Northeastern students know precisely where to go for pitchers of beer, live music, and piles of bar munchies that require a stack of napkins and a bottomless stomach. Welcoming its patrons with trivia, full-throttle bartenders, and two-for-one appetizer specials, Conor Larkin’s is a bar with personality and pub grub to spare.
Start off strong with the buffalo wings ($5.99), tossed with so much sauce that one may confuse coated fingers with the wings. Make friends at the bar by ordering the loaded nachos ($7.99), heaped with sour cream, melted cheese, guacamole, grilled chicken, and jalapeno peppers. Or kill two birds with one stone and order the loaded nachos “buffalo-style.”
Start your pre-game with the Guinness burger ($6.95), an eight-ounce beef patty marinated in Guinness stout and topped with fried onions and American cheese. Or indulge in the honey-mustard chicken wrap ($7.25), bursting at the seams with chunks of chicken, American cheese, and honey-mustard sauce. Lighter appetites may prefer the Gobbler turkey burger ($6.25), made with turkey that’s ground on-site, or a cup of New England clam chowder ($3.50), full of clams and potatoes.
Conor Larkin’s, located at 329 Huntington Avenue, in Boston, serves food daily from 11:30 am to 10:30 pm. The bar is open until 1 am. Call 617.867.0084.
