After seeing the guitar head logo, it's not a surprise to walk into City Limits Saloon and see a musician strumming an acoustic or queuing up hits from the DJ station. Listen closer, and one might hear the frenzied swivel of foosball handles, the excitement over games of Golden Tee, or the thunks of darts sinking into their foam boards. However, biologists theorize that one cannot live solely on music and games, and so the saloon stocks its menu with Tex-Mex staples.
Chili and cheese soak into plates of waffle fries, while pork belly confit adds a savory texture to bowls of mac and cheese. Chimichangas, enchiladas, and burritos establish the Mexican bona fides of the menu. But the drinks at this establishment are of equal import—tall pints of craft beers and glasses of tequila flank the bounty of Tex-Mex. The moodily lit dining area is surrounded on almost all sides by brick walls, giving the feeling of eating in a wine cellar or a soda pop cellar owned by a mason.
Leggos serves both morning and midday meals from open to close, giving contrary clientele the chance to opt for a soup and sandwich for breakfast or eggs benedict for lunch. The kitchen wizards chop up 10–13 fresh fruits daily to fill fruit bowls to the tippy top ($3.75/cup), and top waffles ($7.50) with heaping helpings of strawberries, blueberries, or cranberries. Early morning diners can wrap digits around a breakfast quesadilla loaded with spicy eggs, bacon, onion, peppers, and cheese and dip it in homemade salsa before savoring an included side of home fries ($7.50). Or, sharpen rusty arithmetic skills by adding up three eggs, two pieces of bacon, two sausages, one order of toast, and a side of home fries, and dividing it by however many mouths you own ($7).
More than 15 years ago, owners Mike and Amanda made the leap into bread-bound fare when they opened Fressers Delicatessen. The shop continues to thrive thanks to the culinary expertise of Mike and his mother, Eileen, who whip together every menu item onsite for customers lined up at the counter. The duo churns out a spectrum of deli eats, from traditional Jewish knishes to hearty salads and grilled sandwiches that tower over fellow noshes like a big brother standing on a chair. The Famous Fresser triple-decker sandwich piles the deli's biggest flavors into a single stack, bursting with sizzling corned beef, pastrami, turkey, roast beef, and melted swiss cheese between three slices of bread. Such ebullient fare has made Fressers a popular lunchtime-delivery joint, which also puts together meals for business lunches, dinner parties, and annual holiday gatherings.
If its name doesn't tip them off, visitors to Campanale's Restaurant need only glance at the menu to realize this place is Italian to its core. More than 10 specialty pizzas take up but a small slice of real estate on the menu and include the chicken fradiavlo loaded with hot cherry peppers and onions. The rest of the menu features familiar Italian favorites, including marsala and parmigiana, alongside dishes that are a bit harder to come by such as grilled swordfish and sirloin pizziola–a 16-ounce sirloin topped with mozzarella and spicy marinara sauce. For added convenience, Campanale's also has a gluten-free spread packed with many of its regular dishes.
