If you have some time to sit and relax in the middle of the day, head to Serious Pie within the magical window of 11am -3pm, when you have your choice of really solid pizzas or crazy biscuit sandwiches. For pizza, go with the sausage and peppers pie with provolone. As for biscuits, the fried chicken with Tabasco black pepper gravy is stupid good. Serious Pie & Biscuit doesn’t just work for lunch, though - stop in later for a low-key date night or an after-work group hang. They don’t take reservations, so prepare for a wait during peak dinner times.
