Taco Place
$$
“Love the tacos, one of the best tacos in the city! They use grass-fed meat for their beef tacos, and it shows in the flavor. Also, the happy hour (4-6 pm daily) with one dollar margaritas should not be missed. :)”

Gastropub
$$
“Fun and quite loud, this is a great Irish sports bar with not your average pub food, a real local hangout. Bloody Mary Oyster Shooters, Filet and New York Steaks, Shepherd's Pie and a good selection of salads and burgers are a few highlights. Big full bar and tv screens everywhere.”

Bar
$$
“Just 1 block away, denizens and loyal locals hit up the Fireside Bar for the unbeatable vibe: It's laid-back and perfectly divey. But, the establishment’s centerpiece — the fireplace — is the main draw. It can be hard to secure real estate on the adjacent couches, so feel free to kill time by playing DJ at the digital jukebox. ”
