With its giant Lisa Frank-style horse mural and hand-drawn menus with doodles all over them, Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack feels like someone found their Trapper Keeper from middle school and turned it into a restaurant - and a good one at that. All the food on the classic Italian-American menu is great, from the big bowls of spaghetti and meatballs to the eggplant parmesan. And everything comes in huge portions, too. By the time you’re done with dinner, the only thing you’ll want to do is go home and crash on the sofa.
