Lunch Review: Worst Item to Order at a Pub

Lunch Review: Worst Item to Order at a Pub

worst items to order at a pub

This is completely my fault. First I had never heard anything about JR Bently’s, then I didn’t read the menu first and of course I never order pub food. The only reason I did not get Fish & Chips is because I don’t regularly eat fried food.

So the situation just started off wrong.

I was asked to come have lunch as a portion of the proceeds would go toward Arlington Proud and then for charity I always order higher priced items. We even got an appetizer! Some of this money we’re spending goes for a good cause!

chips & salsa
Hate it when I’m too hungry to wait for food

I really had no business ordering salsa from a pub. This was my fault, I was just hungry. Not terrible, but not great. It was fine. I’m not used to fine salsa. My mom makes one of the most amazing salsas and most of the time I never order chips & salsa out of pure respect.

Fancy salad

Iceberg lettuce. The cheese made up for it? I didn’t order any ranch because I didn’t want empty calories.

Medium Rare Stake, loaded backed potato
Straight up cut from the cow tossed on the grill

I ordered on the side for the bake potato but it was on top. Already disappointed I just asked for the A1, there was no rub or marinate. The baked potato made up for everything. Ordering the toppings on the side was a bad move anyways, I ate all of it.

Burger & fries
Greasy and pub worthy

THIS IS WHAT I SHOULD HAVE ORDERED! Aaron Rockabitch just ordered what you order at a pub and let me have a taste and now I know. I also did not order any alcohol. I should have just went to Sweet Tomato and ordered an Arlington Proud hoodie.


Have you ever tried to avoid a certain food then end up eating a less than appetizing meal?

  1. I usually order chicken tenders. Bars and pubs have the best chicken and French fries. I know I look like a 12 year old ordering it but I don’t care. It’s delicious!

  2. The burger definitely looks a lot better than the steak! I had crab cakes at a pub once and they were just awful. They tasted super fishy and not anything like crab at all. It’s one of the few times in my life I actually sent a dish back.

  3. HA! Those are absolutely true! I feel like a lot of restaurants treat their steak like that as well unless the picture shows something on it, lol. Guess we should start bringing brown bags to work again πŸ˜€

  4. That’s so true! It’s such a hit or a miss when ordering a salad at a bar. Better luck next time!
