Zachary’s BBQ Southern Comfort & Catering serves up Memphis-style barbecue in a vibrant locale. The menu features ribs, barbecued andouille and chicken, voodoo shrimp, beef brisket, fried catfish, and even paella. All meals are accompanied with phenomenal homemade sides including collard greens, BBQ baked beans, mac and cheese, and maple mashed yams. Plus, each order comes with complementary cornbread. They offer an awesome selection of specially made barbecue sauces including jerk sauce, vinegar, hot sauce and mustard. For dessert, try the chocolate bread pudding.
While we were ordering the Chicken & Rib platter, the guy behind us said, "y'all should try the brisket sandwich too." Shout out to the stranger that told us to order this😉😉. #HeDidntOfferToPayTho🤔😂. In the picture, BBQ Brisket Melt (Beef Brisket with Cheddar Jack and Cayenne Onion Crisps) with Fried Orka from @zacharysbbq.

For those looking to satisfy their sweet tooth, head over to Zwahlen’s Ice Cream, which is much more than an ice cream shop. Located in an Alpine-style lodge, Zwahlen’s is also known for their wide selection of quality chocolates, and everything is made in-house each day. There is an outdoor patio and seating area that is perfect for enjoying an ice cream on a warm day. There’s also a selection of waffles and crepes. Not to mention, Zwahlen’s is also known for their delightfully creative candy apples.
Taqueria La Michoacana is the perfect place to get a Mexican food fix. La Michoacana does all the usual stuff like guacamole, enchiladas, Cubanos, poblanos, nachos, tacos, tamales, mole, and gorditas, all with a quality and authenticity that can be hard to find for Mexicana in this region of the country. Finish the meal with some homemade flan, tres leches, horchata, or fried ice cream. Plus, it’s BYOB, and they serve a complementary margarita with every entrée. This is a great local gem with a festive, welcoming ambiance.
