The lettuce-, tomato-, and onion-topped Angus patty joins philly steak sandwiches, six styles of wings, and barbecue ribs to lend a taste of home as the neighborhood haven's big-screen TVs and video games forge a bustling atmosphere for drinking and dining. Both draft and bottled beer of the domestic and imported variety—including the essential Guinness stout—balance the hearty flavors, and special events and weekends usher in live bands that croon love songs to reticent bacon cheeseburgers.
