked peppercorns. 8.95 French Burger Burgundy wine sauce with mushrooms. 8.95 Mexican Burger Chili, pico, jalapenos and hot pepper cheese. 8.95 Italian Burger Provolone and parmesan cheese, pepperoni and marinara sauce. 8.95 Swiss Burger Swiss cheese and country bacon. 8.95 Steak Burger Served on a bun 5 oz of USDA Certified Angus ground beef.  Add cheese 50¢ 7.95 Veggie Burger Served on an English muffin with lettuce, tomato, any cheese and a side of fries. 7.95 Chicken Sandwiches Boneless chicken breast on an English muffin served with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and a side of fries.  Substitute onion rings add 75¢  Mesquite Grilled - Charbroiled Mesquite  8.95 Louisiana Blackened Topped with melted provolone cheese. 8.95 South-of-the-Border - covered with chili, pico, hot pepper cheese, and Jalapenos. 8.95 Goal Post Chicken Sandwich Burgundy wine sauce with mushrooms. 8.95 Country Plantation Battered, deep fried tenders, melted American cheese and bacon, Served on a bun. 8.95 Chicken Parmesan Breaded chicken tenders topped with our homemade marinara and melted provolone cheese, served on a white hoagie. 8.95 Chicken Philly Grilled chicken on a white hoagie with sautéed onions, green pepper & mushroom, Topped with melted provolone cheese. 8.95 Hall of Fame Our Homemade Mashed Potatoes may not be available after 9:00 p.m., a substitution will be offered.
