Neighborhood pubs are often crucial stops on political campaigns, allowing senatorial hopefuls to hobnob with hamburgers, kiss newborn tater tots, and secure the all-important ketchup-bottle vote. Tap into a culinary constituency with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American pub grub and drinks at Beef ‘O'Brady's in Beavercreek and Centerville.
Beef ‘O’Brady’s grill masters load their menu up with hearty American fare, serving appetite-quelling dishes within a family-friendly Irish sports pub. A basket of traditional or boneless wings ($7.49 for 10) leads off the appetizer menu, digging its fried, crispy cleats into one of 11 sauces, from hot to teriyaki to a stew of pixie tears. The half-pound ‘O’Brady Burger emerges from a long hibernation in a cave of herbs and spices, carrying its blanket of melted provolone cheese ($7.99), and Beef ‘O’Brady’s signature sandwich, the Watterson ($8.99), commemorates one of its first customers with a roast-beef-and-rye portrait smiling from behind a swiss-cheese frame. The lunch menu items sate noontime cravings with soft tacos stuffed with fish ($5.99) and turkey and smoked bacon bench-pressing a soft brioche bun ($7.79).
Beef ‘O’Brady’s bar stocks a refreshing array of soft drinks, wine, and beer. Sit back and sip a glass of Barefoot chardonnay, or watch sports while hoisting a pint of Bud Light in a toast to the miniature people playing inside the bar's flat-screen TVs.
