The Dublin Pub, also called the Publin, is a restaurant who stands on the shoulders of a giant.  A few years ago when D’Arcy’s Pint decided to relocate to a bigger location to accomodate their success they left a storefront location dressed up like an Irish pub.  The owner’s of the Dublin Pub capitalized on the D’Arcy’s move and opened a new Irish Pub/horseshewery in the same location.  To be honest, the interior looks almost exactly the same and so do the horseshoes. 

The Dublin Pub has a large horseshoe menu and offers the choice of a white cheese sauce similar to D’Arcy’s or a yellow cheese sauce.

 Their shoes come on Texas toast and feature crinkle fries.  Their two-cheese approach can lead to some interesting shoes.  I dined here recently and had a hamburger horseshoe with half-white cheese and half-yellow cheese.  You can see the yellow cheese on the right side of the picture and the white on the left.
