Restaurant Review: Maribelle's Tavern

2062 Riverside Drive

As I have mentioned on occassion, I have a group of friends that meet every Tuesday for happy hour. We call it DAFT - Downtown After Five on Tuesdays. Well, it has grown from like four of us just a few years ago to about thirteen people on a good week. A few weeks ago a number of us ventured out to Maribelle's Tavern in the East End after drinks and after a couple of people had been there the week before and raved. We've now been back a few times and this last time was to enjoy the patio and Burger Jackpot!

Overall, our experience has always been great. I always expect some craziness with the 10 to 13 people we have, especially when we just show up without reservations. Sometimes we wait briefly to get tables ready and someone may have had an issue getting their meal served with the others. But all-in-all, service and food was reasonable and excellent. Burger Jackpot is their special on Sundays and Tuesdays where you get any kind of burger (Beef, Turkey, or Veggie) with three sides for $6.00. You can't beat that. I too was impressed by the d├ęcor of the place.

Our rather loud group has decided that a slot machine-like pull is required when ordering the Burger Jackpot! And yeah, that's me doing the required motion.
