Two Beards Deli
This deli is similar to the EGR staple known as Cherry Street Deli. This grunge atmosphere and bohemian decorations creates a great laid back dining experience. Although the sandwiches are pretty solid here, there are more options at the Cherry Deli. I enjoyed eating here but the lack of options and the location downtown will not make me a returning customer.
This establishment is no Qdoba or Chipotle. In fact, it puts those restaurants to shame. El Arriero has a more authentic feel to their food. Their combos are equivalent to a single burrito bowl at both restaurants. I would highly recommend an order of their famous queso dip. It is a good balance of cheesy goodness with a kick of spice.
This ‘hole in the wall’ place was found as a result of a hungry fog and desperation. Although the space was not the most sophisticated, the pizza made up for it. The slice had a sweeter sauce and a sufficient amount of grease. It was accompanied by a few garlic breadsticks. The feast in total was $5 and as far as I’m concerned a place that sells pizza by the slice is an automatic win.
