Besides their amazing coffee, this restaurant is known for carrying more of a hipster and laid back atmosphere and serving your food, full of flavor with it also being aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Can I just brag about this family-owned restaurant for a moment? Kyber Pass Kabob does a great job making you feel as though you are Afghanistan royalty. They are known for their welcoming, and beautifully designed/traditional Afgan atmosphere. Many locals recommend arriving hungry because they have big portions filled with some of the best flavor and Afghan food in the area.

5. Wild One
You can never go wrong with an authentic style Mexican restaurant. Griselda the owner of Wild One takes great pride in the food being served to her customers guaranteeing them a fresh, bold, and tasty meal. So many of their regular customers express how impressed they are with their unique flavoring in their foods; one guest actually asked them, “ Is licking the plate socially acceptable? For this place, I don’t care.” This statement alone won me over in having to try Wild One out myself!
