Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of pub and grill fare and drinks at Fibber McGee's.
The most beloved entree on Fibber McGee's dinner menu is its black and bleu filet ($28), 9 ounces of meat rolled in black pepper, topped with melted bleu cheese, and served with soup or salad, fresh vegetables, choice of potato or rice pilaf, and ciabatta bread. Fresno foodies, though, can work their way up to it by sinking teeth-tritons into the sweet-potato fries appetizer ($4.75) or the grilled artichoke starter ($6.95) served with spicy mayo. Carnivoyagers may wish to chart a course for the rib-eye steak sandwich ($13.75) or the corned beef and cabbage ($11.95). A selection of pasta dishes and salads are also available, as well as a lunch menu with sandwiches and burgers, including the 1/3-pound Fibber McGee burger ($7.95), topped with swiss cheese, avocado, and bacon—the holy trinity of hamburger heap-ons.
Everything on the menu fits easily between sips and swigs from Fibber McGee's roster of specialty drinks. The Popsicle's ($6.25) blend of Southern Comfort, amaretto, orange juice, cranberry, and pineapple will fill you with nostalgic childhood memories of summer evenings spent sitting on the porch sucking on alcohol-drenched frozen treats. And if you need to inject a little helter skelter into a hard day's night of paperback writing with a little help from your friends, the Beatle Mania drop shot ($6.75) floats peach schnapps atop Crown Royal, then drops the whole thing into a half glass of Rockstar.
Named for the classic radio show Fibber McGee and Molly, Fibber McGee's maintains the tradition of people saying things into microphones with live music on the weekends. Open mic night is every Wednesday, giving Fresno a forum to finally share their collection of haikus about the nicknames they've given their various body parts.
