I had a hamburger ponyshoe today at the Barrel Head Pub so thought I would do a review for you.  First off, you know from the basics that a ponyshoe is a smaller horseshoe.  I have already planned to visit the Dublin Pub Friday so I didn’t want to get stuffed.  My ponyshoe consisted of one piece of texas toast, one hamburger, a stack of fries and a yellow cheese sauce.  

The cheese sauce was mild with little extra spice.  I would say it was had a creamy american flavor, maybe with a velveeta.   The hamburger was medium as I had ordered and very tasty.  The Barrel Head uses really wide steak fries on their shoes which are not messy to eat and work well with hamburger shoes especially if you add ketchup and mustard.  All in all, Barrel Head shoes are a tasty and well executed version of a standard shoe.

Some people eat their horseshoes plain and some use condiments.  I almost always use ketchup and mustard on hamburger shoes:
