Reader: Beef O' Brady's was the worst restaurant name ever

PizzaDoodle will soon open in Centennial, with a family-friendly atmosphere and one of the worst restaurant names ever. Locally, we could think of only one name that was worse: The Hole. That spot on Tennyson Street had an interesting concept -- doughnuts and beer! -- and a truly horrible name.

But as readers reminded us, there have been other nightmare names. Swallow, for example.

And then guest tossed in this one:

Could be among the worst concepts ever but I'm going with Beef O'Brady's (ok it was in Littleton) as the worst name ever.

Have another nomination for the worst name ever? Post it in the comments section below, or join the conversation already under way here.
