Highlights of this pizza joint include an old car converted into a table, the Philly cheese steak, large slices of thin crust pizza, and deep-fried Oreos. A favorite among bar hoppers, Spinelli’s is open till at 5 a.m. all week in one of the city’s busiest bar corridors, and offers delivery until 4:30 a.m.
The menu at this Westport-area eatery is heavily peppered with just-like-Mom-used-to-make favorites like meatloaf, pot pie and fried chicken. Try the chicken livers or fried green tomatoes served with plate-scraping “creek” sauce.
The ceramic pig outside signals the great pork barbecue inside. A smoked-meat empire in the making and Louisville favorite since 1988, Mark’s barbecue chicken, pork, and spicy mustard-based sauce keep it on the carnivore club’s frequent-visit list. Also, try the onion straws and fried corn.
Roll up your sleeves. This Peewee Valley joint serves all manners of smoked pork, as well as honey-glazed ham, homemade country-fried potatoes, coleslaw, potato salad and desserts, including Donna’s Cherry Delight.
This cherished South End eatery is still a place you go to make discoveries. Recommended: the Vietnamese pancake appetizer and the beef marinated with lime juice as well as anything over rice vermicelli. Don’t neglect the list of traditional Vietnamese dishes at the back of the menu.
