Okay, so Hennessey's isn't going to win any major culinary awards, but let me just state that for a greasy-spoon-bar, they have some damn good food. Working at United Healthcare in Oldsmar, employees order from this place all the time, mainly because it's close and they deliver. So after a while, I jumped on the bandwagon and too began ordering lunch from this place in '06. One day a few years later, I decided to actually drive to them and eat there. When I arrived, I was shocked to see this hole-in-the-wall bar. When I walked in, the place was packed with individuals in the 35+ age group all sitting around guzzling beers and smoking cigarettes. The air was quite thick with cigarette smoke, actually. I couldn't believe this was the place that was churning out some of my favorite lunches--but it was. So I sat down, ordered a chicken Caesar salad and a Blue Moon and enjoyed every bite! This place truly is Oldsmar's hidden lunchtime secret.
Chicken Philly - Large enough for two to split, comes with a generous portion of steak fries.
Chicken Caesar salad - Massive with seemingly more chicken than lettuce. The chicken is also hot off the grill, which is a nice contrast to the salad's cold temperature. And it's the only salad I've ever seen that comes with a whole tomato. Very tasty and very big. Probably one of my favorite Chicken Caesars.
Chili - Their chili is amazing. Â It's home made and not some crap out of a jar or can. Â If you're feeling frisky, get the chili cheese fries! Â Also, once a year, they host Â a chili cook-off.
Wings - Very, very good stuff with their wings. Â Honey BBQ is the way to go. Â Not as good as McDivot's but just as edible! Â
Hungry for breakfast? Â They dish up some of the best in town, and it's dirt cheap. Â On Saturdays and Sundays, they offer breakfast until 1 PM!
