The luck of the Irish rubs off on visitors to Enoch’s Irish Pub in Monroe.

This “Irish pub with a Louisiana attitude” offers the best in beers, burgers and bodhrans.

“We’re on the Irish circuit,” says pub founder and owner Doyle Jeter of the musicians who perform. “We get the best in Irish musicians.”

Many of those bands include the traditional bodhran, an Irish frame drum considered the heartbeat of Irish music. As for the burgers (named after Ireland’s towns and provinces), they were featured on the Louisiana Cooking magazine’s list of “Best Burgers Around the State” in August 2007. And the Guinness gravy, a variation on an authentic Dublin recipe, “uses stout, but we’ve spiced it with the holy trinity of Louisiana spices – celery, bell pepper and onion,” Jeter says.

St. Patrick’s Day is, of course, a busy day at Enoch’s, and Jeter takes the opportunity to raise money for charity on that occasion.
