More on Lucy's Irish Pub and Restaurant.

By Chris Landers | Posted 2/18/2009

Ordinarily, Lucy's Irish Pub, across the street from the Hippodrome, wouldn't be what we would consider cheap eats. The wood paneled former bank building caters to a more upscale, theater-going crowd. (The sandwich it calls "the Killer" seems worth saving up for, though: American bacon, Irish bacon, bangers, American cheese and jalapenos topped with fried egg on a potato onion roll. Seriously, that's worth 12 bucks and the resultant bypass surgery.) So, how to eat like an aficionado of legitimate thee-ay-ter on a traveling puppet show budget? Happy hour! In particular, Thursday's 3 to 7 p.m. burger special, when $7 gets you a beer and a burger. It has some limitations on the beer part--16-ounce domestics only--but the burger turned out to be a 9-ounce slab of juicy goodness with cheese on a chewy soft roll. It's probably for the best that it doesn't put "the Killer" on special, anyway. If it were any cheaper, we'd be dead by now.
