Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles.

The quiet, intimate atmosphere at J's On Main spotlights casual conversation and the eatery's wide selection of tasty dishes. Daytime diners can munch on a lunch of meaty chili ($2.59 cup, $3.99 bowl), which can hibernate in a cavernous bread bowl (add $2.19) in the chilly months. All of the toasty sandwiches, such as the prime rib ($8.99) and the famous Reuben ($8.59), arrive with fortifications of seasoned fries. If you'd like to keep your meal as light at a globe-trotting eccentric's hot-air balloon, try the smoked-turkey wrap ($6.69) or the Asian chicken salad ($4.79 petite, $7.69 entree size).
Fridays bring a satisfying array of casual American dinner fare, including the fall-off-the-bone baby-back ribs ($14.99 half-slab) and the 16 oz. T-bone steak ($17.99). A prix-fixe menu ($15.95, selection changes weekly) enters the flavor fray on Saturdays, which allows for a hearty mix-and-match of dishes such as grilled salmon with balsamic pesto or a choice of one of two steaks, a soup or salad, and a choice of one of four succulent desserts.
