FIVE GUYS BURGERS AND FRIES

Another fast food spot that keeps it simple by serving tasty, juicy hamburgers made from fresh ground beef (never frozen.)  Bags of potatoes line the walls and peanuts are free while you wait for your order.  Aside from the burgers with bacon or cheese, all the extra toppings you want are piled on for free.  Even a little burger makes a big meal. The lunchtime crowd can often form lines snaking out the door.    Two types of fries are in the offering, either the house style or the spicy Cajun fries.  Hotdogs and grilled cheese round out the menu and while there isn’t a milkshake in sight, this no-frills joint provides a satisfying, quick meal .

Monday – Sunday: 11 am – 10 pm

LIME FRESH MEXICAN GRILL

All the choices you would expect in a very casual Mexican fast food grill. Quesadillas can be ordered in half portions.  All the items are giant size, all the salads could feed a family of four.  Tacos, fajitas and burritos are complimented by the addition of house made salsas, from tangy and refreshing to three alarm. There’s even a few selections sized especially for kids.  Lime is located on a sunny corner of the new midtown shopping district, with lots of street side tables.

SAKAYA KITCHEN

How about a quick meal that focuses on healthy alternatives to burgers and fries?  Sakaya specializes  in Korean barbeque with a limited menu  and specials listed on a blackboard.  Slow cooked (8 hour ) Berkshire pork on a clamshell style bun and short ribs  literally falling off the bone (hold the all too sweet honey sauce,)should prove a carnivore’s delight.  Try “Bulgogy,” the national dish of Korea, beef  marinated  in soy, sesame seeds, oil, garlic and sugar, wrapped in a lettuce leaf. The ginger, garlic grilled chicken  marries well with mesclun greens tossed in a superb salad dressing that could be drizzled on just about anything.  Sides feature the trendy kimchi,  a pickled Nappa cabbage,  coconut rice, and cucumber pickles made in their own kitchen. A selection of sake and Japanese beers are available.  A brunch of dim sum is offered on the weekends.

Monday – Saturday: 12:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Sunday: 12:00 pm – 9:00 pm
