Slinging spirits for nearly 80 years, the historic Checkerboard Tavern tackles appetites with a menu of gourmet hot dogs and slays thirsts with local brews. Toting the oldest liquor license in the state above its well-stocked bar, the Check sports a wide selection of domestics ($2.25), microbrews ($3.50), and regional suds ($3.50) from Golden Hills, Laughing Dog, and Iron Horse, as well as an old-timey jukebox that coughs up five spins for each greenback fed into its golden gullet. Get cozy in a fire-engine-red booth and anchor incisors into an assembly of encased meats, such as the Sonnenberg Dog, which tops a classic italian sausage with onions, ketchup, mustard, and relish, or the old-fashioned PB&J Dog, which arrives with crusts cut off in a He-Man lunchbox ($4). All dogs can be substituted for vegan tofurkey sausage, and assorted snacks and house fries are available for noshing ($5–$6).
Lalo's Pizza & Calzone serves a plethora of pizza toppings and sauces culminating in a savory smorgasbord of customizable treats. Patrons begin by choosing a size of flat earth to forge into homestyle, handrolled crust ($5.99–$16.99). The indecisive may choose to rely on tried-and-tasty specialty pizzas such as The Legend, a toothsome discus piled with pepperoni, italian sausage, beef, mushrooms, and more, or a Lactosaurus, a milky oddessy of mozzarella, asiago, provolone, romano, and parmesan ($9.99–$26.99). Choose from prime pie gravies such as the classic red sauce, tangy barbecue, zesty marinara, or an exotic thai peanut sauce. Toppings include the familiar back catalogue of Pizza's Greatest Hits, such as pepperoni, italian sausage, ham, and black olives, but also fresh-baked b-sides such as anchovies, minced garlic, artichokes, and sweet corn ($1–$2).
