Though Thickles And Pickles opened its doors in 2016, its owners have been in the restaurant biz for over two decades—and it shows. The unique menu invites curious diners to explore everything from healthful smoothies to whacky wiener sandwiches. Among Thickles' smoothie specialties is the Hulk, which gets its dark-green hue from fresh baby kale and spinach, blended together with grapes, apple, banana, carrot puree, a touch of honey. Beyond hot dog options—affectionately named dog bites—hunger-havers can find a slew of hot and cold handhelds, like the Pug burger. This house burger recipe is enhanced with guacamole and island dressing before being topped with crisp bacon, blue-cheese crumbled, and burger must-haves: tomato, lettuce, and onions.
