My favorite thing about Doyle’s Pub and Taproom is their service. Sure, they have some pretty mean nachos, drool-worthy burgers and a tempting selection of beers, but cheery conversation and smiles all around are what really impress me. With its chill vibe, this workday escape allows you to relax, spend some quality time with your crew, and leave pleased as punch—or in this case, pleased as a pint. My recent order of the Bacon Blue Cheeseburger came with a succulent patty that was teeming with flavor, melted blue cheese crumbles that gave it a slight kick, crunchiness from tangy pickles and lettuce, and tomatoes that freshened up the flavor profile. My accompanying Drake’s Brewing Co. “Hella Fresh” Pale Ale was caramel in color and flavor, with a fruity, citrusy finish that I thoroughly enjoyed. Doyle’s makes their own ranch dressing, pico de gallo, salsa and chips—and all are ridiculously good. Anyone who puts so much love into the food they serve deserves some love in return, so don’t be surprised if you find me there happily sipping and smiling away.
