Why does South Street get no mention? Do law students avoid it, or just not like ribs?

I think plenty of people go there, it just didnt fit into any of the categories. They have great beers too, a bit pricey to go for just drinking, but a nice spot for a good meal and quality brew.

Yea, there are plenty of places including South Street that went unmentioned that are fine but just not my/Swinger's top picks.

Miller's is pretty awesome too -- Sunday through Thursday, 8-9, is half-price beer, and they have a really decent selection of beer.

Well, don't. The food at Rapture, on the other hand, is very very high quality. Highly recommended.

edit: for the type of place it is, of course.

Huh, I actually haven't been there. I'm here as an RA over the summer so I'm trying to branch out and try more places, I'll give that one a go.

Until someone mentions Beer Run, nothing that has been said can be taken seriously.

I hate to say it, but they're a pretty mediocre bagel. That said, everybody in C'ville who's never had a bagel from someplace like NYC thinks that Bodo's is the best thing since sliced bread, so there's probably something to the argument that ignorance is bliss. I would sacrifice a small animal for Bellair right now, though.

They're not great compared to NY but for what they are, it's a good place and the bagel sandwiches are good and cheap.

Bodo's is an epic bagel failure. You aren't legit if you neither scoop nor toast.

Best restaurants in town: Maya, The Local, Zocalo. C&O deece but limited menu. Petit Pois on the downtown mall has solid brunch.

Most underrated: the Japanese market in Main Street Market...has way better sushi/sashimi than overpriced Ten.

Most overrated: Ten (priced like Nobu, tastes like Teeter), Mas Tapas
