#1 – Lip Smackin’ Barbecue

“Tongue Waggin’ Down-Home Good” is the motto here, and it applies to everything from the Hog Heaven BBQ plate to Bob’s hickory smoked chicken salad. Come in and set a spell to enjoy a rack of ribs or hit the drive-through for some take-home. Barbecue is available by the half and full pound, and sides by the pint, quart and gallon.

#2 – Rockin’ Eats & Drinks

From the concert posters on the wall to the records on the turntable, this is the place for music lovers. Listen to some tunes, eat some wings or grab a pub burger, and wash it all down with an ice cold Tootla Creek Blonde Ale or other local brew (mixed drinks are also available).

Piled-high meats, serious sides and decadent deserts make this the must-stop spot for barbecue lovers.

Save room for the Brownie Skillet Sundae!

#4 – Danish Delights

#5 – Groovy Pizza

Swing by the grooviest pizza joint in town, where the pizza is oak-fired, and tie dye is always welcome! This is the place for specialty pizza, fresh salads and an unbeatable vibe. For something different, try a signature gourmet all-beef frank or the free-range chicken wings with an order of garlic-infused Grateful Bread.
