O'Connell's Pub

O Burger, Where Art Thou? In this city, that's a question that scarcely needs to be asked. But when it is, O'Connell's is the answer that you hear most often. Of course, O'Connell's is famous for a variety of reasons, not least of which are its legacy from the Gaslight Square days, and its status as a favorite meeting spot for folks from all walks of life in the city. But these days it's universally acclaimed for its hamburger -- a generous slab of quality meat on a warm bun with a gigantic onion slice. It's the perfect accompaniment to a cold beer (of which there's also plenty at O'Connell's) and some good conversation.
