Beef O'Brady's in Maumelle - Where Kids Eat Free on Tuesday's

If you're looking for a place to catch the game this weekend... this little neighborhood spot is certainly worth a mention - for the food and the fun. Here's why I like doing this kind of story. You have to know where Beef O'Brady's (Not much Irish Pub fare at all), affectionately referred to as Beef's, is located ... or you might miss it. As a matter of fact, I did. I even asked a guy who's lived in Maumelle for a while if he could give me directions - incredibly, he said he'd never heard of it! And Beef's has been there for 8 YEARS!!!! 115 Audubon... just off Maumelle Blvd in the Town Center Shopping Center - down the sidewalk from the Wal-Mart Grocery Store - not the Super Center - the grocery store.

Beef's is known for its signature wings - Owner of the Maumelle location, Rebecca Jones, says they come in come in 8 varieties and during the week of Superbowl, the franchise, couuntry-wide, sells about 2 million of them. Lot a wings... lot a bones! My favorite - the Sweet Jalapeno, a blend of just the right sweetness with a little kick.

But they also have grilled options, like the chicken you see above right (the chicken is tender and tasty- it's marinated then grilled to perfection, served with mashed potatoes and gravy and broccoli); a variety of sandwiches including the Cuban and Reuben and salads - the one with the grouper looked really tasty but I didn't sample it.

For those looking for more traditional sports-themed fare, burgers are on the menu as well as
all things fried - chicken fingers, mini turkey corn dogs, nachos - and it was the first time I'd ever seen the jalapenos grilled - cheese dip and salsa, to name a few.

And you must not leave without trying dessert (not made in house but still worth having) - the signature is a decadent chocolate cake, however, my personal favorite is the turtle cheesecake.

Jones stresses that while she does have a bar - Beef's is a family restaurant with a game room for kids to play while their parents catch the games on one of 20 televisions. Beef's carries the NFL ticket as well as college games. During the football season the restaurant will feature discount wings and "build your own nachos." Beef's caters and also has a private party room. The restaurant is also non-smoking.
