Sights and Shops Off the Beaten Path

Erin’s Top Pick

The 5000 is the perfect combination of Tex-Mex and Southern comfort food. Menu options vary from street tacos to BBQ pulled-pork fries smothered in cheese. Their adventurous spirit and spontaneous specials are what keep us coming back for more. Who wouldn’t want a bacon wrapped hot dog with pulled pork, BBQ sauce and coleslaw? Delicious.

Shop
