Like piñatas, bodies must be filled with quality ingredients to effectively satisfy the demands of screaming children. Summon the strength to endure a baseball batting from a blindfolded child with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fresh comfort fare at Panos' Restaurant on West 38th Street. The Erie eatery has been a staple in the northwest Pennsylvania restaurant scene since its opening more than 60 years ago, serving up an eclectic menu of comforting comestibles for daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Enjoy everything from basted cajun eggs ($6.49) and steak sub sandwiches ($7.29) to a supper of pierogies and onions served with a fresh veggie, salad, bread, and butter ($6.99). Panos' lays claim as the sole keeper of Erie’s “Greek sauce” recipe, so fans of flavor-enhancing liquefied concoctions and grad students specializing in Hellenic studies alike can enjoy the diverse dining options at Panos' under an umbrella of special spices.
