    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.

    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?

    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!

    Fad贸 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.

    Fado's menu offers progressive Irish cuisine, importing many of their ingredients directly from Ireland. The decor is also direct from pubs in Ireland. Read more

    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!

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

    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.

    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. >.<

    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!
