Ireland’s famous accent makes everything sound appetizing, explaining the broad American appeal of potato skins, battered and fried fish, and wines made from grapes crushed by step-dancers. Dig into Irish eats with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Irish pub fare at TomKelly’s Chophouse and Pub in New Lenox.
TomKelly’s Chophouse and Pub's team serves cuisine from a sizable menu of homey, brewpub-style Irish fare. Whet whistles with a Pots of Gold appetizer ($7.89), a plate of crispy potato skins bedecked with cheese, green onions, and bacon that illustrates how pots were used before they became coin depositories for avaricious rainbows. The deep-fried, breaded tilapia ($9.99) and bacon-cheddar burger ($9.99) meet daily requirements for carbs, protein, and chewiness. Dairy-enamored diners can get cheesy by opting for the margherita pizza ($10.99+), which intermixes mozzarella, olive oil, and fresh basil. The roster of house specialties includes seafood, chicken, and noodle dishes such as pasta primavera olio ($13.99)—an amalgam of rainbow rotini mixed with peppers and tomatoes splashed in a light white-wine-and-garlic sauce. While devouring Irish eats, guests can take in sporting events from 14 plasma TVs or tap their forks to the rhythms of live DJs, who tend to put on better parties than dead DJs.
