I think the clue is the sign reflected in the neon VFW sign.  Can't make it out.
 
But, from the color of the balloons I'm going to guess you're very near Wrigley Field.

Sault Ste Marie, Michigan ,,,,yes that's it, and what a great town/city it is , Linda and I actually ate at the VFW fish fry, it was fun and the fish was good.  I grew-up on the Great Lakes but when I was a kid the predominant fish on  Friday Fish Fry was pike...yellow or blue pike but that was over fifty years ago. I never even heard of whitefish till we drove into Sault Ste Marie and took a walk down Portage Ave to see the lakers pass through the locks. I saw this sign and had to try the fish.... I'll try to find the pic of inside the VFW, such a great piece of Americana. You have to love getting on the road and visiting places like this.

 
 
 
I have another pic I want to test you Roadfooders with......   I know for sure some of you folks have been there. we'll see ..... Frank

WHITEFISH was the "clue"!  C'mon.
 
"Sportsfans" evidently was a diversion.
 
Maybe A.Y.C.E. for $8.00 gave away the fact that it wasn't a major urban area.
 
Anyways, it was fun.
 
I don't have a clue where that bar is, but I'd sure like to be there.  Bet the bar-food is tasty, too!

Well, it's not the Oak Bar at the Plaza.  Been there.  Besides, that is smoke stained knotty pine, not oak.
 
Anchor Bar, Buffafo?
The bar that invented the "Juicy Lucy" in Minneapolis?

I thought The Mint or M&M, but the bar in your picture is much finer that I recall either of those.
 
Someplace in Milwaukeee ???

Sizz, the yellow pike is just a plain old walleye, Sander vitreus. The now extinct blue pike was Sander vitreus glaucus, also a walleye.

All I can see is that from the knotty pine it must have been built in the 1950's.  That eliminates the original AFL and the later Sun Belt & West Coast "expansion" cities.

It is not Matt's Bar where the Jucy Lucy was created. Knotty pine and and they play football down the street? With all the blonds I would have to guess Green Bay but I don't know the place.

I was wondering if it could possibly be Kroll's West in Green Bay, but I have only ever eaten in the dining room there.  I think there is a seperate bar area.

nope, non of the above ...I cant believe it, hundreds of you folks have been there, this joint has been featured on every food TV show, food blogs, these pages, and even 86 different threads here on Roadfood.com that talk about this famous joint... I think the main reason you foodies don't recognize this place is that you never entered it through the front door, or sat at a table and had a waitress serve you the food that their famous for. I just bet quarterback Tebow is going to love this place........

Does not one expect a certain amount of rutting to occur at a place called "Rutt's Hut"?

I think saying "right down the road from where they play football" is deceiving considering that there is NOTHING around the meadowlands. I was thinking it was a place that was a block away from a football stadium.

It's hard to believe it took you folks took so lone to recognize one of the most popular hot-dog joints in the world...  I'm sure a lot of you never knew that Rutt's even had a bar .. Sitting at a table inside the bar ordering our rippers / creamators  watching and listing to the locals was like living in a episode of the Sapranos or Jersey Shore 
There is a picture of this bar here on Roadfood's very own review (bottom pic)

Too far North.
(Are you people trying to trick me into giving you information on this old RF gem?)
 
When I first came upon this place ... before I had a digital camera, there was more on the roof ... roughly "EAT" ... "Bacon, Eggs, Toast ... $17.99" ... (I forget the exact price, but it wasn't a price that would have ever compelled me to stop.)

I'm saying This old building had/has a sign on its tin roof that reads "EAT" (that you can still see) and before it faded, it said "Bacon, Eggs, Toast ... $17.99" ... and was/is the the front of the building ... and you can see it from the road.

Post #9,
The Clue is "Outer' which could mean the outer boroughs of NYC.
Even got the magnifying glass out to try to read the menu above the bar! All I could make out was Chicken, Hot Dogs & Ham Salad & Tuna. Glass mustard & horseradish jars on the table with lids & plastic spoons in them. Definitely a sandwich joint.
The menu on the table has a red cover!

Looking at the vegetation, I'd say it's in the high desert. Maybe around Reno, NV. Definitely in the West judging by the big sky.

Maybe the $17.99 referred to how much it would take to purchase the business.
 
Or, maybe it's in the High Sierra's of Northern California where outlandish prices were charged to the "captive market" of gold and silver miners.

I can't help wondering if it might be Pancho Barnes' restaurant, once known as the Happy Bottom Riding Club near what is now Edwards AFB

Post #9...?  your late to the party Jimmy,  that was already correctly guesses by MetroplexJim as Rutt's in NJ
We are now on Post #35 where no one other then Michael Hoffman is old enough to recognize this 200 year old building as a restaurant .
