Is it Tuesday yet? It was when LC, little T, and I happened to stop by this neighborhood Irish pub for lunch recently. Unaware of the Tuesday special, we were reviewing Hand in Hand’s menu of classic pub fare before our server told us about the $2 pub burger. Sold! But just to me and LC; his daughter chose a grilled chicken sandwich with an arugula salad instead.
The pub burger is a six ounce beef pattie on a Holeman and Finch bun, topped with lettuce, tomato, and crispy onions. That’s it. Sides are extra. We got one order of fries to share. Refreshment was in order in the Summer heat, so LC and I ordered Moscow mules made with ginger infused vodka.
Little T enjoyed her chicken sandwich but there was an issue with the arugula salad. Only greens, it was dressed with a sharply citrus vinaigrette. An unorthodox sprinkle of Splenda made it more palatable.
Our pub burgers were the perfect size, thick patties cooked medium by request. We both added cheese (extra charge), and considered bacon but decided to keep it simple. Crunchy fried onions added texture and flavor. Mayo on the side worked for the burgers and the fries.
Served on Hand in Hand’s charming patio, the Tuesday $2 pub burger is perfect for a mid-week burger fix…or a cheap date.
