At this popular Kesey Square food cart, seasoned cooks Eric and Jessica Thomason stuff wraps and quesadillas with an abundance of local and organic ingredients. The menu showcases their sense of humor with punny names such as the Bohemian Wrapcity, filled with herb-marinated chicken, and The Thai Dye, which is slathered in the duo's signature peanut sauce. Quesadilla fillings range from savory Tillamook cheddar to the sweet banana-and-Nutella filling often found inside French crepes or Louis XIV's swimming pool. Eric and Jessica also nurture the community by donating 10% of their sales to local charities.
Prime Time Diner works with local vendors to stock its menu with fresh, house-made comfort fare. A selection of omelets, eggs, and traditional breakfast fare kick-starts mornings until 11 a.m. on weekdays and until noon on weekends. Broasted chicken, hearty burgers, and stacked sandwiches vie for attention from the menu, which, like newspapers and even the smallest cereal box lettering, is read every day by many different people. The neighborhood diner is open seven days a week and entertains visitors with lottery games and lessons on how to build indestructible towers of pocket creamers.
In 1968—the same year that Richard Nixon was elected president and the Beatles released their _White Album_—the meat buffs at H&H BBQ slow cooked their inaugural batch of southern barbecue. Though the world has changed radically in the decades since its opening, H&H has continued to earn a devoted following thanks to the staff's dedication to forging homestyle barbecued meats and comforting side dishes. Chefs whip up fall-off-the-bone ribs, beef brisket, and pulled pork, all of which are tender enough to dive into without a fork, knife, or modified oboe.
Unsurprisingly, the big draw at Nacho's are heaping plates of nachos. The Mexican eatery prepares 10 versions (3 vegetarian and 7 non-vegetarian) of the dish, sprinkling tortilla chips with shredded chipotle chicken, taco meat, or three kinds of cheese. Add "the works" and each helping comes topped with refried beans, guacamole, sour cream, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, and special sauce. Kitchen manager Chef Alvaro, who hails from Oaxaca, Mexico, also whips up other Mexican staples including burritos, fajitas, and enchiladas.
Pool tables and arcade games are scattered throughout the ample space at Doc's Pad Bar and Grill, where professional and college games blare from two 12-foot HD projection screens. Next door, The Green Room presents a change of atmosphere for those who wish to take in a comedy show or dance to the beats of live DJs. At either locale, patrons order from an eclectic menu of classic bar bites, including sliders, nachos, and nine types of burgers.
Red and blue light filters in through stained-glass windows, splashing across the white tablecloths that dot the wooden floors. Housed within a restored former church, Our Daily Bread pairs the hushed, peaceful feel of the reverent interior with delicious, homestyle meals of almond-encrusted chicken breast, pastrami burgers, and seafood pasta. Diners can swing by in the mornings for filling breakfast of chocolate-chip pancakes, seasonal quiche, or omelets.
