Editorial Review of O'Donovan's

This is the best Sunday brunch deal we've happened across. For a mere $12.95, you can get silly with the full-spread buffet: piles of smoky bacon, fluffy scrambled eggs, buckets of country style potatoes and homemade waffles and omelets (made-to-order). And that's not all; there's also a big vat of homemade mashed potatoes, fresh fruit (blueberries and strawberries) with yogurt and granola, bowtie pasta with cream sauce, cut-to-order prime rib, salads, bagels, muffins and even more choices to expand the waistline.

Jumbo mimosas, thick bloody Marys and wickedly strong screwdrivers top most every brown tray making the rounds through the bar and outdoor patio (get there early for a seat outside). You can tell the randy crowd has been there since the buffet started (10 a.m.) by tuning into the volume that quakes high with every Bears advantage and dips low with every commercial break. We sorta like the quietness of the lulls, but watch out...the buffet room fills up again with hungry boys and yeah-I'm-stuffin'-it girls each time a commercial cues up.

Average cost: $21-$30
