    Stop by after catching a show at Auditorium Shores (this year: Cheap Trick, She & Him, and Ozomatli). Don't like meat? Well, heed their slogan: "Horrifying Vegetarians Since 1988."

    Guy visits this barbecue joint that uses only green mesquite wood or young wood for cooking. The owner swears by it for giving the meat the best and most consistent flavor.

    Sliced beef chili and cheese fries are a great starter to share. Ask for side or ranch Ribs are better than brisket.
