If you’re on a search for the best burgers in town, Heck’s is surely not to be overlooked, as they’ve been serving up burgers since 1974. If you can handle the spice, the Hot Fire Burger is the way to go. Don’t forget an order of Heck’s Fries, topped with salt and pepper and a side of malt vinegar aioli. In addition to their original Ohio City location, they’ve expanded to Avon and opened a Heck’s Express downtown.

2050 E. 4th St., Cleveland
There are restaurants that we enjoy and then there are restaurants that we can’t stay away from. Mabel’s is one of the few Michael Symon restaurants that succeeds largely independent of the star chef’s renown. We go there not for the scene, but for the meat, amazingly savory, wood-kissed and consistent. And with a patio on East Fourth that’s dog-friendly, it’s the perfect spot on a warm night.

Old Angle Tavern
1848 W 25th St., Cleveland
This is a great, unpretentious place for drinks with friends. And also for your furry friends too.

777 Starkweather Ave., Cleveland
Perennial Best of Cleveland “Best Brunch” winner, Lucky’s Cafe cleans up annually thanks in large part to chef Heather Haviland’s heavenly cheddar-scallion biscuits with scrambled eggs and sausage gravy, a category killer if ever there was one. Bleary-eyed diners also flock to this Tremont coffee house for honey-coated granola, gingerbread waffles topped with maple-roasted apples, breakfast burritos stuffed with scrambled eggs, and the ever-famous Shipwreck, a dizzying mish-mosh of eggs, hash browns, bacon and cheddar. Hit up Lucky’s during the week for the same great food; there’s no rule that says brunch can only happen on weekends.

Prosperity Social Club
1109 Starkweather Ave., Cleveland
Cozy and retro, this former workingman’s watering hole serves up food, booze, and a bowling machine along with the live music. You’ll find locals laying down everything from lounge and jazz to folk and bluegrass. They also have a kitchen that stays open nightly until midnight and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

127 Larchmere Blvd., Cleveland
Tucked among the antique shops and bookstores on Larchmere Boulevard, Batuqui is a warm and welcoming space that feels like an extension of somebody’s home kitchen. The Brazilian restaurant offers entrees that tend to be rustic and satisfying, with plenty of meat, rice and beans. Be sure to try the stew-like feijoada, which offers flavorful pork and sausage with rice, black beans and cool tomato relish. Finish the meal with a cachaça-fueled cocktail like the caipirinha and the strawberry-scented Copa Kiss.

401 Euclid Ave., Cleveland
This is the place to get a slice downtown, especially if you’re looking for some wood-fired deliciousness. Try the pierogi pie for something fun and the patio is a great spot to bring your dog on a weekend afternoon.

Lindey’s Lake House
1146 Old River Rd., Cleveland
Coastal Taco turned into Lindey’s Lake House. While the name may and concept may have changed, the ownership group is the same, you can bring your dog and they kept the same fun atmosphere and good food for this joint in the East Bank of the Flats.

Boss Dog Brewing Company
2179 Lee Rd., Cleveland Heights
After a few year vacancy left by beloved Lemon Grass, Boss Dog took over the space and opened to much fanfare in late 2017. The microbrewery is the standout but the food isn’t far behind. Try some standouts like the candied bacon pizza, chicken fried duck and the potato pancake chicken salad sandwich. They also have a beautiful patio which now have enough heaters to spread the love.

Wild Eagle Saloon
921 Huron Rd., Cleveland
Since March of 2016, Wild Eagle Saloon has provided a rambunctious setting downtown for young and young-at-heart folks in search of pub grub, craft beer, bar games and music. This past summer, they expanded out to the suburbs and also tweaked their concept a bit, keeping their saloon feel but adding steaks to their name and their game.

2017 East Ninth St., Cleveland
A modern, sleek wine cellar located in the middle of the restaurant helps make the modern Mediterranean joint Adega one of the coolest-designed places in town. Located at the Metropolitan hotel/the Nine, downtown’s swankiest residence, means it’s not just beautiful decor, but the scene is worth checking out as well.

2061 West 10th St., Cleveland
Fat Cats is neither new nor flashy. For more than 20 years, this early-era Tremont bistro has lured diners to the far end of a quiet residential street by offering a cozy alternative to special occasion restaurants. We always find something on the menu that suits our mood, from a perfectly grilled off-cut chop to a fresh, seasonal pasta.

26235 Center Ridge Rd., Westlake
Westlake’s Sweet Basil is a favorite of West Siders. With a family atmosphere, fresh ingredients and some truly unique speciality pies – like a French Dip pie, or this “Mac Daddy” burger pie that’s pictured – you should hit up this joint.

Saucy Brew Works
2885 Detroit Ave., Cleveland
This “self-serve” pizza place and brewery is one of the shining gems of the new and improved Hingetown neighborhood of Ohio City. The former machine shop boasts a giant space that can fit close to 200 guests. They always have five or six beers on draught, with a current focus on sours and fruity beers like their Peach Guava American wild ale. The menu is designed around the famous New Haven, Connecticut style pizza.

You’ve got to love a place that makes Ohio City feel like a beach shack in Cozumel, and Johnny Mango — a “world café” and juice bar — does just that, with a blend of Asian, Mexican, and Caribbean flavors, and items that range from burritos to pad Thai to Jamaican jerk chicken. Service is speedy, portions are hearty, and there are plenty of choices for vegetarians.
