The Porter delivers with a cheap, thoughtful and satisfying menu, and beer to match. Most of the food is designed to please beer drinkers, and the regular menu doesn't get much wackier than the combination of applesauce and the addictive applewood smoked bacon hushpuppies. For beer lovers, the Porter gives us a world-class list without having to drive to Decatur. The close to 200 beers range from all manner of domestic microbrews to hard-to-find Belgians to $100 bottles from Switzerland.
Price: $$ ($10-$20)
