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.
Our readers say it’s the best traditional pie in town, with piled-high toppings for big appetites. Besides traditional pizza, Wick’s has pizza-inspired appetizers like the Stuffed Breadwick and the Wick-A-Dilla.

Stop into the Louisville outpost of this Austin-based Tex-Mex chain after shopping at the nearby malls.
