Patrick’s

I’m not sure how it has taken us this long to get to Patrick’s. We pass by it all the time on Park Ave and I always wonder how the food is. Well, my friends, now I know. And it’s a win!

I will say, we had a rough start to the evening. The server we had when we first arrived was very rude to us. We try to be pretty understanding with things like that because no one has good days all the time and who knows what she might be dealing with at home. However, it still isn’t great fun to have a server in such a bad mood. Thankfully her shift ended just after we arrived and we got a new server named who was absolutely wonderful! Aaand now on to the food!

the mempho - patricksChristopher got the Mempho which is described by the menu as:  “A slab of our rich, creamy mac’n’cheese grilled on white pullman bread with Swiss cheese, caramelized onions and pulled pork with our house BBQ sauce on the side.” I can’t even begin to tell you how good it was. Rich and creamy and tangy and sweet and absolutely wonderful. When we go back, this is absolutely what I will order!

meatloaf sandwichI got the meatloaf sandwich. I can’t find it on their online menu so I’m not positive exactly what the menu said about this one, BUT! It was also delicious. Toasted bread topped with homestyle meatloaf which was then topped with homestyle mashed potatoes which was then topped with crispy onion tanglers. Oh. My. Yum!

We ended up splitting each of our meals in half and sharing because we both liked BOTH meals so much! I got the onion rings which were enormous and Christopher got the curly fries which were well seasoned. All in all, an absolutely wonderful meal! At about $10/plate – this place is amazing!

One of the coolest things was that as we were sitting there eating our dinner we heard a couple of staff members (possibly managers or owners – we weren’t sure who they were actually, but they obviously worked there) chatting and wouldn’t you know… one of the ladies had a thick Irish brogue. Now that, my friends, makes it feel like a real Irish pub. ;)
