Editorial Review of Fado Irish Pub

A row of taps at Fado
This downtown Irish pub is the closest thing to home for plenty of local sports lovers. That probably has something to do with the fact Fado hosts regular athletic-themed events like the Celtic Golf Outing and the Runners Club 5k walk. Every Wednesday from August through October, the bar kicks off a 5k walk and rewards its participants with a complimentary pasta buffet at the finish.

Unlike many bars, you won't be limited to greasy appetizers at Fado. The restaurant offers a full menu of salads, sandwiches and hearty Irish-inspired entrees like homemade shepherd's pie, corned beef and cabbage and chicken pot pie. Fado even has a constant hangover cure with its all-day Irish breakfast of two eggs, sausage, bacon, black and white pudding, baked beans, tomatoes and brown bread.

If you are just looking for something to share, try the restaurant's famous pint-size sandwiches. Choose from three cheese-fueled fillings including ham and cheese, cheddar and American cheese or bacon, turkey and cheese. Large groups should go for Dublin's sampler platter, which comes with a handful of Fado's signature appetizers like cheese dip and wedges, chicken tenders and quesadillas.
