    You've got to respect a place that opens at 7a.m. some days just to host a big soccer matchup. They've even got a European draft system so Guinness pours like Guinness should. Authentic enough for ya?

    Fadó is an Irish term meaning 'long ago'. Listen to the tale of Ireland's rich and celebrated Pub culture - a culture of hearty food and drink, good music, warm hospitality and friendly banter.

    Was having a great time till all the bartenders & staff turned into a-holes @ last call. They begin charging astronomic prices & start LITERALLY shoving u to the door! Do NOT end your night here!

    You have to try the pulled lamb it was off the hook. Also try the boxties with the cheese dip. And my server Mandy was a sweet heart. This place was a pleasant surprise.

  • Jennifer H.
    Fado has a delicious and cheap burger that has great flavor. $15 gets you a homemade seasoned beef pat tie with arugula, tomato, rasher, cheddar and grilled onion. Delicious!

  • Anita H.
    Forget the meal (which was outstanding) and go straight to the dessert menu. Our table of five, ordered four desserts and we could not decide which was better. YUM!

    Fado offers a great Major League Soccer experience with a traditional Irish Pub atmosphere. Come on down to see the Union in action. Fado's is an official MLS Pub!

    I love going here. I just wish there would be a parking specifically for fados. Food is great and I've always had an awesome time :)

    It is hard to find a better pub anywhere and I've been in a few. Great beer selection and amazing food . Stephanie is amazing as advertised

  • Eric O.
    If you're here for food, the Shepherd's Pie is great, but it is served at approximately two million degrees Fahrenheit. Let it cool down for a good ten minutes before digging in.

    If you love soccer, Fado is your place. Great staff and great drinks. Shame I missed out on the Harp Lager Cheese sauce.

  • Amanda M.
    Fish & Chips is delish and free wifi is awesome. Avoid sitting near the guy who wants to argue that soccer and hockey are the same sport. >.<

    Takes for ever to get any food or service on a Monday night! Do not go on a Monday ever or you will regret your decision. Took 2 hours to get food.

    Mark is the man! Tip him well. Tell him "BJ the Redhead sent me." You won't get anything but I will probably get a phone call.

  • Hockey on Campus
    We know many college hockey fans are also soccer fans. Before Saturday's Frozen Four championship, stop by Fado to watch 4 EPL matches.

    6 Nations Rugby Championship will be shown here. Fadó, pronounced f'doe, is a center for both rugby and soccer fans including Union supporters.
