Everything we ordered from the fish and chips, fish tacos, caprese flat bread and soft pretzel...all were perfect. And the chicken fingers were the best I ever had. They had a good selection of beer. A perfect lunch with the family right outside of Chinatown.

Fado is a classic Irish Pub - so much so that you feel as if you are in County Cork! The beer is plentiful and food is as you would expect.
