McSorley's Old Ale House Restaurant Review

: This may be among the best places to eat a burger on a rainy afternoon or in the wee hours, when a musty old saloon, especially one with this much history, seems the proper place to be. Around since 1854, McSorley's has the faint odor of more than a century's worth of stale beer --- ale to be precise. Accompany the brew with a platter of saltines, onions, cheese and zesty mustard or order a corned beef sandwich. A working-class neighborhood bar, it kept a men-only rule until 1970, when it was targeted by feminists. It has since been discovered by the college crowd. Expect long lines just to get in the door some nights.
