So hit up McDonaghs Pub in Keyport for lunch today:
Again I went for the burger, ordering the classic:
It arrived reasonably promptly, fully dressed and cooked a perfect RARE !
Wow. Gotta say one of, if not the, best burgers in Monmouth. Juicy, juicy, juicy. My friend who went to Frankie’s last week was with me again, and he may have liked the McD burger better. To me it’s like the red head vs the blond. Both are very delicious and properly prepared. So you can’t go wrong going home with either. If anything Frankie’s might have had a little beefier flavor. But it was not as juicy as McD’s by a mile.
Toppings all fresh and delicious the burger also came at $11.95 with a small portion of perfect fries. And the cook threw on free BACON, even though we didn’t order it.
Nights and weekends at McDonaghs can be a bit of a nightmare, especially if there is a band. But today we were the only people in there. Even at lunch they do play the rock and Irish so it can be a little noisy but it was tolerable.
The are also running $5 lunch specials all this month, including an awesome looking bar pie and a stacked BLT on rye. So I will be heading back soon to give these a shot.
Again, simply one of the best burgers in Monmouth.
