AMERICAN

BOULEVARD BREAD CO.
Fresh bread, fresh pastries, wide selection of cheeses, meats, side dishes—all superb. Good coffee, too. 4301 W. Markham St. (inside UAMS) 526-6661

CATFISH CITY AND BBQ GRILL
Fried fish and sides, including green tomato pickle relish and tast beef, pork and sausage sandwiches. 1817 S. University Ave. 663-7224

JIMMY'S SERIOUS SANDWICHES
Consistently fine sandwiches, side orders and desserts. Chicken salad's among the best in town. Get there early for lunch. The Garden Sandwich is an award winner. 5116 W. Markham St. 666-3354

GRAND CAFÉ
Offering an eclectic blend of American and ethnic cuisine using only the freshest ingredients prepared by their outstanding culinary staff and served by the friendliest people in town. 925 S. University Ave. (inside Hilton Metro Center) 664-5020

IHOP
The IHOP continues to please, whether selecting from its breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Good and fast—whether it's 4 p.m. or 4 a.m. 101 N. University Ave. 664-2014

OYSTER BAR
Gumbo, red beans and rice, peel-and-eat shrimp, oysters on the half shell. Good po' boys and ice cold beer. 3003 W. Markham St. 666-7100

ZACK'S PLACE
Expertly prepared home cooking and huge, smoky burgers. 1400 S. University Ave. 664-6444

ASIAN

CHI'S TOO
A huge menu spans the Chinese provinces and offers a few twists on the usual local offerings, plus there's authentic Hong Kong dim sum. 5110 W. Markham St. 604-7777

FORBIDDEN CITY
This Park Plaza Mall staple has fast, friendly service, offering up good lo mien at lunch, and Cantonese and Hunan dishes. Markham and University. 663-9099

PEI WEI
Sort of a miniature P.F. Chang's. It's fun and offers all the Asian favorites we like, such as the crisp honey shrimp, Dan Dan noodles and Pad Thai. You order from the cashier, get your own tea, silver ware and fortune cookies, and they bring you piping hot food to your cozy table. Markham and University. 280-9423

ITALIAN

GRADY'S PIZZAS AND SUBS
Pizza features a pleasing blend of cheeses rather than straight mozzarella. The grinder is a classic, the chef's salad huge and tasty. 6801 W. 12th St. 663-1918

PIZZA D'ACTION
Some of the best pizza in town, a marriage of thin, crispy crust with a hefty ingredient load. Also, good appetizers and salads, pasta, sandwiches and killer plate lunches. 2919 W. Markham St. 666-5403

MEXICAN

CANTINA LAREDO
This is gourmet Mexican food, a step up from what you'd expect from a real cantina, from the modern minimal décor to the well-prepared entrees. We can vouch for the enchilada Veracruz and the carne asada y huevos, both with tasty sauces and high quality ingredients perfectly cooked. 207 N. University Ave. 280-0407

  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
