Hickory Street Bar & Grille

800 Congress, 477-8968 Monday-Friday, 6:30am-10pm; Saturday-Sunday, 11am-10pm
With hungry-student prices and a central business-district location, Hickory Street Bar & Grille is jam-packed come lunchtime. The quantity-minded will want to partake of the food-bar combo, which includes unlimited trips to the soup, salad, baked potato, and ice cream bars. Hickory Street also serves above-average hamburgers and a New Orleans-style breakfast menu. If you've spent a mint scoring front-row seats at the Paramount, a preshow dinner here will put you on the road back to solvency.
