Dan’l Boone Inn, first firing up its griddles more than 50 years ago, caters to connoisseurs of comfort fare with a fixed menu of Southern staples served up family style. Soup or salad kicks off each all-you-can-eat dinner, paving the way for hearty heapings of fried chicken and country-style steak (up to $15.95 depending on age, free for children younger than 3). Between bites, tongue dive into a slew of flavorsome sidekicks that include coleslaw, country-ham biscuits, and fresh stewed apples. A delectable dessert then acts as the coda to a homestyle spread fit for the patron saint of the South, Elvis Faulkner himself.

Crave treats diners to the fine art of food shrinkage with their internationally influenced menu of tapas. Tapas are smaller plates intended for snacking, sharing, combining, and carting home in microscopic doggy bags to create unique full-course meals. Crab-cake sliders layered with roma tomato and remoulade ($4.15) slip past dental defenses to tickle exposed taste buds, and fried goat cheese ($3.95) fills tonsil caverns with the echoing flavors of its pecan crust and granny-smith apple garnish. Chefs reflect their global modus operandi with battered plates of vegetable tempura ($5.95), bowls of spicy tomato-tortilla soup ($3.95), and miniature cowboy hats filled with 4-ounce portions of filet mignon ($9.95). Those saddled with heftier hunger pangs can satiate themselves with a large plate, such as duck confit with mushroom risotto, french beans, and mushrooms ($16), before stifling cacophonous sweet chompers with a delectable dessert of poached anjou pear with Grand Marnier sauce ($4.55).
