Lidos - The Euro Spot leads a double life as a quaint European bistro by day and a lively dance club at night. During lunch and dinner hours throughout the week, chefs simmer up signature dishes of russian goulash with Angus beef, Hungarian-style chicken paprikash, or german pork schnitzel in a creamy mushroom sauce. Tabletops sprinkle its sunny outdoor patio, and soft green walls surround the white-clothed tables of its dining room. Come nightfall, however, the tables are swept away, the lights dim, and the room fills with the sounds of bumping dance music, live bands, and karaoke. A well-stocked bar serves up regular drink specials, including ladies’-night discounts for women or poodles in convincing tutus.
Blue Moon Café serves up a menu of enticing eats in a cozy atmosphere of families and foodies. The black-bean hummus appetizer greets diners flanked by a veggie and pita entourage ($8). Pizza-wooers can choose from a selection of pies such as the margherita pizza, topped with tomato, mozzarella, fresh basil, and marinara ($10). Smoked stacks of turkey in the Big Nice 'n Panini stand on layers of havarti cheese, basil pesto, and sun-dried tomato spread set into a focaccia foundation ($9). Though this Groupon cannot be used on alcoholic beverages, the café's vast selection of wines and specialty craft beers pleasantly accompanies digesting delights.
Riverside Grill slings subtly spiced, homemade burgers while offering a menu full of grill-kissed Americana. Beefy meals such as the hamburger ($3.79) and double burger ($4.79) can be dressed with add-ons such as bacon, cheese, and coleslaw at no additional charge. Any diner can add fries ($1.49) or a soda ($1.49) to a visibly lonely burger. Located next to Cape Fear River, Riverside Grill makes for a quick meal before an underwater 5K or a meaty roadside feast for carloads of fish-based college mascots.

For the past 20 years, the chefs at Sammios Italian have been perfecting a luscious meat-sauce recipe. The rich tomato gravy studded with tender, savory meat arrives at tables over platters of noodles—spaghetti, lasagna, and ziti, to be specific. In addition to pasta, the chefs marinate pork chops in their own seasoning blend and bread eggplant before smothering it with parmesan cheese. In addition to the dining room, meals are also served amid fresh air on the patio. There, servers continue to roll out dishes such as rib-eye steaks stamped with the USDA’s seal of approval—the outline of a cow waving a white flag.
