Best Pattie Melt

This place is just like the pubs that I visited in England. Great staff and atmosphere. I had the O'Paddie Melt and it was to die for.

Having spent many years in Ireland, I was excited to try Two Fools. I was the one fooled. Though they have Irish Beer on tap, the food was lacking. The "chips" are made from frozen potatoes. They were tasteless. The fish also tasted frozen. The beef boxy lacked any real Guinness flavor. Disappointed. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain

We frequent pubs in almost every town we visit. This is by far the best one we've ever been to! Being from California, we are picky about fish and chips. These were hands-down the best fish and chips I've ever had! My husband and I shared our plates, and my salmon plate (appetizer but totally big enough for a meal)... More

It's within walking distance to the University of New Mexico and it's interior & furnishings are reminiscent of a typical Pub...Good liquor & beer selection from the "old sods" and the food selections are very good -- I recommend the fix 'n chips! It's a wonderful place to celebrate Tartan Day and/or St Patrick's Day!! Needless-to-say it's a lovely place...!

We stopped in for lunch on the fifth anniversary of our trip to Ireland to commemorate the trip and had an excellent, authentic Irish lunch. The bangers and mash were very good and the boxty stuffed with Guinness stew was wonderful. Also try the Scotch eggs appetizer.

Awesome place, I had the bangers and mash which was delicious. If your a fan of whisky they have over 200! The place is small and tight but it just ads to the atmosphere. Definitely worth a stop .

This pub in Nob Hill was packed, and for good reasons. The beer list (essential for Irish "pubs") is extensive. The menu issues traditional Irish items like boxty, corned beef and cabbage, and bangers and mash, but also a wide range of more typical USA bar foods, like burgers, ruebens,soups and salads. Despite the crowd at dinner time, the service... More

I must say this place is amazing! The fish and chips are the standard period hands down the best in the world! The service is good but the food is amazing. If your in ABQ the fish and chips here will make your trip.

Visited twice during our stay in ABQ. On the first visit had the Fish & Chips due to the number of recommendations, fish and slaw were excellent but the dish was let down badly by skinny fries (not chips in my book) and given the cost reduces the overall rating by one point. Tried the Salmon Platter on our second... More

This is my daughter and son-in-law's fave place so we often go when we visit. Classic pub atmosphere with great food, nice beer selection, and friendly service. The fish & chips are delicious!
