I walked out of the office during lunch with one of my co-workers. I think we were talking about my shoes. Then I said, “Excuse me, I’m going in here.” He eyes got big. Yeah, I was going into the Irish pub downstairs, The Limerick House. They’ve been advertising a $10 lunch special that includes a beer and also a $12 Guinness Burger.
I was really tempted to get the $10 lunch special, which I could also get a burger with. But this Guinness Burger (Guinness infused cheddar, Irish Bacon, Stout Onions and Fries) $12 sounded temping too. I got that.
It was a decent burger. However I don’t know if I could really taste the beer. Maybe because I was also drinking a Guinness. Maybe that fucked it up. The toppings were dripping in dirty brown sauce, probably the Guinness infused-ness. Pretty good tasty greasy mess. However, I think I wouldn’t have done much worse with a regular burger. So the $10 lunch special with a beer is the way to go. You get a cheap beer with that, FYI.
Looking at that lunch menu again, maybe I’ll try the Traditional Irish Breakfast or the Smoked Irish BLT deal next time.
