From a vegan-friendly diner to a greasy spoon to a late night burrito joint, Northside’s many culinary hot spots are as diverse as the folks who frequent them. What most restaurants in Northside have in common is that they are independent; aside from the requisite Taco Bell and White Castle, the smile that serves you in Northside often belongs to the face that owns the place.
Slims is an eclectic, slow-food restaurant run by Patrick McCafferty. The food at Slims is always fresh and changing, with a decidedly South and Central American feel, and a locavore slant. Some of the greens and vegetables served are even grown in a small garden between two buildings around the corner!
If your budget is tighter, or you’re eating late night, head to The Comet Bar for a killer burrito, people watching and free bands or Boswell Alley for awesome grub food until 4 a.m.
