A local staple for 25 years, Diego's Burritos swaddles its simple Mexican menu in a blanket of tender and warm tortillas. While the eatery's burritos ($2 for a regular, additional ingredients are extra) are the biggest sellers, Diego's also serves up a spread of other south-of-the-border eats, including tortas ($3) and tamales ($7.50 for a dozen). In the morning, open wide as a breakfast burrito sends a team of potatoes, sausage, bacon, ham, or chorizo into your mouth to explore each tooth and fertilize tongue buds with eggs (each ingredient is $.25). The guiso burrito, stuffed with beans and cheese, is the favorite fare of repeat feasters, though health-conscious patrons can opt for Diego's wheat-tortilla burrito with turkey bacon and eggs cooked in olive oil ($3.25). Diego's diners are free to feast in the restaurant or take their burritos to-go to fuel backgammon night.
Old Time Pit Barbecue harnesses the roasting power of mesquite wood coals to produce its menu of slow-cooked barbecue bites. Carnivorous incisors can devour dishes by the pound, including unsliced whole brisket ($8.49 per lb.) and tender beef ribs ($4.99 per lb.), while those seeking a more balanced meat-to-side ratio can opt for Old Time's blue-tray specials, which include the "Big Chop," a tongue-tantalizing one-pound pork chop with a choice of two sides, such as pinto beans, coleslaw, mac 'n' cheese, or potato salad ($10.99). Layer a sausage ($6.99+) with Old Time Barbecue's homemade Pit Sauce, a perfect filler for meaty sandwiches and swimming pools.

Classic comfort foods and homestyle entrees get a colorful, piquant reboot at Concho's Downtown. Chefs revel in mixing and matching influences culled from Southwest, Southern, classic American, and Asian cuisines, and diners match this penchant for fusion by pairing starters and entrees however they see fit. Southwestern egg rolls with avocado-ranch dressing might herald the arrival of the bayou chicken sandwich, whose jalapeno-jack cheese complements cajun seasoning, an onion ring, and chipotle ranch. Or, fried pickle chips, or wings with a choice of sauce, may be the prologue to the chipotle bacon burger or a custom pizza.
