Some Tasty Local Eats
If you have a hankering for good ole authentic Smokey Southern Style BBQ, Greens, or Fried Okra around lunchtime visit Ray's Mr. K's BBQ at 6302 S. Park Avenue (520-792-9484) for some of Mr. K's BBQ that will put a real smile on your face. For a more commercial version by his father, sister, and some other investors visit the Mr. K's BBQ at the N/W corner of Stone Avenue and River Road in the old Chili's location. Best bet at that more commercial version is often to buy the BBQ Beef, Chicken, or Pork by the pound from the menu board behind the steam table for take out or to eat there and then skip the somewhat overpriced and bland tasting sides and pricey drinks offered. Just remember to ask for extra BBQ sauce to go!
Seems that the Magpies Gourmet Pizza locations around town are constantly on the top of many local lists for really great daily specials made with actual fresh ingredients and you can taste it. With your choice of different grains used for the crusts, and the pizza being available in numerous varieties of different sized whole pizza pies mean when you bite in you know it's not just good, it's so good you'll want to tell your friends and bring your out of town guests there too
