Craving a sandwich? Look no further. This place is so good! Plenty of options as well as a gourmet market. Open 10am-7pm every day. My favorite is the Treuben and Alex's is the Pastrami.

If you can, this place has some of the best food in town. It is usually packed BUT you can "get in line" with the No Wait App. They will tell you a time, and you just check in with the host when you arrive. Go for breakfast, served all day. Worth the venture north of town (you may want to drive). Plenty of street parking.

Personally, we think these are the best tacos in town. Cheap and come with delicious sauces on the side. Dine in or carry out. They have a hilarious mural of pandas eating tacos if you do dine in.
