Hot Heads Burrito
5625 Pearl Drive
Across the street from AMC Evansville 16 is the West Side’s newest claim-to-fame, a build-your-own burrito restaurant that quenches any Mexican food craving in a Subway-style approach. Go fancy with toppings galore — lettuce, cheese, mild to spicy chicken or steak, sweet habanera sauce, jalapenos, guacamole, and salsa — or keep it simple. Every ingredient is handpicked by you. Hot Heads serves burritos in a bowl or tortilla shell, as well as taco entrees, quesadillas, and nachos.

Anthony’s Heavenly Cheesecake
204 Main St.
Located in the Lion’s Den Shoppes, this Main Street gem offers menu items ranging from gourmet desserts to beef hotdogs for a true American dine out. Known first for its cheesecakes, Anthony’s specialty flavors include butter toffee, strawberries and cream, turtle, pumpkin swirl, and banana nut. Although surprising, the rich treats are complemented nicely with any of the menu’s meat options, especially the Vienna beef hotdog, Cajun smoked sausage, or a pulled-pork barbecue sandwich.

Backstage Bar & Grill
524 Main St.  
In addition to a weekend music venue, Backstage has made a name for itself in the Downtown business market, offering midday specials and a sports bar ambience that brings Saturday night to any weekday lunch hour. Indulge from the start with a wide selection of “opening acts,” including tuna tartar, Scotty’s sweet corn nuggets, and absolute nachos. From there, make sure to try out any one of the headlining meat-and-bun choices, such as The Roadie, Chicken Tequila Tailgate, The Groupie, and the Bacon Lobster Tomato Sandwich.
