“Great dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

I have been to Padre Murphy's many times over the years whilst visiting Phoenix and I must say....this restaurant is fantastic. The location is convenient, food is great, atmosphere is brilliant and the outdoor seating area is great when you want to relax in the evening whilst enjoying the misters! Great place to drop by!

“A pub and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

This was our first to visit this place. Almost drive by. It is a bit tricky to find. We stopped by for a late afternoon snack, and were surprised not only by its inviting rich woodsy interior design, but also by its numerous TV screens. Once we settled in at the mahogany bar, we noticed that it is also an off-track betting location. The TV atmosphere was not overwhelming, and the background music was at a perfect level allowing for a normal conversation. We ordered the red pepper Hummus plate, which was filled with red bell peppers, cucumbers and deep fried pita bread. To die for. Never had deep fried pita bread. OMG. The combination was perfect. Additionally, we ordered Binghampton Chicken Speedie. Another winner. A skewered chicken on a warm and fresh pita bread with a side of a herb-wine vinaigrette was surrounded by shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes and red onions. The ingredients could not have been any fresher. A must go-to pub/restaurant.

“Nice little pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

Stopped in for an appetizer and a beverage. We ordered the hummus appetizer. you get to pick from regular or red pepper hummus. We chose the red pepper which came with cucumber slices, red peppers and what seemed like deep fried pita bread. Fried pita bread doesn't sound good but it was delicious. Padre's is an off track betting bar so you can bet in the ponies, football, baseball, whatever you like. It was clean, the service was quick and pleasant. Reasonably priced. Given that its a betting bar, not sure I would bring kids but not sure.

“Great Friday Fish Fry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

We go to this restaurant frequently for the Friday Fish Fry, but on the occasions we've been on other days the food and service is just as good.

The restaurant is also an off-track-betting location, so at first, we felt it wasn't for us. But once we decided to try it, we were hooked. The service is friendly and fast, but we never feel rushed. The noise level isn't bad, and the food is great. The Friday fish has never disappointed us. Whether you are dining at lunch as a couple, drinks and appetizers later in the day, or with a group for dinner, then experience is always good. This is our go-to choice for a reliable meal, and have taken all of our out-of-town visitors.

“Great, fun place for both food and brew”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

Love this place, we have been going here for years. Especially fun during football season as the crowd dresses up in their favorite player and team jerseys.
Burgers are great, the skinny fries are great and we have always had good service, inside or out.
Great place for a bunch of friends to get together and a sure bet for out of town compnay.
They also have off track betting which we don't use but it's there.
Good place....
