I had written previously about D’Arcy’s Pint based on past experiences because I sincerely think that this blog was incomplete without mentioning D’Arcy’s.  D’Arcy’s is so successful that eating there over a lunch hour can be very challenging.  I was able to make the trip this past Friday however and have some pictures and a review.

D’Arcy’s is so busy on a typical day that they regularly issue pagers to waiting patrons at lunch

Fortunately for us, a friend got there ahead of us.

Here is the horseshoe section of their menu

Here is their specialty, a buffalo chicken ponyshoe.  Notice that it comes with a cup of buffalo sauce and a cup of bleu cheese dressing.
