Review: Slainte Irish Pub
Price: Deck Burger – with cheddar and jack cheese, bacon and Portobello mushrooms, $8.95
Location: 30th and Market
If you collect every burger ever made throughout history and arrange them from best to worst, this baby will land exactly in the middle. Not special, not bad. Not memorable. Of course, an average burger is better than most things you can eat.
The upside: good, gooey cheese. Nice charcoal taste. Spongy roll, although it lacked flavor. The downside: Our “medium-rare” burger arrived overdone and dry. I’ll fight to the death anyone’s right to liberty and free expression, but there ought to be a law that requires a lengthy prison term for anyone who murders my burger.
The price is more than fair. In fact, go on a Sunday, and you can get a burger and beer (o r a Bloody Mary) for just ten bucks. Just make sure you stand by the chef’s shoulder before he chars your meal to death.
