Restaurant Details

This 60-year-old University Village Italian beef and hot dog joint offers a touch of low-fi class: a giant old-fashioned clock and fake plants in wrought-iron holders adorn the faux brick and terra cotta walls, and there’s a jukebox full of predictable pop at the far end of the restaurant. The place was hopping at 10 PM on a Wednesday night, serving up chili dogs and Italian sausage to hungry students and bargoers. The juicy Vienna Polish is a steal at $2.60, served in a paper bundle alongside a heap of thick ketchup-slathered fries. Unusual menu items include Barq’s Red Cream Soda (a fruitier version of the classic), a "chili tamale boat" (with one scoop of chili or two), and the potato sandwich: a French roll dipped in gravy then stuffed with french fries. Vegetarians can opt for a melted cheese sandwich piled high with grilled sweet peppers.
