What You'll Get

Comfort food garbs your tongue in luxurious velveteen knickerbockers of flavor, as opposed to discomfort food, which clings to the face like an overtight ascot. Avoid the embarrassment of culinary crampers with today's Groupon to Donovan's Irish Cobbler. Choose between the following options:

  • For $10, you get $20 worth of comforting Irish dinner fare and drinks.
  • For $6, you get $12 worth of lunch or breakfast fare and drinks.

Cobbling together Irish and American cuisine, Donovan's Irish Cobbler generates rich, homestyle pub grub in a family-owned and family-friendly environment. Forge new groundwork for multicultural culinary relations with the Irish nachos—crispy, fried potatoes smothered in savory corned beef, the pub's signature cheese sauce, sour cream, and jalapenos ($8). The "shoe" sandwich plays like a riff on the classic French dish ratatouille, but instead of being constructed of slivered vegetables, it's made of texas toast piled high with fries, cheese sauce, and a choice of meats, including pulled pork, fried chicken, turkey, or hamburger ($8). Vegetarian substitutions are available on a variety of entrees, such as the boxty, an Irish potato pancake dish ($8.50). Lunch options include wraps and sandwiches from $4.95, with a host of hearty breakfast fare available on weekends, including eggy takes on dinner entrees such as the horseshoe sandwich ($5.50) and boxty ($6). Finish off any meal with some of the restaurant's eponymous cobbler ($4), or take up more permanent residence and enjoy draft choices, such as Killian's ($2), until 2 a.m. Peruse the menus for further edification.

About Donovan's Irish Cobbler

Growing up in Illinois, the Donovan family fell in love with the horseshoe, an open-faced sandwich piled high with ham and covered in cheese sauce and French fries. When they opened Donovan's Irish Cobbler, the clan brought their own version of the Illinois tradition with them. In this version, fries and homemade cheese sauce join your choice of meat, including smoked ham, hamburger, and fried chicken. The dish became a hit, but it isn't the only one that caught on when Donovan's introduced it to the region. Boxty—stacked potato pancakes topped with shredded beef and, again, the house's signature cheese sauce—has also taken off like an alien spaceship that just stopped in to use Earth's Wi-Fi. The two popular dishes head a menu heavy on Irish classics such as bangers and mash, but also featuring paninis, salads, and wraps.

Open until 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday, the pub is a lively night time spot. Each week it hosts events such as team trivia and four-hour sets of live music on Friday and Saturday.
