~A Little Bit of Everything~Fat Alberts: This small family restaurant has a cozy atmosphere, great staff and the food is the classic comfort food you remember from your childhood. From their best selling Monte Cristo sandwich, to French Dips, massive burgers and generous fries, chicken fried steak and the best pie around! And don’t forget the oh-so-delicious Corned Beef and Cabbage served every St. Paddy’s day, but also once a month to help appease those CBC cravings! Swing by Fat Alberts and dip your toes in the water, you won’t regret it!

~Italian/Greek~Santeramos: Ahh, Santeramo’s. A most delicious guilty and fulfilling pleasure. This restaurant tucked away in a cove of trees where you can sit in shade on a summer day or in the cozy confines of the restaurant was one of our greatest finds. The food is so flavorful, zesty and bountiful in proportion it’s sure to knock your socks off! Momma says “No One Leaves Hungry” and boy did she mean it. This pizza house offers classic Italian dishes with homemade pastas, savory and juicy meats and sauces, homemade breads and crusts for the pizzas, calzones and sandwiches and even has low-calorie options! Now if that isn’t the perfect comfort food, I don’t know what is! Enjoy a platter (and we mean platter) of Italian Nachos to share with friends while sipping on an insanely cheap 32oz beer, or gobble down a healthy portion of meat lasagna and finish with a delicious dessert option. Whatever you choose, you won’t be disappointed!

~Mexican~El Cielo: El Cielo is a wonderful little Mexican restaurant which quite possibly serves the best Queso Fundido ever (melted cheese and chorizo for those of you scratching your head), tasty chili rellenos with just the perfect crispness and covered in your choice of mild-hot green chili, build your own choices with some of the best carne asada around, seafood and children’s options, breakfast burritos (ah-mazing), the fluffiest sopapillas (don’t forget the honey!) and even to-go options for those with little time but a rumbling tummy. One of my favorite traditional dishes with a twist are the Alambre Fajitas which are traditional fajitas but are topped with a heaping pile of melted mozzarella cheese, and served with the normal garnishes (lettuce, tomatoes, guac & sour cream) Yummy! The cheese just makes them pop! Hurry down there today and find something delectable that will make your tummy smile. Oh, and don’t forget to ring the bell if you liked it!
