Life of Riley

Formerly Everett Street Tavern (and the Blah Blah Cafe), then a stint as Jimmy Mac's, and now Life of Riley. Hamburgler and RarePattie get some:

Eh. The half-pounder is big, and it's filling, but is oddly dense. It's $9.00, not bad, but nothing really special.

RarePattie had the veggie burger of beans and rice and liked the "masculine" decor. Nicely done and huge as well.

Their veggie burger is better than their burger, oddly enough, but the food is at the high-end of bar food.

Italian cold-cut sandwich, pizzas, tomato soup, fish and chips, pigs in a blanket - all really good.

Pork Chop John, too.

Fries are awesome, and a great beer selection - several Belgians, lots of micros.

Super jock-y a lot of the time - don't even bother during the month of March. Or if you're (like me) a Yankees fan. :)

Looks nasty and dry to me.

I had a bacon cheeseburger here last week and it was very good. The bun was standard issue but the meat was cooked medium rare to perfection and the toppings were top notch. Thick crispy bacon and real cheddar. A good deal for $9 and the servers here are especially friendly for a bar that seems to fill with Pearl district 20 something wankers on a regular basis.
