The Place

Tucked away just north of 35W in the Northeast neighborhood is a classic mom and pop style lunch/dinner spot.

Make sure to park in their exclusive parking lot just off the back of the building to keep your walk short. Inside is everything you’d expect from your local neighborhood spot, the black and white checked floor, the old metal chairs and tables, the coca-cola refrigerators, and some classic photos of the neighborhood on the wall. When entering you’ll be greeted by their friendly staff which will probably include the owners. You can put in your order at the counter, grab your drink from the refrigerators, and head to your seat!
