By name, Jimmy the Greek’s sounds like a typical Mediterranean restaurant. However it’s evident that the restaurant-bar hybrid is much more. On most nights, guests can indulge in live entertainment and drink specials, including martini-and-manicure nights, trivia, and mechanical bull riding. Brewers of craft beers gather on Thursday nights to introduce themselves and their libations to crowds, and crowds put their knowledge to the test during late night trivia. To enhance the raucous happenings, bartenders serve up domestic and imported beers, accompanied by a Mediterranean-slanted menu of brick-oven pizzas, Greek-inspired appetizers, and innovative burgers.

For more than 20 years, Willows Pizza & Restaurant's marinara maestros have quelled orbicular cravings with hand-crafted pizzas and a plentiful array of scrumptious Italian dishes. The pesto chicken pizza ($16.99 for a large) dresses fresh chicken breast in a camouflaged coat of basil pesto to protect against bushwhacking pizza poachers, while the Clams Casino pizza’s white clam sauce sings a wistful sea shanty to accompanying bacon, garlic, and romano cheese ($20.99 for a large). Acrobatic calzones flip pizzas inside-out, with savory meats and cheese ensconced in fresh-dough pillows ($7.49), and myriad pastas and salads and hot or cold subs round out the feasting festivities. Willows slakes parched tongue buds with a selection of wine and beer poured into glasses, pints, or hollowed out life-size replicas of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Piles of chopped wood rest below the brick pizza ovens at Sianos, waiting to feed the flames that crisp hand-tossed dough, fresh-cut veggies, and meaty toppings sourced from local butchers and markets. The brick façade extends to the walls, which absorb the soft overhead lights that illuminate wooden tables and booths laden with seafood risottos, soups and chowders, and tomato-sauce-covered chicken. Scrawled in multicolored chalk across a blackboard expanse, the day’s Italian-inspired specials pair with delicious pours from the bar, which range from frosty local brews to European imports and extraterrestrial drafts. Refusing to be typecast as a pizza joint, Sianos also dishes out savory breakfast plates such as eggs benedict, pancakes, french toast, and breakfast pizza made with egg sauce.

It's hard to miss the chunky, red-and-white checkerboard pattern that cover's Goodheart's Pizza Parlor's exterior. And inside, a big black-and-white checkerboard coats the floor while walls pop with a stunning attention-grabbing yellow. So it's easy to see why customers are attracted to the pizzeria, and lucky for them, Goodheart's pizza delivers bold flavors that match the boldness of its decor. Specialty pizzas include the jalapeño-laced Tex-Mex pie, the feta-dotted greek pie, and the pickle-adorned cheeseburger pizza, which features ketchup and mustard in lieu of tomato sauce. Hearty traditional slices abound, too, like the Meat Lovers, vegetarian, and hawaiian, along with hot sub sandwiches and plates of pasta served with meatballs shaped like golf balls.
