Bagby is the pizza place you wish was in your own neighborhood. Pie crusts are cracker thin, pastas and salads are homemade and generous, and service aims to please.
"Joe Squared looks like an off-campus dive bar, and that's a large part of its charm. Depending on who you are (scenester or square), you'd rate the ambiance with four stars or none. The large-format square pizzas are noteworthy for their thin crusts and creatively devised specialty toppings: an Irish pizza with corned beef, caramelized onions, mozzarella, and Swiss; a chicken, corn, and apple version with Granny Smiths and Vidalias; another with meatballs and spaghetti. Pasta dishes and ample entrée salads are also available. Start with wings or the good stuffed focaccia, and bear in mind the dodgy location."
"A neighborhood favorite returns and picks up more or less where it left off, serving exemplary pub grub faves (e.g. juicy hamburger made from local beef on a brioche-style bun) in a bustling causal environment."
Pete's Grille has three drawbacks. It's small, so finding a seat at the counter--and there are only counter seats at Pete's--is nigh impossible during the lunch rush or any time on weekends. They only serve breakfast and lunch, and close early even for a breakfast-lunch-only joint. Otherwise, Pete's is a darn near flawless restaurant. Prices are terrifically cheap, and the food is homemade and excellent. Tenderly supervised long-cooked home fries reach Platonic perfection here, and the thick, thick, thick shakes are made with old-fashioned milk-shake mixers.
Thai Arroy is the prettiest little storefront Thai restaurant you ever did meet. The smartly costumed servers and decorative touches, like elaborate cloths placed under glass-topped tables, help distract from the reality that the food is just shy of greatness. The vegetables are pleasurably crisp, and the larb, a cold peppery beef salad finished off with fresh mint, is excellent, but meals are often too mild. Still, Thai Arroy is a favorite spot for affordable lunch specials. For dinner, try the ped chu-chee, perfect duck topped with chile paste in coconut milk. BYOB.
Not a carte—or even cart—at all, but the garage of the purple-painted Bonjour French Bakery and Cafe on the west side of Falls Road at Lake Avenue, HDC serves up a limited but frequently changing menu of gourmet dogs
