Can anyone recommend any of the restaurants in the strip plazas located close to the University? Or could anyone recommend a specific dish/meal that is done well at any of the restaurants, even if most of their menu is mediocre/marginal?
I noticed the usual chain suspects like East Side Mario's, Harvey's and Mongolian Grill that I generally avoid, the McGinnis sports bar (or whatever it's called, which is basically equivalent to a Gabby's), as well as several Asian restaurants (Korean, Taiwanese, Chinese, etc.), a Persian place, different pita places, and a cevap place.
I noticed that Casa Salsa and The Grill have some recs on this board. Are those 2 of the better options in the area?
