Tavern popular for burgers and beer; fireplaces in winter, patio in summer.
A good place to grab a burger and beer for lunch, dinner, or a late-night snack, even on Sundays. The menu is small, its centerpiece a burger thats been called the best in town (it's also been called the most overrated). Also available are fries, steak and chicken breast sandwiches, a dinner salad, and fried cod, shrimp, and chicken. The beer selection is limited, but the margaritas and sangria are outstanding. In summer the large garden is the place to sit; in winter the two fireplaces keep it cozy inside. Good value for hungry (but not too fastidious) people on a budget—plus there's free parking next door.
The interior of Moody's, est. 1959, is in a style I might call German-cavernous, but the patio is really where the action's at: it's an expansive spot that can accommodate crowds of neighborhood patrons stopping by for good burgers and cheap beer. The bar also offers some drink specialties, all on the sweet side—creations with schnapps and Kahlúa when it's cold and, in the summer, sangria—as well as heavy-duty supper-club-type food like pork chops and sirloin steak. —Sam Worley
