I had a double take at the title. Thought it was about Poncho's! Shouldn't it be Pintxos?

I got my sister in laws translation a bit wrong, it was in Basque after all.

Best streets near stadium for Pintxos

Calle Licenciado Pozas / Calle Garcia Ribero and her favorites in the area are

Mugi Taberna..........Calle Licenciado Pozas
Goizeko Argia..........Gregorio de la Revilla
Acomerypunto...........Alameda Urquito

It would be a shame not to try them all

Would say like most places depends if the place has a dress code or nor ?. Pintxos bars are like street restaurants, posh ones are more sniffy than more basic ones !.

Can live with that, have seats in row three of the ground if it lashes should be plenty of spare seats further back to settle into !.

in licenciado pozas is the "huevo berria" and next to the stadium the "antxi" and "la catedral" in alameda urquijo for pintxos and in "la bodega" they have beer bottles "mahou " at 1'5 euros (I hope they do not raise the price), It is also good "las cañitas de briñas".

You will not have any problem in any place, here it is customary to go with the clothes of your team.
