here's a small list of places and the food i've quite enjoyed:
rich's burgers: bbQ burger (with coleslaw) and mac and cheese burger. rich's has decent peach cobbler too. i've tasted their green chili burger, also way good. the cook who usually works is kind of a goober, but delightfully efficient.
market street grill/seafood joint on 1300e 400s: these dudes have pretty sweet deal for a quart of clam chowder and a loaf of sourdough for like 8 bones.
b & d burgers is usually my go-to when i'm at work. typical meal there: cheeseburger and zucchini fries (with ranch to dip. fuck you fry sauce.). i will argue in behalf of their gyro as one of, if not theee, best in town. greek souvlaki #1 is probably a tie, but only becuase their rice is better. how can you eat a gyro without that rice yall?
the fucking maverick by my house has rico's burritos for $5.
village inn: southwestern potato pancake: carnitas, avocado, chili verde, and scrambled eggs: doubt me not.
duh, pie hole.
also, big daddy's has gone up a notch in my book when the dude working one night upsized our pizza for free and gave me and some amigos free drinks. i think they may have changed owners? they also have alot of extraneous non-pizza related food on their menu now.
while deli on 9th has a decent reuben, mine is still better. (whoa, this gives me an idea)
blue lemon cafe's braised beef sandwich is impossibly good. everyone give props to chaz when they eat one.
cakewalk vegan bakery is the shit. anything i've ever eaten there was perfect. madison, the new broken spells drummer works there a few days a week, go in and say hi. turns out cakewalk is pretty great for wasting a few hours. suggestion for kelly: MAKE NOODLE CABOODLE.
dragon grill is still mediocre in my mind. people keep telling me i "do it wrong", but i shouldn't have to go out of my way to make a resturant's food good. that's their job, not mine!
7-11 hot dogs are still killer. i tried their egg salad sandwich the other day. fyi, it needs pickle relish to set it off.
i think i'm gonna grab a rico's burrito on the way to bryan'n'cassie's. bryan and i are finishing el topo today. toodles.
HOW COULD I HAVE FORGOTTEN:
l&l barbecue on 4th south. i got loco moco. it is very hard to fuck this dish up. plus, they have brisk raspbery iced tea on tap.
