This casual fare establishment is so popular that it’s even been featured on the Food Network. Hillbilly Hot Dog serves up hot dogs any way that you could possibly want them. The menu includes the Chuck’s Junk Yard Dog, with homemade chilli and all the fixings, and the Pizza Dog with melted cheese and pepperoni. Patrons are welcome to customize their dogs using the ‘Weenie Builder’ and some have been good enough to earn their own place on the menu. If you choose to go spicy, you can also customize your dog with a sauce rated in spiciness. Make sure to order some of the ‘fried fixins’ and ‘hillbilly deezerts’ to complement your meal.

Step aside Chipotle, because Cilantro Latin Grill serves up the best burritos with a smile. Patrons love the warmth from the staff as they’re served their fresh-made South American food. Cilantro serves up freshness with the consistency that many chain restaurants simply cannot, so next time you’re craving burritos or burrito bowls come to Cilantro and choose from Guadalajara steak, ground chorizo, chipotle and lime pork, and more. For a twist, try an arepa, which has flatbread made with corn maize instead of a tortilla for a gluten free option.

Nothing compares to the charm of an historic building like Drovers Inn & Tavern, with a structure that was completed by craftsman in 1848. If the draw of the atmosphere will lure diners for the first time, the food will keep them coming back. Drovers Inn is famous for its wings and homemade blue cheese, so make sure to try them with one of the ten sauce options. The tavern is truly rustic, with vintage signs and mugs adoring the walls and ceiling.
