This is your basic family-style Italian restaurant, where the portions are large, the prices are ridiculously low, and the quality is fine.
You'll find lots and lots of innovative small plates, as well as overflowing paella pans at this popular South Lamar tapas bar.
This is the kind of place you pass by without noticing. Next time you shop on West Anderson, stop in for a great prime rib or a filling, fresh Thai steak salad.
Some say the sliders here are the best in town. Happy hour draws a crowd, and so do the 31 TVs for the sports set.
For weekday lunch try the tahli platter, with meat or vegetarian style, which includes nine items that change daily. Appetizers like Chicken 65, fried chicken morsels.
Serves everything from sliders to carnitas, and TVs abound. So do the beer choices, with 20 on tap and more than 50 by the bottle. Try the portobello cheesesteak if you have room after the cheese curds and fried pickles.
Black Star is the world’s first cooperatively-owned and worker self-managed brewpub. Start with the fried jalapeños, or a cornbread, and try the sandwiches or dinner entrées as you work through the local brews.
Pizza, yes, but the breads and pastries are the real stars of the show here. The sandwiches are impressive, too. Check the calendar for rotating daily specials such as the chocolate cherry bread.
Everything we've had has been amazingly good. Complex and richly layered sauces and superb breads form a large and unique menu.
Be sated by one of the biryanis or the aloo paratha, whole-wheat bread stuffed with potatoes and peas.
Your waitress may resemble a runaway who's lost her clothing, but don't call the cops – just order the ribs.
