Since 1941, the Dickey family has been churning out Texas-style barbecue and tasty family-style sandwiches, sides, salads, and baked taters. Dickey’s lets customers choose off its menu of USDA-prime meats—all cooked slowly to smoky perfection over a hot-hickory fire-pit every night—including southern pulled pork, tender turkey breast, and Virginia-style ham. Start by slamming a quick cow workout with some sliced-beef brisket on the big barbecue sandwich, served with pickles, onions, and Dickey's famous sweet-and-spicy barbecue sauce, which took three years, two fist-fights, and one small kitchen fire to develop ($5). Otherwise, go with the Quarter plate, a 1/4-pound of your favorite meat served with pickles, onions, a roll, and two other homestyle sides ($7 total, sides $1.75 each when purchased separately). Choose from options such as fried okra, green beans with bacon, or mac 'n' cheese. Diners with more than one mouth to feed can play hot potato with a giant stuffed baker ($4.50).

Be kind to waistlines with Fuentes' skinny enchiladas, a guilt-free duo of chicken enchiladas topped with Spanish sauce, whole beans, rice, and salad that contains only 5 grams of fat ($6.75). Regardless of the contents of your repast, Fuentes Cafe's friendly ambiance will ensure that your visit is as happy as the diary of a teenaged clam.
