Dishing out custard and a cornucopia of ice-cream flavors, Cones and Bones satiates sweet teeth in a canine-friendly environment.

Pet parents can treat animal compatriots to a doggie sundae (starting at $1.85) or kitty krunchers ($3.50/package), unless they want to deal with emotional outbursts on Fido's doggie bloggie again.
After celebrating a grand opening in a new South Cedar Street location, Tacos E Mas continues to serve up an ample menu of classic Mexican food–now with both dine-in and drive-through service. The restaurant's cooks follow family recipes passed down through generations, stuffing wet burritos with ground beef or chicken and topping them off with white gravy and melted cheese.

The Udder Creamery showcases exclusively Michigan-made ice cream, appearing in more than 30 flavors to concoct its menu of rich, frozen desserts, which satisfy cravings until 11 p.m. nightly.

Diverse ingredients, such as Gold Rush's chocolate-covered potato chips and Anniversary Cake's colorful frosting, playfully stroll through the brain-freeze fodder and can also be liquefied into a shake or malt ($4.50+) for increased sippability and esophageal merrymaking. In addition to supplying Michigan-cultivated scoopables, The Udder Creamery uses eco-friendly homegrown products, such as plastic cups crafted from corn, whenever possible, and it offers delivery on orders of $10 or more (requires a $2.50 additional fee).

There, patrons lounge in burgundy booths or turquoise chairs as red paper dragons and lanterns dangle from the ceiling. Nearby, a giant golden folding fan rests on the green wall, enjoying its well-deserved retirement from cooling off mouths singed by Szechuan sauce.

A pool table and dart boards adorn Irish Pub and Grill's vivacious game room, whose presence is key to preventing illegal gambling rings from breaking out among adjacent dining parties.
