Good food but not a lot of atmosphere

Great burgers and food, with burger specials on Tuesdays that can't be beat. Maybe one of the best burgers in town. It's definitely a bar, and nothing more with uncomfortable seating, a few big screens for sports and that's about it. Nothing fancy at all and you won't want to sit there long... read more

We can't tell which is better because we love them both, so whichever you choose, the shepards pie or beef tips, you're in for a great meal! We tried the pretzel sticks and they were good. Another member of our party enjoyed their burger as well.

Have tried McBride's a few times with my wife and we have not been disappointed. Initially found the place with a Groupon and decided to try their Friday fish. They have an excellent Friday fish fry with generous portion and the atmosphere is nice. The joint is packed every time we have been there so that tells you something about... More

Food was just barely above terrible. Dry chicken breast, poor service. So much potential but it will not happen.

Hello, I first want to apologize for your experience at McBride's Pub! We are known for our friendly service and great burgers so to hear that our staff was not in a good mood and our burgers were not good is very upsetting to me. I would love more information as to what day and time you visited us? Who... More

While I review places when I travel I need to pay attention to those I frequent at home. I have been a regular patron at McBrides for years now and have to say they are consistent and the service is always friendly and fast. The Ruben is great and burgers are spot on. The entrees I have tried are very... More

Very good food, good service, polite staff and a nice atmosphere, me and my wife enjoyed a nice dinner out together, we watched the Hawks game and enjoyed the family orientated atmosphere. We will be back here to eat again.

McBride's lunch specials are great! we went today for the $5:00 hamburger &fries. $1:50 domestic beer. my favorite is their club sandwich. My wife and I share one with lattice potatoes. I recommend eating at either location, Plainfield or Joliet.
