My Birthday Dinner

We were visiting Tempe and we chose Rula Bula to have my birthday dinner. We were 5 adults and 3 kids ages 7 to 3 years old, I made reservations just because there were 8 of us. One of my grandsons has severe food allergies and they bent over backwards to accommodate him. He had a hamburger patty... read more

All around a good place to eat and have a drink. Went with a group of about ten co workers to start out a night of bar hopping on the strip. Had the bangers and mash. it was good. Lots of big portions and reasonable pricing. Would recommend for sure.

I've been coming here for years and I always get the Braised Beef and Guinness Boxty. It's basically a potato pancake type crepe wrapped around tender roast beef in a rich Guinness gravy. It's so incredibly delicious -100% comfort food! The fish and chips are awesome too. It's in downtown Tempe with parking on the north side of the building.... More

Try the outside bar or hightop between 3:00 and 6:00, and watch for a band on some weekends. The bands can be hit or miss so get a good listen before you pay cover.

It had a very nice patio with lots of greenery and birds. Bloody Mary for brunch was good, as was the traditional lamb stew.

If you want amazing authentic Irish food and drink, then this is the place for you! Welcoming staff, incredible atmosphere, attentive wait staff all combine for an exceptional experience. I highly recommend the appetizers, the world famous fish and chips and an irish car bomb to enjoy with your selection,

This was my 2nd time visiting and it was as good as the 1st time! This is just a really fun pub with a great drink selection and good food. Both times, I have opted to chose from their small plate menu, rather than have a full meal. I tell ya.... sitting out on their great patio, drinking beer and... More
