    The Egg & Cheese Bagelwich will hit the spot, just make sure to load it up with bacon, avocado, AND pastrami like we did!

    This Irish pub is also a Jewish deli. Yes, really. It's also got three (3!) Wi-Fi networks, all free, and none of them have passwords. Yes, really. Best of all, the wifi is actually fast. Yes, really.

    The Concord (fried baloney) will blow your mind! The Clogger and the Reuben are also delicious. Say hi to Jay behind the bar...he's a swell fellow.

    This place is great, but a snakebite is lager & cider, not lager & Guinness. Also, the homemade "matzo"rella sticks are killer.

    The shepherd's pie fries are unreal. No comparison to chili fries; they're just amazing!

    The Latke Madness sandwich is ridiculously good. Latkes replace the rye bread in this riff-on-a-Reuben. YUM is all I gotta say!

    They no longer make the Clogger (RIP), but Bullfrog Bagels are excellent.

    peek the deli! The brine, cure and bake it right there! I do need to go back for the food. Not very vegetarian friendly (even though I'm not a vegetarian).

    Order the Clogger without reservation. It's a "sandwich," like the Grand Canyon is a "hole." Way beyond your expectations.
