Weekday Lunch: Lyman's Tavern is now open at 11 am, kitchen at noon

As part of my continuing Weekday Lunch series, where I check out local restaurants and food options for lunch during the week, I headed to Lyman's Tavern at 3720 14th Street NW, just south of Quincy.

They used to open at 2 for lunch but have since changed that to opening the bar at 11 and the kitchen at noon, which is great.

I stopped in a bit ago and got a fantastic pressed Cuban sandwich with ham, pulled pork, pickles, peppers and spicy sauce. It's probably one of my favorite sandwiches in the neighborhood so far. I've also had really good pulled pork BBQ sliders with spicy red cabbage there. All sandwiches come with chips and if I recall was about $9 or $10 with tax.

They serve meatball subs on Monday some days too and they have tasty pupusas too. Also on the menu, which I haven't had yet, are tacos and more.

I like the lunch vibe too, it's pretty quiet and relaxed, and on nice days you can sit at the outdoor bar area. And it's always fun to be able to play pinball with lunch. Definitely a good lunch option.


  1. Meatballs are on Wednesdays.

  2. Kudos to Lyman's for opening during lunch. There is a big demand for more lunch options in the neighborhood. The lack of a kitchen has always bothered me about Lyman's. Its a great neighborhood bar, but they could really go to the next level with some better food options. Its not bad per se especially compared to some of the other run down options with bullet proof glass in the area, but I don't know that its something I would seek out. Walters Sports Bar does the "no kitchen" well, but with new places opening up all the time (Aerdale, The Homestead, Slims Diner), these existing places will need to step up their game if they want to keep their clientele.

    PS. LOVE Lyman's popcorn flavors though. They should build around that!

  3. There's a meatball monday too on their Facebook. I'll just put occasional meatball subs.

    And I disagree about Lyman's, I think their food options are great. Really good sandwiches and pupusas.
