If You Want to Trek to an Irish Neighborhood...

An Beal Bocht Café
With newspaper clippings and weathered photographs plastered on the walls, An Beal Bocht has stood as a living testament to Riverdale’s Irish heritage since 1991.
The charbroiled, fried-onion-topped burger flipped at this brogue-luring Roosevelt Avenue mainstay is Cheap Eats–approved, and the fat patty only tastes better when paired with a pint (or three) of Guinness.
