Casey Moore's in Tempe: Happy Hour Report Card
- A Century of Casey Moore's
The Hours: Happy Hour is offered Monday through Friday from 3 until 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The Interior: If you haven't been to Casey Moore's yet, you've either just moved to town, haven't studied at ASU, or just don't get out much. This Tempe mainstay has been slinging pints of Guinness and fried bar delights since the '80s and has no signs of slowing down. On a Friday or Saturday night, the expansive patio and indoor seating, along with the indoor and outdoor bars, are all packed. However, you're much more likely to find a place to sit and relax during happy hour.
Heather Hoch The fried zucchini and mushrooms are a crowd pleaser for $6.
The deal on eats during Casey's happy hour is $2 off all appetizers. You can go for the more adventurous options like fried calamari, oysters on the half shell, or even escargot. However, our favorites are some of the more simple dishes that are just straight-up bar food done right. The chicken finger basket ($6) comes with five crispy and crunchy breaded chicken tenders on a bed of fries with a generous side of ranch for dipping. The ever-popular fried zucchini and mushroom plate ($6) is a crowd favorite for a reason -- the veggies are still crisp, despite being fried.
Our number one Casey's app must-have goes to the mozzarella sticks, though. We don't know how they do it, but the outside is always perfectly fried and the inside is bursting with gooey, stringy cheese. We've never seen a basket of them last longer than five minutes on a table and at $4 during happy hour, you can easily justify ordering seconds.
