Cheers erupt beneath Kirby's Grill and Bar's flat-screen TVs after heroic sports plays, prompting patrons to toast teams over beer and hearty pub fare. Still-sizzling half-pound certified-Angus-beef burgers pile onto sweet brioche rolls under toppings of apple-wood bacon or gruyere cheese, and patrons may break between bites of signature baby-back ribs, chicken, and fried shrimp for sides of fries, coleslaw, and homemade cornbread. A kids' menu follows grilled-cheese or chicken-fingers meals with a choice of cookie, ice cream, or life-size jello sculpture of a favorite Archie character. Tabletops checker the hardwood floors of the dining room as sunlight steams down onto rows of casual vinyl booths, illuminating patrons as they prep for special events scheduled throughout the week, including trivia nights and poker games.
