This business – which also has a food truck/catering arm in Chicago – takes a home cooking approach to meatless cooking. BBQ, mac and cheese, greens and pizza are among the options.
It??s hard to beat the Reuben served at this hard-working, no-frills bar. McBob??s even does a meatloaf stuffed with corned beef and bacon. Not sold on beef? Try the build-your-own burger or massive tacos.
Locals follow the aroma of smoke on Center Street to the walk-up window inside. Best bets are the BBQ dinners (ribs, rib tips, chicken) and family meals (pan of shoulder, ribs, tips, etc.). Head down on Thursday night for the weekly special gumbo.
This little bake shop has earned a diverse, devoted following for its cookies (triple-chocolate ginger), pastries (croissant) and rustic whole grain breads. Lunchtime options – a savory tart with potatoes and onions was a recent standout – are complemented, sweetly, by flaky creations, and there’s nary a wrong choice. But the kouign-amann (say “queen ah-mahn”) takes the (butter) cake.

The tacos served here are in the style of L.A. taco trucks; the margaritas are made with free-squeezed lime juice. You build your margarita by choosing the tequila – there’s no shortage of options.
