Burger Joint
$$
“Featured on Man vs. Food, this dive-bar/burger joint is a local favorite. It's also the home of The Thurminator, a *giant* burger with countless toppings that only the most determined can finish. Please note that Thurman Cafe doesn't accept reservations and can tend to have a 1+ hour wait. It's worth it if you have the time! ”

They carry a large selection of Italian wines, meats and cheeses and an awesome selection of pizzas, pastas and signature dishes. All of the other Cameron Mitchell restaurants in the city are also wonderful (Martini, The Guild House, The Pearl, Del Mar SoCal Kitchen).”

Taco Place

“This is another Tex-Mex spot that has unique tacos and drinks. It's almost identical to Barrio Tacos in Cleveland if you've ever been there. Little more of a bar scene compared to Local Cantina, but the food is just as good. It's a great place to go with a group.”
