Beef ‘O' Brady’s menu boasts a protein parade of classic American fare prepared hot, steaming, and packed with enough beefy flavor to stampede even the most ravenous appetite. Start the meal with a hearty order of potato skins ($6.49) or hand-tossed wings in one of 11 piquant sauces ($8.99 for a basket). The build-your-own burger is founded on a quarter pound of seasoned steak, forming a cozy starter home for toppings including hearty chili, deliquescent cheeses, and snappy smoked bacon ($5.99; add-ons $0.50 each). Dabble in America's meat subculture without organizing a cross-country road trip on cowback by enlisting platters such as barbecue-slathered St. Louis–style ribs ($17.99 for a full rack) or the Dubliner, which pours Guinness gravy all over thinly-sliced roast beef, swiss cheese, mashed potatoes, and sourdough bread ($8.99). While they dine, customers can absorb sports action on one of the many TVs adorning the family-friendly space, waving their favorite team on to victory with a choice of either straight or curly fries.
