A few years ago I used to work across the street from John Martin’s Irish Pub and I made this place my home away from my home by eating here 3 to 5 times a week for lunch. The menu has expanded over the course of the years to not only continue offering Irish specialties but lots of pub grub.
I always like to start my meal here with either the Wings or Chicken Tenders which are hand breaded. The almost neon colored Hot Sauce served with the Wings is also a great idea to try on your Tenders. The Wings are crispy and the Tenders are about as perfect as a Chicken Strip/Tender can be.
On the sandwich front the Burgers are at the forefront. I’ve had all of them multiple time but if you were twisting my arm I’d say the Pub Burger is the best one. The Pub Burger is blackened and if I were you I’d ask for Blue Cheese instead of the Irish Cheddar it comes with, it’s just so perfect.
The Buffalo Chicken is probably one of the Top 3 I’ve ever had. Most folks swear by these chain Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches but this is the real deal with a juicy breaded Chicken breast covered in their neon Hot Sauce and melted Blue Cheese (none of that Blue Cheese dressing nonsense).
And if you feel like going over the edge they’ve got a Monte Cristo Sandwich. Yes, it’s like the one you remember from Bennigan’s but this one is good. It’s all here: Turkey, Ham, Swiss & American Cheeses on White Bread then battered and fried. It’s served with Berry jam for dipping too. Do not eat this entire sandwich for lunch and plan on going back to work at full capacity because this Sandwich will do a number on you.
John Martin’s Irish Pub and Restaurant is more than just Wings and Sandwiches though. I just scratched the surface of what available to eat here and that’s not counting the daily lunch specials. There’s Meatloaf, Shepherd’s Pie, Bangers & Mash…the list goes on and on. The best part? It’s all great.
