Locals swear by K&L. The food is good, the prices low and the service fantastic. They don't take credit/debit cards. Surprisingly, they have fantastic chili dogs.

Don't bother. A sandwich resembles a flattened seat cushion and the tiny contents wouldn't fill a tablespoon. Tastes like cardboard too.
