Great for quick lunch

There are many Irish places along this strip and with the open air but covered tables by the sidewalk Hennessey's seemed like a good choice for a quick lunch. Service was fast and friendly refilling the ice tea before being asked. It was a Tuesday so yes we had the 2-for-1 burgers. My Dublin... read more

My hubby and I stopped by Hennessey's last night for their Tuesday 2 for 1 burger night. We had been out of the country for a while, came home craving a good burger and we have not been here in a really long time. He had had a burger overseas that was equivalent to $22 US and albeit it was... More

Sunday Morning Breakfast is great here especially if you want to have Champagne. They have a nice Sparkling by the glass for $6.25. I brought my company here because we are all potato heads and ordered the Irish Nachos...OMG good. I like how they use large russets and plank them smothered in Cheese, bacon bits, sour cream and green onions.... More

We stopped in to grab a beer and watch some of the playoff football games. The place had many locals or regulars in their favorite teams gear but the crowd was well behaved, loud, but with good nature. We had their house made 'Kettle Chips', supposedly salt and vinegar, I searched for the vinegar, nope, not there! This was fine... More

Their "Specialty" bergers are worth the extra cost. Our favorite so far is the "San Franciscan." Also, Tuesday's is BOGO for their bergers!

You can't beat their hamburgers, in several flavors! Fish & chips is equally good. Generally good service but gets crowded on weekends.
